Surprise breakfast dates

Today is a day to be very thankful for good friends!  Aren’t friends the only thing to be thankful about? 

This morning when I was doing a morning devotional at 8AM [my Lenten sacrifice was daytime TV to give me more time to engage in reading God’s word; just not having the sound of the TV in the background just makes me feel more productive, maybe I’ll actually reach my goal of reading 18 books this year!]  I got a phone call from my good friend Lisa, asking if I was up and if I’d likewp-1489097228302.jpg to go to breakfast, and I never like to miss out on a social excursion.  Besides, breakfast is the most fabulous meal of the day! We go to First Watch with her two little guys that I babysit,
since we were up in that area, we stop by our favorite grocery store, Trader Joe’s where I run into my former neighbor from when we were living in Fairfax.  We got to catch up, share some good hugs and inquire about loved ones; I was very sad to learn that his wife has a very health condition.  The boys got their stickers and lollipops for behaving in the store.
Next stop, on the way to Starbucks with my good friend Melissa to work on our respective writing projects, where we bump into my yoga teacher, Amy!  Any good yoga teacher exudes a calming zen-like aura, that seems to linger the rest of the day.  Such a small world, I love knowing people and bumping into old friends- I’ve already had a full day, and it was only 1030 in the morning!  When I return home, I need to get dinner ready and enjoy with my FABULOUS husband, and then get to catch up on gossip at another coffeehouse with my crocheting friends!
