Teddy Bear Latte Art
Coffee with “the moms,” a fluffy, caffeinated sentiment. No doubt a leftover from yesterday’s romantic leanings… I think little French cafes with eclectic customers, lovely coffees and pastries made by a actual French pastry chef and his son, get hit particularly hard during such times.
Well – it certainly wasn’t wasted on us… if you know anything about me, you know I like my Friday coffee with lots of personality… maybe just a touch bougie.
We discussed family, the possibility of dinner with my brother Sunday, the sad state of this week’s movie theater options, the unseasonably cold weather, our dear friend and her impending delivery, small anecdotes I found in our family genealogy this week, how the 6 month old boy on the couch next to us wore his beanie waaaay better than I wore mine, how people actually FIND Instagram followers, what constitutes a really good IG picture, why cinnamon lattes with extra cinnamon are better than most any drink imaginable, why star fruit are totally underappreciated and cats nap all the time, why you really need to embrace your own health instead of relying on doctors and the medical profession, why timing is so important in life and how my mother needs a golden retriever someday… but not a young one mind you, a nice, preferably slightly “senior citizen” one.
Ahhhhhh… so much I learn, so much I see differently from her eyes, so much GOOD I remember in living and in the life I’ve known when we speak… a little rollicking in our cups, a touch serious, mostly laughing.
There is no amount of money, no life situation, no glamour or fame which would ever replace these small hours we get to spend together.
I have said before, but it will always bear repeating, I am the most blessed of men.
Not only do I have my mother… but I cherish her.
She taught me how to do that too.
