Oh friend, I wish you knew how badly I wish I could really sit down with you and drink a cup of coffee. I need some quality, face to face time, disconnected from the world and from our phones and from responsibility. Some weeks are all rainbows and fall leaves, others weigh a little heavier on my heart. This week is the latter, and I need an escape.
If we were having coffee, I'd tell you how glad I am that it's Friday. I'm actually off this weekend, which is a rarity for a nurse, and I'll be celebrating the wedding of one of my best friends! It's bound to be a weekend full of joy and lots of fun.
If we were having coffee, I'd probably wax poetic about our back porch and how I think it has magical powers. There's just something about that spot...it's surrounded by trees turning all the colors of fall, there's no time obligations, and all we do is just enjoy each other. It's just the kind of place I need after a long week.
If we were having coffee, I'd probably ask you what kind of Bible you have. I've been on a mission to find a new translation lately. There are so many options out there, I just had no idea! I'm torn between an ESV study Bible and a journaling Bible, so I may just get both.
If we were having coffee, you'd probably hear how crappy my day was yesterday. You know those days...where every stop light is red, everyone pulls out in front of you, and nothing seems to go right? Yep, that kind of day. I couldn't even pinpoint a one thing if I had to; it was just overall crummy, but it was nothing that a glass of wine and Gilmore Girls couldn't fix.
If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I was nervous to give a toast to my best friend at her rehearsal dinner tonight. I have so many good things that I want to tell her about marriage, and so many funny memories that I'd love to share, that I'll probably get tongue-tied and cry and end it quicker than I started.
If we were having coffee, you would probably be able to tell that there's a lot on my mind lately. I'm just preoccupied--my mind is always wandering and thinking and dreaming. Something is stirring within me; it's hard to describe it just yet. God's working in me and on me and while I'm so thankful for His hand in my life, but I'm anxious to see where He's leading me. I'm praying that some of these feelings come out onto paper soon so I can share them with you.
If we were having coffee, I'd probably try to convince you to get another cup just so we could keep talking. Coffee dates are good for the soul, don't you think? What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
Happy Friday, loves! Xoxo
