Day 1040 -- Biscotti and Coffee

A couple of days ago in the teacher's lounge, one of my friends was making some coffee in the Keurig machine.  Now, since I am pretty much a total cheapskate, I don't ever use the Keurig machine because I don't buy the K-cups.  I made a comment about how good this particular brew had an amazing odor.  She responded that she enjoyed this "Mocha Swirl" flavor K-cup with a chocolate biscotti in the morning.  We went our separate ways, her with the amazing scent of mocha swirl lingering behind her, me choking down my cheap Folger's swill, complete with grounds.  Okay, it's not that bad, but it felt like it at the time.

When I got to school today, I checked my mailbox.  In it I found a mocha swirl K-cup and a chocolate biscotti.  She even left a note that the biscotti was vegan friendly!

I went back to my room and enjoyed my treat before any students came in and it was a wonderful way to begin my day.

I am so thankful for this lovely and generous gesture that got my day off to a wonderful start.

Thank God for biscotti and coffee!

Lord, thank you for this friend who made my day.  Thank you for a treat first thing in the morning.  In your name I pray, Amen.


My coworker just bought a reusable k-cup (maybe $8?) for the Keurig and brings her own coffee. Could be a solution for you.
