This is really not about a coffee cup, but that is where it starts. Monday morning, as I waited for the coffee to finish perking, I reached up into my cabinet and took down one of my very favorite coffee cups. You can see a picture of it below…mine has a “K” on it. 🙂 My mind drifted back to a conversation that I had with my daughter.
We were packing up the kitchen when she was moving into her new place, after her and Blake had finally broke it off. I had bought her one of these cups with her initial and his initial for her birthday and it just so happened I was packing up the cabinet with the coffee cups in it. I asked her about keeping the cup with a “B” on it, telling her I could give it to my friend Becky. She took the mug from my hand, and she said something along the lines of “No, I’ll keep this for now.” I knew the reason she was keeping the cup was because already, God had put someone in her life to help through the process of moving on and letting go. His name is Bryan.
I can’t explain how or why the pieces start to fall into place except to tell you that it is divine intervention. I can’t even begin to tell you all the ways that Bryan has helped her, but what I can tell you, is that when her heart was shattered, he just happened to be there (God’s timing is perfect), and he caught the pieces in his hand. And while I know her heart is still not whole, I know the man that holds it for right now, realizes that he is holding something very precious. Now that is one big blessing! And when I count that blessing, I have to count the ones that followed it. So here it goes…
From Blogging with a purpose, to Believing everything happens for a reason, to accepting the Beginning of the end, to Best friends that love and support me, to Birds that can fly anywhere they want to, to new Beginnings, to a coffee cup with a “B” on it…I am finding my way.
“B” is for blessings. “K” is for Kaylee and Karen.
