Lunch with friends
This past week I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go to lunch with friends on two seperate occasions. This is quite a big deal for me. Juggling my few roles does not allow me a lot of extra free time, so this was a real treat. I'm sure many of you can relate to this.
The first lunch date was with Janet the mom of the friends that we went bowling with a couple of weeks ago. We try to get together every few months for some mom time and to catch up. It was a chilly afternoon but I warmed up with a cup of tea and some delicous spilt pea soup at California Pizza Kitchen with her.
The next day my sister Susie and I went to meet our dear friend Mary that we had not seen for 20 years or so. We got to know each other growing up in youth group at church. We did a lot together as kids. It was fun reminiscing about mission trips, youth conferences, camping, crushes, and all the silly things we did as teenagers. We talked and laughed for hours. Five hours later I came home to my sweet little family.
I'm smiling, thinking about all of my dear friends! I need to make more time for lunch dates...they are good for my soul.
I gotta run...someone wants to cuddle and is requesting that I ready Jimmy Zangwow's Out of this World Moon Pie Adventure.
