2 coffees down and maybe 5 to go.....

As I stated in an earlier blog, I was given a Starbucks Gift Card for my birthday. As I'm not to well knowledgeable in Starbucks, I ask for suggestions. Unfortunately, I only received one suggestion. Fortunately for the one making the suggestion, there was a free home delivery of a Carmel Mocha Decaf Latte! I made the delivery this morning on my way to work.
I chose to have a Peppermint Mocha Latte and enjoyed it very much. In fact, I made the coffee last almost all day. Yes, it had lost it's warmth, but not it's flavor. What started out as a hot coffee, ended up being an almost ice coffee. Like Maxwell House coffee, it was good to the last drop.

And the person I thank for my Starbuck's card is..........

My Starbuck's Coffee Card & Birthday card came son, Eric. He had planned to come home for my birthday, but called to let me know that he would not be able to make it. It's a good thing that he called, as I was in Kansas City, Missouri, at The International House of Prayer, to attend their Passion for Jesus conference. Eric was certainly glad I answered my phone and let him now I wasn't home. Yes, I did tell him I was going out of town, but he forgot.

Which seems to be a little problem, as he forgot to sign the card. That's ok, at least I know who sent the card and I'll certainly enjoy the coffee. As I am really haven't been to Starbucks much, any suggestions as to what to get? Eric was very generous.

Thanks Eric!

Who do I thank?????

Imagine my suprise when the UPS man knocked on my door after leaving a large envelope. The envelope was marked 2 day delivery and addressed to me. I opened the delivery envelope to find a card size envelope inside. This is the card that was inside the card envelope.
If you can't read the inside texts "I know we couldn't be together for your birthday, but I did not forget...HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!! There was a nice Starbucks gift card inside.
I've written all this to say that the card was not signed. Therefore, who do I thank????? I appericate the gift and card and being thought of, but I'd like to know who to thank. Therefore, I sincerely hope that you let me know who you are. If you wish to remain unknown, then I respect your wish and will just say "Thank you very much!" I will remember that I was thought as I enjoy each cup of coffee.
