This morning I went and had a cup of coffee with a dear, sweet friend. A two-hour cup of coffee, even! This wasn't just any friend; this was my friend I met through blogging, back in April when we were getting ready to move. If you don't know (or remember) the story, then go read it real quick - it's an amazing one! We promised each other back then that we would get together for coffee or tea, and between our moving and her busy life, we just now got around to it.
As soon as we met, we both started talking, and it was pretty much non-stop chatting for the next two hours! LOL Wes is still amazed that I can meet someone that is (almost) a total stranger to me and spend two hours talking to her. You have to be a talker to understand that instant connection, I guess. We found that we have so many things in common, from books to decorating to thrifting to old things that belonged to our grandmothers to guys who love computer games. What a wonderful gift the Lord gives us in friends, even in those we've only known for a little while! I kinda feel like this blogging thing might be worthwhile, if it brings a new friend and is a blessing to someone else. I sure enjoyed my morning coffee today! Thanks for meeting with me today, M . . . and the best part? We plan to get together more often in the coming weeks!
