Coffee Date

Please come over for coffee this morning.  I promise I won’t clean the house, and I’ll even keep my pj’s on.  How special!  Today I will need 2 cups of coffee.  I will explain to you that last night was a rough night with sick babies.  I’ll warn you that they are sick, so if you know what is best, you’ll stay away and not come, but since I begged you, maybe you’ll risk it.  😉

I’ll let you know that I am feeling ever-so-slightly better each and every day.  I’ll smile, but will still need to drink more coffee before I can REALLY smile.

I’ll ask to hear ALL about your life, because I would rather listen this morning than talk.

I’ll ask a ton of questions, so be prepared.  I want to know EVERYTHING.  I will be hoping for all good news from you, but I know that the reality is you might have been having some hard thing you’re dealing with, so I am ready to hear about those things and will pray for you.

I’ll share that we are still waiting to hear about our offer on the house.  I am finding peace in the waiting.

I’ll share that Capri is the sickest and that my ‘all-natural’ approach to letting her body fight away germs is actually easier than it seems.  I’ll share that I secretly worry that her heart may play a factor in getting sick.  But then I’ll share that its just my over-worrisome-mommy mind and that she is so healthy that I shouldn’t concern myself for the couple of days she does get sick.

I’ll insist you have a second cup of coffee because, well, I made enough.  We’ll talk and catch up but keep it short this morning, because I have to get back to caring for the girls, and you don’t want to stick around and test your immune system too much.  We’ll finish with talking about the weather, light and fluffy talk.  We’ll laugh.  When its time to go, I’ll walk you outside and hug you tight.  I’ll thank you for driving all the way out to the boonies to see me, and we’ll say something to the effect of, ‘same time next week?’.  But we both know thats not going to happen so we smile and chuckle.  We are okay with that, our friendship is solid and we are thankful for this morning together.
