As we recently mentioned, we found ourselves drawn to two additional entries in our Procovery Guest Blogger contest and while we were planning for just one winner, during the review process, we felt the need to create Honorable Mention spots on our blog to shine a spotlight on some inspiring individuals who shared so deeply with us. This week’s Honorable Mention is Mary Catherine Booth of St. Louis, Missouri! Mary has dedicated the following poem to Procovery Circle Facilitator Millie Fortune-Gilpin, also of St. Louis, Missouri.

A cup of Procovery shared with friends is….
Happiness and Hope… tasted!
Time well spent
If you’ll excuse me I’m going to have another cup of Procovery
I have measured out my life with Procovery spoons
A cup of Procovery one sip at a time
Nothing like a good cup of Procovery in the morning
Makes me want to get up
Awakens me makes me feel good and ready
Hopeful for the day to come
Nothing can really be said after the first sip
but a quiet utter of “mmmmmm”
A cup of Procovery today
It’s awesome to smell the hope would yah?
Procovery it is a food group
My favorite kind of bean (being)
It’s not a beverage
It’s a moment of pleasure and looking forward
My Cup of PROCOVERY
An aroma that fills the room with warming
Steady of hope
Friends to gather
Bonded by each cup
The tenderness of solitude
With a good Procovery book
As I take the first sip
Of the first cup
I drink up
And share the hope of Procovery
Coming from a slurp of clarity
I realize again that I am blessed to share this cup with such a friend.
Best mixed with friendship and simple conversation
Warmed with compassion
A few drips of Procovery
It’s amazing what it can do
Smiling, laughing, relaxing, knowing, believing, remembering
And most important of all FEELING.
I went to perk a pot of Procovery and it perked up my life
Procovery much more than a flavor, roast, or aroma
It’s a way of life.
To share this cup with such a friend…. is life itself.
I need my cup of Procovery to set me free
And awaken me once again.
