I forgot my coffee
Dang!
Sitting there now, on the counter, feeling bad it was left behind
Singing a sad song
Knowing coffee is in my bag elevates the pleasure of my walk, sloshing with every pace inside its steel jar, ready to make me happy whenever a bench appears and invites me to sit
My mom’s kitchen always smelled of coffee
She would drink it even before bed then fall right to sleep while watching I Love Lucy
Maybe she never really slept
She did not like silence or darkness and always wanted the lights and the sound of the TV on
If you thought she was asleep and turned the TV off, she would awake and say, “I was watching that.”
When she died, her funeral reception was in the same room where people would gather after Sunday service and it was always scented with the smell of coffee
The scent lingered still, in the air, when we said goodbye

I love this post Em, it’s so funny that I do the same thing. It’s so great the smell of a good cup of coffee and The comfort of I love Lucy in the background! So glad you shared that!
Love you
