If We Were Having Coffee…

If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that this week has been hard. I would tell you that though it was hard, it’s gotten better.I’d tell you that I am trying to remain thankful above all.

This week I’ve gone through fear and pain, yes, but I’ve also felt great joy, gratitude, and love. I am trying to remain thankful, grateful, gracious.

I am thankful for my family, friends and loved ones. You are my light in this time of confusion and darkness.Thankful for this blog for giving me a voice, an outlet, and some direction. Thankful for the simple things; the breeze, the birds, music, sleep. These simple pleasures are so beautiful.

If we were having coffee…

I would look down at my steaming cup of cappuccino and brush off my worries like crumbs on the table. Everything is fine, I would say. Maybe then, just for a moment, I could believe it too. 

 

If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that things aren’t always so great. I would smile and laugh so my worry would seem trivial.

I would tell you that my job is good for the most part. Though talking with angry clients really hurts my heart. One bridezilla and I cry my eyes out for the entire day. The burden of the perfect wedding is falling on their shoulders and to them, it seems okay to place it on mine too.

I would tell you that even the thought of going into work on Monday causes my shoulders to tense, my back to ache. Their big day becomes my big day too. Maybe I don’t have thick enough skin for this.
