But that's not the end of the story.
When I got to the elevator bank, I saw another attorney, let's call him Attorney Tom, trying to get in the building from the back door. That entrance is for tenants only and requires a magnetic key card (I usually skip this door and take the longer route to the front of the building). I heard the beep of Attorney Tom's key card and thought nothing of it. However, just as the elevators doors opened for me to step inside, I heard Attorney Tom's key card beep again. It was beeping, but it wasn't unlocking the door for him to enter. I walked the 20 steps or so to the back door and opened it up for a very cold and very grateful Attorney Tom. If I hadn't forgotten my coffee and retraced my steps out to my car, Attorney Tom would have been waiting a while in the cold for someone to open the door, or he would have had to walk all the way around the building to get in through the front entrance. I don't believe this morning's events were a coincidence. I believe it was God saying, "See? I told you working on being content and happy would have its rewards." It put a smile on my face anyway :)
