If we were to get coffee

Several of my friends have posted blogs about what we (and by we I mean this lovely cyber community of blogger) would do if we went to coffee together.  I thought that sounded like SO much fun seeing as how I wish I could get coffee with everyone I "meet" through this cyber land of the WWW.

So here we go, 

If we were to have coffee together...

I would be SO happy we could find a time that works with our schedules, I feel like life is SO busy, that finding time for just a simple cup of coffee with a friend is so hard, why is that?

We would probably then move to talking about the craziness of life, we would talk about time, work, family, blah blah blah, maybe throw in the weather, because if you live close to me you know we've had a HOT few days together. 

We'd probably comment on why I'm drinking a hot drink on such a hot day, but for some reason I just can't drink iced coffee drinks, call me crazy, but even in 108 degree temps I'll be sipping on a  hot one.

I'd tell you I can't WAIT for fall to come, summer is such a busy time for us. An incredibly fun time filled with lots of hangout time with highschoolers, but a busy time. 

Then, I'd probably talk to you about my problem of looking to the new big thing (i.e., fall) and how I'm working on living in the now, which some days goes awesome, others, eh, not so well.

I'd probably share with you that after watching my husband at VBS this last week, I can't wait to see him as a dad. He's going to be such a good dad.

Then I'd probably rattle on and on to you about our adoption and how excited I am to hold our baby. 

I'd tell you how incredibly blessed we've been in the process, then I might tear up 

Because I think adoption hormones are real and the most random things make me tear up

I'd look at my phone and gasp that I've been talking and talking and haven't heard how you're doing

So, you'd tell me what's going on, we'd laugh about the funny moments, get angry at the bad ones, and maybe cry a bit. 

We'd probably talk about our plans to change the world, then we'd remind ourselves that's Jesus' job and we're just here to help with the plan, so we'd talk and talk about how we can help. 

We'd share big dreams for our little city and our little world. 

We'd say we have to get together again soon, because our time was so refreshing

Then our phones would probably ring because we're on to the next thing in the day

We'd hug, and leave refreshed...

If we were to have coffee together.
