It’s Wednesday, May 15. I just finished up my shift at the café. I’m sitting on my porch trying to figure out what to write about and I’m stumped. I started to think back about the last espresso that I wrote. And wow! So much has changed since then! The past few weeks have been crazy! And beautiful! I recently got to witness the breakthrough of robin’s eggs becoming little baby chicks in a nest that I found in the courtyard at the café. Then I experienced the heartache two days later after finding the nest rattled, empty, and abandoned. That’s life... isn’t it? The breakthrough and heartbreak. Finally having the love of a mother for myself, but feeling the constant sting of missing my own daughter. Being reunited with people that I love, but only through the death of someone we all loved dearly. The good comes with the bad. The happy and the sad. Life always shows up, but His mercies are new every morning. What is important is staying in a position to be encouraged to keep going. Encouraged not only by the ones around you, but by the Lord as well. And most importantly receiving it.
