I absolutely love my family, being a mom and making memories with them. As my three boys grow, I find myself having to work a little harder to make special connections with them. Who would have thought hovering over a warm cup of coffee would turn a quiet Sunday afternoon into a breakthrough day. Yesterday as the rain came down and my oldest was vegging out watching the MLB game, I put on a pot of coffee and joined him. The smell of the Coffee-Mate Pumpkin Spice creamer filled the air. My son was impressed with my ability to make coffee look and smell delicious. Pumpkin Spice coffee with a large dollop of cool whip, is enough to make anyone reach for a mug.
After our cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee and a couple of hours later, I went to bed with a full heart and a renewed love for the fact that my teenager is growing up. As any parent can attest it’s a balance to watch your children grow up. As much as we want them to stay small and safe, we also want to watch them flourish while staying connected. All it takes is a quiet moment to disconnect from the rest of the world and connect with those around us who we love.
I am making it my mission to find those moments among our busy days that seem to all run together and make them count. Can a cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee with one of your favorite people create an amazing moment of connection? I dare you to try!
