This morning I am getting ready for Tuesday morning coffee. This tradition began ten years ago when our kids graduated from preschool and began kindergarten . A group of moms decided to meet for coffee once a week on Tuesdays after we dropped the kids off at school. Initially the Tuesday coffee group focused on just getting used to the dynamics of our elementary school and the local activities that were going on in the neighborhood. As the years and Tuesdays passed , the group weathered divorces, deaths, 9-11, middle school, drugs, and hurricanes. 10 years of Tuesdays have passed as our kids are now sophomores in High School. I wouldnt say this a CLIQUE as we all have other friends that we play with during the week and most of the time we dont get together outside of coffee on Tuesdays. I have learned and laughed so much with this group of women; with our topics ranging from finding snake stories, to choosing a family counselor, and treating foot fungus with Vicks vapor-rub. The power of women is phenomenal ... I love my Tuesday morning sister-friends as well as all of my new blog sister-friends. Thanks to Corey, Jana, Chasity, and Capello for encouraging me during this last week I so appreciate you reaching thru the computer screen to give me a bloggy hug.
