Coffee shop therapist


Among the blessings that have accompanied my 2011 hemorrhagic stroke are the many individuals who have showered me with prayers, assistance, encouragement, therapeutic exercise, conversation and laughter.

Anna is one of those blessings. She is day manager at Coffee Fusion, a regular stop several times a week for Husband Walter and me.

Her welcoming approach includes both newcomers and regulars. Along with other aging regulars, Hubby and I enjoy her gracious service infused with a mix of good-natured teasing and an awareness of and concern for our individual challenges.

Hats off to Anna!

I really like knowing people I don't know but see on a regular basis. she looks so sweet and kind. i love the greeter at Walmart, he is about 6'5'' and looks like Santa Claus, is the Sat/Sunday 6 am greeter and has been for years. he plays Santa at Christmas, i feel like he is a friend.

Don't you just love people like that?
A smile and caring can really perk us up.
We used to have a restaurant that seemed to treat everyone like family.
I do miss them since we moved .
Glad to see you posting again.

Some people carry a special light within. It's always healing to be in their presence.

It is a blessing that nice people will take time to interactsocially in an encouraging manner. As I age I find my grouchy side needs putting away by such lovely caring people like Anna.
