A Thankful Heart: New Life & Coffee Dates in Red Cups

Today, I had the blessing of making house visits and visiting special people in my life.

First, I spent the morning with my special friend at home on bedrest.
We celebrated her birthday with peppermint lattes and lots of girl talk on her comfy couches.
Sipping coffee, doing her dishes, sharing in her nursery room joy,
and talking about the future of children and the treasure of new life.
Laughing thinking back over the journey of life we have walked through together 
and how we ended up where we are now.
I loved every minute of our time together.
The Lord is molding her heart for the little one still growing inside her 
and I am so excited for her to get to experience being a mom. 
She's going to be amazing at it.

Then I visited my little buddy Adrian and his mommy Nicole.
I used to have the privilege of watching him grow up every day.
Now I get to jump in for snippets every once in awhile.
It was so fun to watch this little 2 1/2 year old jump around, dance, laugh, ask for tickles, and tell me all the words he knows. And it was so special to catch up with his mommy and hear about the family and wedding plans and silly kid stories and yummy dinner ideas.
All over white peppermint mocha frappuccinos.

There's something about sharing coffee with friends that creates a bond.
Especially on day one of red cups.

It is so exciting to think about the future, to share dreams with each other, to laugh,
to plan and then say - Lord take my plan.

Today, I am thankful for new life. 
And getting to see and share in it over red coffee cups.
