Coffee, Tears, and Peeps
This morning I choose the black mug.
I love cool looking coffee mugs. Happy ones that make me smile and bring me joy.
When Zayne passed away I could not bring myself to drink coffee out of my joyful mugs.
Thankfully two days after Zayne passed I found a black mug at Fred Meyer and that mug became my grieving mug.
It’s Easter morning. When Zayne was a toddler he had lots of blonde fluffy hair that stood straight up and he looked like the cutest Easter duckling.
I always thought that someday I would decorate Easter eggs with Zayne’s kids and tell them about how their Dad looked liked a Easter duckling when he was little.
Needless to say, today I choose the black mug.
Coffee, peeps, and tears. That was my Easter morning.
Remember this – Those who mourn – heal. Those who don’t mourn – live with a never ending ache.
