coffee with Joy

today I had coffee with my sister

we tried a new place

it was an old converted industrial building with interior brick walls, sunlight everywhere and leather chairs around round wooden coffee tables

so often I think people only want to hear positive things

and there are so many good things that I am grateful for

we celebrated her kicking ass as a financial advisor

client after client coming her way

I think it’s because she’s authentic

we celebrated my going back for my degree

our parental victories

but there are some hard things

things that sit raw in our throats

it is quite a thing to be honest about those things with each other

and not be judged

Joy is always on my side

and I’m on her side

fiercely
