This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

The Cup of Coffee

I poured a cup of coffee for myself. Uh-oh! Out of sweetener. I quietly sneak out the front door, so that little children don't follow me to the garage. As I enter the garage I realize I should switch laundry. I first stuff my pockets with sweetener packets so that I can have both hands for the laundry. As I place the laundry on the couch I see the pants I want to wear for the day. I go to the room and change. On the way back to put the sweeteners away and continue with my cup of coffee, I pass the boys room. I take some time to direct them on how to make their beds not forts. Coming back down the hallway, my daughter is in the bathroom naked. I stop to help her and clothe her. Finally, I make it back to the kitchen to unload my pockets and make the cup of coffee.
I take a sip and enjoy the one sip I had the opportunity to take. Someone is stinky! Off the change diapers and clothes. I see what time it is and realize I need to get going on my plans for the day.
Two hours later I warm up that wonderful cup of coffee, sit down at the computer, and look over at my baby who grabs the cup. Needless to say my baby drank more of my coffee than I did!
