Coffee with a Friend

Had coffee with a friend yesterday. We have known each other as far back as we can remember, and then some. We talked about a friend who recently passed away. We talked about death, about life, about God, about our lives. We sat with our coffee and we talked about a lot of things.

The widow of a childhood friend of ours stopped by our table. It was her wedding anniversary. We talked for a moment, then she went on her way. We always try and make her smile when we see her. We told her about our new exercise program…we watch exercises on tape and we really think it’s helping…and if we really want to raise our heart rate, we fast forward the tape. It really works. Well, one thing worked for sure…she smiled.

We don’t have all the answers…we don’t even know all the questions, but we can spend some time together having coffee and talking about our hopes and dreams, even our concerns down the road. We’re just two 70 something kids who happened to grow up together…meeting for a cup of coffee and mostly, some time to remember.
