Coffee Date

Hi friends.
If we were to go on a coffee date today, you would see me chug a coffee in 2 seconds flat and then order a second. I'd ask you not to judge and tell you it has just been a long week.


Once that was taken care of I would tell you that today we are sending out all of our foster care paper work. For reals this time.

I would tell you how we had some hang ups with our doctors office and the DMV. I may even tell you that at times, I thought this just wasn't going to happen. That I thought maybe I had heard God wrong. Maybe it was a mistake, that we weren't called to this.

After that was off my chest, I would tell you how God gave me a peace about this. How He brought me to the realization that those hang ups weren't to cause stress but were needed. That maybe, just maybe, the child that is supposed to be in our home just wasn't ready yet.

I would tell you how I have a peace knowing that God is orchestrating a perfect plan. He is making a path for us to follow. It may have ups and downs but it is all part of the journey that we are on.

Next topic of conversation would probably be our homeschool plan. I would tell you about how I finished up Rhiannon's calendar and have even started adding in some field trips. How I am starting to stress out a little. That I'm not sure that I am cut out for this and am a little afraid of messing her all up. How I am freaking out a little about school hours with me being a part time working mom. How I don't know what I am going to do. I may wig out a little. Just tell me it will be okay. I can pull it together rather quickly.

After I was so selfish to talk about myself for so long, I would apologize and ask what has been going on with you. I'd love to hear what is happening on your end. Please, share.
