Well if you have dropped in to read in my blog often you will know by now that I love Coffee.
I especially like a good cappuccino and preferably one that does not cost as much as a lunch!!!
I love to sit at home or in a coffee shop with a nice atmosphere and sip my coffee.
Have you ever thought of offering someone a coffee in your home?
Have you ever invited someone to have a coffee with you in a nice coffee shop?
Have you ever bought a coffee for someone you don't know?
Possibly the answer to that last one is a no.
Well you can make that a YES by finding a coffee shop or cafe which offer the great service of a Suspended Coffee.
This is where you get the privilege of paying for a coffee which can be enjoyed later by someone who can't afford one but would appreciate the hot drink.
If you are around Belfast, Northern Ireland, drop into Common Grounds on University Avenue and you can do just that. On the board behind the counter you will see notes of pre-paid coffees waiting for someone to take up the opportunity.
Often you will also see the note of a pre-paid sandwich or bowl of soup too because people are willing to offer food for others who may be hungry.

Now if you do get to visit Common Grounds you can also have some lunch, buy bags of coffee to take home to make for yourself, have a smile on your face while you drink their great cappuccinos (I know I always do) and enjoy your coffee even better with one of their delicious cinnamon scones.
At this point I have to say that I am NOT in any way reimbursed for my comments here.
I do however need to add that I know about this cafe and the friendly staff there because my son is the manager and I can truthfully tell you that yesterday, on the way back from our few days away at the North Coast, Fred and I spent an enjoyable couple of hours there.
It is a Fair Trade cafe and the profits go to charity so now you have even more reasons to go check it out.
And don't forget how you could make someone's day by being kind enough to leave them a Suspended Coffee, or Tea, or bowl of soup.....
Of course if you check out the facebook page that explains about the suspended coffees you will find many other places where you can be just as generous and leave a treat for someone.
think of others,
pray for others
and help others;
it does not state they always have to be people we know.
We just need to have a generous, caring heart.
I think we all might enjoy our coffee better when we are sharing with others.
How about you?
