If we met for coffee… I would be desperately wishing that I drank coffee. Everyone in the world seems to survive on coffee, and I don’t drink coffee so sometimes I feel like I am not surviving. Tea is amazing and definitely helps soothe my emotional state but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t perk me up like coffee would. But alas.
If we met for coffee… I would ask how you are, and I would expect you to say a whole lot more than just fine. Because fine doesn’t mean anything. I would listen, really listen. I would sip my tea and shut my mouth, and just be all ears whilst you told me about your week, your sleepless nights, your fun celebrations, how proud you are of your children, how you are working on your marriage, the exciting new promotion you just got and how you have made your 2018 goals a priority. I would help to cheer you on or be there to offer your tissues if you were down.
If we met for coffee… I would cry. 100% tears rolling down my cheeks. It’s been one of those weeks – an extreme rollercoaster of emotions. And I definitely wouldn’t be able to hold it together. And a good cry can make the world of difference – every day might be a bit much though!
If we met for coffee… I would tell you that parenting can be heartbreaking and gut wrenching. I would tell you that watching your baby girl cry every morning when you drop her at school because she cannot cope with the change, she isn’t sure of her new class, new teacher and new surroundings and how her little soul is trying to hard to be brave. I would tell you that I put on a brave face but when I leave, I completely crumble and I feel like I have fed her to the wolves. I would tell you that it has taken a whole lot of patience, understanding and the best extra cuddles to get us both through this week.
If we met for coffee… I would pray for you and over you for the day, month and year ahead. Because we all need prayers.
What would you share with me, if we met for coffee.
Happy Friday x
