It’s always the simple things that brighten one’s day and lift the spirits. This coffee cup, for example. My best friend Patty painted it for me, and I painted a cup for her (see here). It was one of those “paint your own pottery” places. She titled this one: “Club-footed Penguins.” Because they look a little inbred, don’t they? Poor club-footed penguins.
I left the cup with her to get glazed and kilned – a process that takes a few weeks — and yesterday it arrived at my doorstep.
So, a smile to my lips with each sip. May your mornings be as happy and hopeful. Amen.
