Solace in a Cup

Reward is filthy with possibility: it could be your third grader’s beaming smile after reading her first chapter book, a steaming mug of chicken soup after a long run in the cold, a photo of your brand-new baby — your reward for patience during nine months of construction, or your extended family gathered around the dinner table. “

A good (better if it’s great) cup of coffee in the wee hours of the morning, before dawn, before the part of the world you’re currently in wakes up. That’s good enough reward for me for simply being, at least for today.
