It is easy to be grateful if you have a grateful heart. I generally wake up happy and grateful. A friend once said to me he was grateful to be above ground another day every day.
This week I reconnected with a friend, who I have not seen for several years. I realized his business, he is a mortgage lender was right where we now live. So, I had reached out and we arranged to meet up at a coffee shop in Oxford I did not know about yet. So, I am grateful for discovering this really cool coffee shop Wholly Grounds, as it looks a great pace to get out of the house and sit somewhere comfortable with a snack and a coffee.
You can see they have a whole section of comfy chairs to enjoy and if you look closely there is a piano and guitar back there. My friend mentioned they sometimes have musicians playing, so I followed them on Instagram so I get the notifications.
The coffee was excellent, good flavour, and hot. I did not try any snacks as I had already eaten. But, my friend said their food was also good. One of the staff was getting married this weekend, so it felt like there was a connection as my wedding is just 14 days away.
I will definitely be back to explore Oxford a little more, there seemed to be lots of nice shops and it had a small town vibe. I am grateful for discovering somewhere new and having it so close to enjoy as well.
