A Christmas Message to the Parents of the World

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 12/23/2016

As children around the world go to bed this Christmas Eve they leave cookies and cocoa for Santa as a treat for him, who, they hope, will, sometime during the night, fill their stocking and leave presents galore. These cookies and cocoa, most likely prepared by their parents, are a symbol of hope that Santa’s presents will bring happiness and joy to their child the next morning.

For the children of the world this gesture of treats for Santa defines the magical moment that only Christmas Eve can manifest. That moment in time that we as parents wish could be frozen-a time when the world is at peace; a time of tranquility felt by our fellow human beings as God’s stewards of his earth and that time when “Goodwill Towards Men” surfaces to the forefront of humanity.

“Whose gifts are these?” my daughter Kimberly asked as she held up four flavored collection boxes of Kemosabe gourmet coffee.

“There stocking stuffers,” I replied while I was reaching for the wrapping paper.

One’s for your grandmother, one is for Uncle Craig, one is for Aunt Caroline and the last one is my co-worker, Lester.”

“What a wonderful idea,” Kimberly commented. Holding one of the boxes Kimberly began to read, “mocha, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate hazelnut, crème butterscotch, french vanilla and chocolate irish cream. What great flavors. This sounds delicious. And you get two envelopes of each flavor. What a great gift, Mom.”

“Yeah, I thought so,” I happily replied. “I know they all love gourmet coffee, so I,”

Interrupting, Kimberly announced, “But grandma has a gluten condition!”

That guy seemed to be everywhere I tried to run today,” Paul added referring to him being the team’s running back and was tackled often by the opposing team’s linebacker.

“Awesome is not the word for that guy! I proclaimed. He’ll be in the NFL someday,” I answered. “But the fact of the matter is we won and next week we’re playing for the state championship.”

“Hopefully, the weather will be a little more cooperative,” Paul stated. “Man, it was raw out there today. That wind got to me midway through the third quarter.”

Ask any parent and they will tell you they have forever etched in their mind fond memories of their children opening their presents on Christmas morning. One such memory is of my daughter, Karen, when she was four. Five days before Christmas she was given the cutest little stuffed teddy bear, wearing a red and white Santa hat. She named the bear, Jonathan. For the next four days Karen took Jonathan everywhere she went-to Sunday school, the movies, play house and even helped Mom make Christmas cookies.

“No, Ash, the only things I have yet to get are a few stocking stuffers for the kids, wrapping paper and boxes-you know the stores are too cheap to give you a box with your purchase so now you have to buy them.”

“Why don’t we meet up tomorrow around 11 AM and complete our lists?” I suggested to Ashley. “Like you, I have only a few things left to get for my daughters, so we should be able to get everything done by late afternoon. Besides I need to get out of this house and feel the Christmas spirit of the downtown decorations, lights and excitement.”

Under The Mistletoe-KEMOSABE Gourmet Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 12/2/2016

Normally people in love kiss under the mistletoe, however, while my story is one of romance it does not relate to me kissing under the mistletoe, at least not for now.

It all started the Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend when Julie, a new employee, and I first noticed each other walking into the company cafeteria. “Sparks flew” as they say. Since our first encounter we have been “eyeing” each other at every occasion. Today, as I was leaving the break room with a container of Kemosabe chocolate cinnamon gourmet flavored coffee I literally bumped into Julie who was walking towards me with her head turned backwards towards an elderly man giving her instructions. After we bumped into each other we looked up and noticed that we were standing under a mistletoe suspended from the ceiling.
