Breakfast at the Coffee House

Monday, February 18, 2013

Well, I am back from a tremendous week with the Rhodens!  It was such a fun time.  I really needed a break from everything that's going on here; so an entire week by myself with some very dear friends was a wonderful opportunity.  Each day was spent laughing, talking, sharing, and just deepening existing relationships.  It was a true blessing for me.

One morning while I was there, some friends of the Rhodens (whom we met last time we visisted) invited Cassie and me for breakfast at their family's coffee shop.  It was such a lovely morning!  We met at 8:00 and stayed until 11:00.  Long time? Yes.  Great time? YES. :-)  I had an iced mocha latte, and we all split several pastries.....chocolate cherry scones, berry muffins, croissants, etc.  Mmmmmm.

Hannah, Emily, and Cassie.  I love these girls.  We spent so many hours sharing and talking about "girl things".  Really fun.

I love those kinds of conversations that just go on for hours and hours, and no one wants to stop.  It was really neat to share what's going on in our lives...the good and the bad....different challenges we're facing, and all the funny stuff in between. These girls were such an encouragement to me.

 Who here thinks it would be totally awesome for your family to own a coffee shop?  :-)  I'm sure it's one of those things that doesn't seem that amazing if you have it....but to an "outsider" it seems pretty ideal!

It was a true pleasure to get to know Hannah and Emily better this time.  Warm coffee, yummy pastries, encouraging conversation, "sharpening" each other in Christ.....the works.  What a great morning.
