Tradition! I like it.

Tradition is, when anything big, small, wonderful, sad, exciting, depressing, or any other out of the norm thing happens, then first, we must have coffee.  I've had a lot of coffee the last couple of weeks.  Although it wouldn't stop me from continuing the tradition, I have come to realize how important the "we" in "first we have coffee" really is.  The coffee in and of itself is terribly comforting, but I think perhaps only because of my past experiences with "we" having coffee.  It's a reminder of fine conversations, a little bit of crying, and a lot of laughing.  Feeling a bit homesick right now.  Oh well though, I can't have everything all at once.  Must go drink my coffee alone and study for a theology test.

Alone is often a very good thing. "We" will have coffee again, laugh, cry, talk. "Satisfy us in the morning with Your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days."
