how does it feel?

Ever close your eyes because you felt something special?

Tall, iced and with milk, that’s how he likes it – most of the time.

I love spending time with James because he reminds me of the beauty of being from a village in Nigeria. He reminds me of the little things that one could take for granted in a land that is still struggling with freedom. He reminds me that buying a cup of coffee, even a tall one at near $5 is a privelege.

So, I’m going to go close my eyes now, and spend a moment in gratitude. Another thing that James reminds me to do.
