Wednesday Words #6 – Paradise

“This morning, with her, having coffee.”

– Johnny Cash

What more can anyone need than the person they love beside them…and caffeine?

Truth be told, I was not a coffee drinker until the daunting year that was 2020. Figures that I started getting interested in the beverage when I couldn’t even go to different coffee shops in my city and try out various roasts and brews.

But I digress… This quote by Johnny Cash has long been one of my favourites because it mirrors my sentiments exactly. There is no paradise I can imagine that would be better than sitting beside my husband, a book and warm beverage in hand, our son dozing beside us. Being surrounded by these two boys is the thing that keeps my heart still and calm, and we could be anywhere on Earth and right beside them would still be my absolute favourite place. I adore the home and life we’ve built together, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, and I totally agree with Cash’s suggestion that the simplest things in life are often the most comforting and profound.

So, in this time that is still crazy and tumultuous, let’s all find as much pleasure as we can in the simple things and the people we can have around us and clutch tightly.
