Monday Mottoes – #14
Which brings us to today’s motto: “Morning has broken. Mr. Coffee has spoken.”
While I normally drink decaf coffee, or decaf green tea, I must admit I departed from my puritan ways while in Israel. In-room hotel coffee makers offered decaf coffee packets which I used up first of all, then regular caffeinated coffee (used second), then Turkish coffee, or what Israelis call “botz” (mud — which settles in the bottom of the coffee glass).
Life in the Middle East revolves around coffee. European cafes are packed each morning as pedestrians stop by for a java jolt. Stop by any American Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or McDonalds, and you’ll see much the same. Or in the average person’s kitchen, as they brew up a morning cappuccino. It’s a celebration of sorts to have a hot cup of tea, a steaming bowl of bouillon, or a mug of hot cocoa in the morning.
Life is meant to be celebrated. You are meant to be celebrated. Stay warm and embrace the day before you.
Happy Monday, everyone!
