a coffee date


I thought it might be nice to have a coffee date together.  Except that I don’t like coffee, so I’ll probably be drinking hot chocolate, or a frappuccino.

If we met at a coffee shop, I’d ask you how you are doing. And not accept “good” as an answer.  I’d want to know how you are – really.  What are you looking forward to?  What are you worried about?  Are you satisfied with who you are and where you’re at in life?

Actually, if I’m being honest, I would probably show you my most recent of pictures of Poesy first!  Then, I’d definitely ask about your life.

Then I’d probably share with you some of the most recent happenings in my life – attending my cousin’s beautiful wedding at the beginning of the month, getting through semester exams at school, taking a fun and relaxing road trip to Austin with my in-laws, and enjoying some much-needed down time with my husband and parents.

I might talk about the things I’m excited about in the near future – my grandparents coming into town to visit, some cool opportunities at work for Tanner and I, and more dog park adventures with Poesy.

I’m sure I would share some of my hopes and dreams with you – getting to visit my brother in California in March, reaching out to some of my students who I know are hurting, figuring out more of God’s plan for me this year.

Then I’d thank you for taking the time to get together, and tell you how much I’ll look forward to seeing you again soon.

What would you share on our coffee date?
