Don’t you worry.
I’m not going to brush off all the wonders of fall flavors by shoving spiced coffee in your face.
There’s some baked apple goodness coming your way in a couple of days, and I will shove that in your face, but this. . . .
This coffee thing just happened yesterday.
Coffee grounds and spices stirred together pre-percolation.
Half and Half poured into the carafe so it heats as the coffee brews, and that hot spicy drip dribbles right down into the warming cream.
There you have it.
Pumpkin pie spiced coffee that rivals Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts for a fraction of the price.
I may or may not have added a dollop of frozen Cool Whip.
And don’t even try to pretend you don’t have Cool Whip in your freezer.
I know you do.
And if you don’t, you should – precisely for situations just like these.
For coffee situations.
But really, coffee wasn’t even what I had originally intended to tell you about today, it just sort of happened.
This is what I really wanted to show you:
Isn’t it perfect?
I thought you’d think so.
Wouldn’t we all be lucky if that was the mission of our kids’ schools?
Your future is yours. Each day is a gift. Your choices are going to make it what it is. Choose to use today wisely.
I want to remember this every day with my kids, and I thought you might want to too.

It’s a nice little size – for a bookmark, or a post-it, the dashboard of your car,or the bathroom mirror.
Today is yours. Make it the best you can, because this is that last time you’ll ever see it.
