Coffee (It’s So Hard To…)

At first, I really didn't want to write this but after some inspiration from a friend of mine and the feeling of being in the same boat as her, I'm lead to share.   There are seasons in our lives where we just want to hang on, sometimes desperately, to the memories and familiarity of…
