Day 114: Cup of Joe for a Joe
Today was a struggle for me to get going. I couldn't get out of bed quickly, and was plodding around the house completely tired. My wife had to get to work early so she was pushing me to get moving. I was able to finally get ready but almost fell asleep in the car on the way to her work. It wasn't until I had my first cup of coffee that I finally started to function like a normal adult. I never really drank coffee before Isla was born, but have started drinking it almost daily now. I kind of take it for granted that my wife will always have a cup of coffee waiting for me in the morning.
Cup of Joe for A Joe where you are able to purchase a cup of coffee for soldiers stationed overseas. In addition to the cup of coffee, you are able to write a letter to whomever receives the coffee. So today, for my random act of kindness, I am going to purchase a cup of Joe for a Joe (or Jane) and write some words of encouragement. A cup of coffee can not only provide the soldiers with some added caffeine to stay on their toes, but can also provide them with a semblance of the comforts of home.
