I wanted to break my addiction to creamer, so God gave me my most favorite car.
I tried a few things on my own (very nonchalantly.) One day I tried
abstaining all together, one day I tried a creamer I didn't like, one month I
tried homemade creamer. I never prayed about, I never even really worried about
it. I figured it would just work itself out.
And boy did it!
weeks ago, God gave me my most favorite car, a Mini Cooper!
One thing I
didn't know about an itty bitty European car is that the cup holders are itty bitty.
And in this particular itty bitty car, the cup holders are under all my
controls, so I needed a small footprint AND a short cup.
say, I didn't own a cup that matched those particular measurements. I'm an
American. We like super-sized cups filled to the brim. I like mine with some
coffee and a LOT of hazelnut creamer. ('Blond' doesn't even begin to describe
how much creamer I like.)
So, I kept trying to use my 20 oz Old Glory
Starbucks cup that I have had for over a decade. I tried holding it, but holding
a cup with a manual transmission in stop-and-go traffic just doesn't work. My
husband tried giving me a smaller cup, about 16 oz, but that didn't help. It actually made it worse, because it was too small to hold itself
up between the emergency brake and passenger seat.
I kept trying and
trying. I kept growling every time I realized my coffee was spilling all over
the carpet and the seat and the e-brake boot. I kept telling my husband I wasn't
going to take any more drinks into the car.
And then, God gave me the
perfect solution to help me with my creamer addiction. The most adorable itty
bitty 8 ounce cup that fits perfectly in my itty bitty cup holder. (And only holds about a teaspoon of creamer.)
