At the beginning of the school year us moms were chatting and decided to try to get together for coffee. Glad that our kids had gone back to school, we decided to treat ourselves.

That random treat has turned into my weekly therapy session!

Confession: I don't always buy coffee. HD grinds and brews a full pot every morning so there is usually more than enough for me to take my own. Instead of coffee I usually buy a granola/yogurt parfait, so yes, they still get my money. Sometimes.

We typically meet on Wednesday morning at 8:30, or more accurately 8:40. (We're not known for being punctual. Ahem.) What's 10 minutes among friends, right?

Over the 8 months that we've been meeting, we have discussed everything from kids, to husbands, the school, discipline, food, jewelery, and more.

It's usually just the 3 of us but we're not exclusive. Others try to meet us from time to time, and some stop to join in our chats. Husbands are welcome but only for a moment! This is our time, girl time, friend time.

I mentioned this in my ABC's post but it's true. In all of the years that I've lived here (almost 15!) this is the first group of pals that I've had locally and it feels really, really good. Yes, I've had other friends, and I know dozens of people, but having real friends is truly priceless.

Or, you know, worth a good cup of coffee.

So happy you have them. It sounds like a perfect way to spend a Wednesday morning!

This is so important, I have a Thursday morning bible study group that is "it" for me. We always start late, we get often "off topic", but I have learned so much about my faith, parenting, and just being a friend.
