Love it

I love friends.
I enjoy their companionship, their laughter, their sorrow, their sharing, their love and much more.

So I started thinking, why don’t I create a social gathering place...so I can have some fun.  

I first rented a hall with min. funding
I set up tables, chairs and a pot of coffee
I started inviting family and friends first
I had the door opened.

They visited and said it was fun
Further asked to open for others
So I started to put up flyers
I started to market this place
with word of mouth and all my efforts and devotions
More to come from everywhere
India to China
England to Australia.

More coffee, more tables, more chairs
Now they want gourmet coffee
Creamers and Sugars
Plus Pastry
Rent still needs to be plumbed up
Not to mention the clean up
If anyone leaves with a mess
Though visitors help out
It still leave me to check
Every night at 2 am
I am to see if I need to further straighten up
The door is opened 24/7.
I tried to be at the door to greet everyone
I ignored my husband, my children
and I am doubting about my passion.

Then there are times I got ER calls,
There is flood in the hall
The bathroom is out of soap
There is a potential fight
Some intruders come in on board
There is an argument, disagreement
There is a sour puss
There is a raging one
There is someone who need a shelter
There is someone who is hungry and poor
There is someone ....
I got all calls!

I need to call the plumber
I need to call the landlord and is there really one???

Then I feel my pocket is diminishing
thought I have great fulfillment
when all visitors express their love and appreciations
vs some just stomp out
vs some just come and do not give a damn
vs some just receive with no giving
vs some give me hugs and said Well Done.

Then I started thinking of fees
Entrance fee? No, too cruel
So a fee on a cup of coffee just to help out a tit of a big burden
I see the royal love
however, some are doubting
some said I still like to come and no coffee for me
some said I could get free coffee elsewhere and why I need to come.
some said Bitch, it is just your ego and about business.

It leaves me with great astonishment....

I wonder why they can’t see where I am coming from?????
And when do I draw the line?????
