God’s Coffee

I got this as an email forward from my dad. I don’t know what the source is. If anyone does, let me know so I can cite it.

God’s Coffee:

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: ‘If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases, it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us. ‘God brews the coffee, not the cups………

Enjoy your coffee!

‘The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything they have.’
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God.

Have a great day! Love and Hugs to all of my past, present and future friends!

Wolf is my favorite!

ed note: in the video above, Wolf appears at 2:04… also, I had initially put that Stealth was my girl Gladiator… but I had the name wrong… It should have been Crush!

ok… admit it… who watched American Gladiators last night? Raise your hands… Come on now, don’t be shy… I know I wasn’t the only one… if you are my age and you didn’t wait with bated breath for AmGlad to come on back in the day… I weep for you…

So, yeah… I watched both hours last night and I am setting aside time tonight to watch the new episode. It’s just so much fun to cheer for the contestants (or the gladiators if the contestants are dumb). I turned on my surround sound and cranked it up… it was awesome!!!

oh… and, Crush is a hottie!
