An Ode To Black Coffee

Thank you.

An Ode To Black Coffee

Black coffee:

I thank you for working miracles for me, even though I know you can't respond with "You're welcome."

You really have gotten me through a lot. I wake up in the morning and I feel better knowing that you will be there for me; knowing that you will always be there for me. You give me the energy to take on my day. You give me the gifts of happiness and joy. You even help me to remember what I have to do for the day. Thank you. You are the best.

Your color is so dark and reflective. You remind me that everyone is different. Everyone has a different color; not one looking identical to the other. We all come from different places. You, I know, come from Costa Rica. Everyone is different. The others come from all over the world.

I know not all are made to be strong, but you are strong and bold. Almighty you are. The others like the way they are: weak and bitter. Sometimes I find you slightly bitter, but most of the time you are perfect to me. Even if you are bitter, you are loyal.

Your aromatic fragrance is something else I appreciate. You always change it up. Some days your scent is French Vanilla, and others it is Southern Pecan. Every day, it is invigorating. Your smell is charming to most, especially to me. Bridging the gap of time from childhood memories to present day indulgence, you draw everyone to where you are located. Most of the time you are in the kitchen.

You have changed a lot. You have been around for so long that people became creative. They came up with different ways to make you who you are. You are always dressed in different colors, covering your body and giving you character. I would never dare to judge you based on what you are dressed in.

Your warmth is what I like the most on a cold day. I love having you right next to me to keep me warm. Even on a hot day, you are there to cool me down and take some of the heat away. I love having you there next to me no matter the weather.

I appreciate you. You have always been there, leading me to the right choices. You bring a kind of love into my life that makes me feel warm all over. You make my heart race. Strangely, you relax me at the same time.

You bring people together! Everyone loves taking pictures of you. You are so good to me, so good for me. You are stylish and personal. You are unique!

You are my coffee.

Thank you, black coffee.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
