I have to say, every time I’m in a pinch, Starbucks has my back. Lately I’ve been ordering at the drive-thru on my way to work because I can’t seem to wake up early enough to brew myself a pot of the True North Blend at home. I’d love to be one of those people who wakes up two hours before they leave the house, sipping coffee and journaling on the back patio under the morning sun. But the reality is after I hit snooze three times, I get out of bed with just enough time to get ready. I have tried to be this person who gets up early to make themself a coffee, I mean I even bought the Perfect Coffee Maker, but I need my beauty sleep. So I’m grateful Starbucks is in my neighbourhood as I can swing by before the commute to work.
I fully recognize how lucky I am for the relationship that I have with my mother. Not everyone gets the chance to have something like this, for many different reasons. Whether it be because their mother has passed away, that their relationship was or is strained, or maybe they grew up not knowing their mother at all. Other people were raised by someone other than their biological mother, who ultimately became their mom (or moms). There are so many different definitions for the word and the feeling of what this person can mean. So, let me tell you all about mine.
When I stop to think about the people who have made the biggest impact on my life, there are of course a handful that come to mind right away. But besides those beautiful members of my world, both near and far, it’s important to remember where it all started.
Where I learnt to be a good person. To give the world my best. To have hope against all odds. To be kind. To love unconditionally.
