Coffee Anyone?


Maybe I'm in one of those... daydreamer moods but I wish wish wish that we all lived near one another and I would invite you over for coffee (I make it REALLY strong but always have half and half on hand) and would serve you special sugary treats. We would chat about some light things at first, setting the stage for really getting to know one another...

Some of us on couches, others on chairs. All of our kids would be in a safe and fun place, far far away and that would be good because it's 'mommy time'. We could just focus on prayer needs and getting to know one another. I'd throw on some good back ground music and we'd all wear eye liner because the event would be that special. Maybe we'd even have a book club... okay... This is definitely a fantasy now. But all of that to say that I wish that we knew one another better.

I got a call later this morning from IBSEN and they (I love you Anne!) wanted to know if I would be willing to share our story at this years auction. I'm flattered and have butterflies already brewing. Last year I got to attend the event and there were at least 1500 people there... at least. And I ALWAYS cry like the big weeny that I am whenever I tell God stories. I wonder if they know what they got themselves into!?!

that made me teary just thinking about you speaking! How awesome! I wish I could come over for coffee right now, and we could eat cookies while the kids all took turns trying to get Jonas to sit still in their laps :)

Okay, I thought I was the only one who wanted to live closer to some of my blogging friends. I would just love to come over for tea and enroll my kids in your daycare. LOL!

I checked out your other blog and love your story. I would love to sit and listen to how God has worked in and through you and your family.
