friday coffee date {praying for a friend}

Hi Friends

I can't believe it is already Friday. I feel like this last week again flew by. Just a bit over 2 weeks and I will be in Rhode Island. {Can you tell that I am excited to see my hubby?!}

If we were to have coffee this morning I would probably sit for about 15 minutes and ponder the thought of iced coffee or hot coffee. The weather has been so finicky lately I just can't seem to decide.

After deciding on my coffee of choice I would sip it and babble on about how excited I am to be able to have Dunkin Donuts coffee every day in a few short months. I would then quickly ramble on about how weird it is to think that in about 7 weeks we will have our house packed up and we will be on our to start our next chapter in our life, so strange. I am excited for the new adventure but I think I am still processing that we are in fact moving 2500 miles across the United States.

I would also share with you something that has been heavy on my heart. I have a friend who's niece is dealing with brain cancer. Just typing it makes me sad. This is her second battle with it. She was diagnosed once before and she was cancer free for a bit, but it recently came back and the doctors have said there is nothing left they can do. It breaks my heart to know that this little girl is being so brave and struggling with such a huge burden. My heart hurts for my friend and her family. To have to watch your baby girl go through such a horrible disease is something I cannot seem to wrap my head around. My friend has been so strong and positive through out all of this. She is a true testament of relying on your faith to get you through the difficult times. I pray for her family because the parents of the little girl are struggling to cope with reality that they will outlive their little girl. I pray that the Lord gives them the strength they need and that he draws them closer to him in this time of despair.

If you could take a few moments in the next few weeks and say a few prayer for my friend and her family I would be ever so grateful. You all are so amazing and encouraging, I know my friend would feel so blessed to have so many people praying for her family.
