Friday Grind….

cupFriday morning coffee at the Daily Grind with Joanne Minor…picked the coffee cup of the week…this about sums up my life….life is good especially with crème horns….it’s been quite a week, quite a month, but life.is.good.  Because you can’t measure life by the blows you take, but by the times you get up….especially when there are friends there to lift you.  Ok enough hallmark Christmas mushy stuff….

Got some Weekend Words of Wisdom from Java Joe…and if you haven’t been to the Daily Grind, what the hell are you waiting for?  Local business owned by a fantastic family – The Salisbury/Bearor/Petrie tribe.  They themselves support local businesses and organizations and when you walk in there – or drive through their little drive through- I guarantee you come out a little happier.

I asked Joe if he had any words of wisdom….but being the guy he is, humble and kind, all he could really comment on was how appreciative they are of their customers, especially the loyalty (Denise!  that was your word too)…and what he learned through this year of first time…was the customers were loyal and yet there was such a diversity amongst them.   He’s met a ton of people.  And if you are sitting in there drinking coffee, you see that this place is a magnet,  not only because of it’s yummy menu and strong coffee, but because you are met with kindness.  And there’s no price tag on that – kindness matters.  Kindness counts.  And in a world where negativity is so easy to blast, especially behind a keyboard…to approach another person face to face, no screen and to be kind….is epic.  And that is just plain good business.

Java Joe wants you to know the drive through is open on Thanksgiving until 1pm.  After you run or walk the fantastic Noyes Family 5k.  Tradition.  Until next week, Java Joe….

 

 

About mermaidmom9https://mermaidmomdotblog.wordpress.comI am me. A middleaged mom on the way dark side of 45 with four kids - 3 are "adulttoddlers" and one STILL in high school....I feel like I have been in high school forever. Anyways, I am almost married to the absolute love of my life and he tolerates the dogs, the kids and my rambling well. Sometimes I think it's because he has earbuds in. Anyhow, in the throes of a midlife crisis, which is basically, I don't want to be anything but independently wealthy and swinging in a hammock on some tropical island I own....and dodging hot flashes- which are definitely not the same as the Caribbean sun...here I am. And here you are if you found me. Welcome to my world.
