About this photo: We're sharing our favorite photos of the year as part of a very special Thematic. Please click here to participate.To some, it's just a mug of coffee. To me, it's coffee that my wife made. Which makes it uniquely special, because to me, at least, it's far more than percolated beans with a bit of milk and sugar.
It's a little thing that connects us, a moment between sleep-time and our pedal-to-the-metal day that reminds us why our family matters as much as it does. Because before we had kids, before we needed to shuttle them around town, before we tended to their every need before we tended to our own, we sat together over mugs of coffee or tea at our quiet kitchen table.
Even if not a word was said, the conversation was always glorious. Still is.
Your turn: What's your morning ritual? Why does it matter to you?
