I am thankful for Thursday mornings! They come early at our house as DH is usually out the door well before 7AM to get to a 7:15 meeting each week. I am usually awake and this summer have made it a habit to head to Panera for some Mommy time! It has been wonderful! I take my laptop, order breakfast and make myself an iced coffee (Hazelnut of course!). Then I settle into my seat and enjoy the morning!
I have met interesting people this summer with this weekly ritual. I run into friends. My DH usually joins me when his meeting is over and we have a few minutes in the middle of the day to touch base.
Meanwhile, I have checked in with FB, Twitter, Google+ and read the blog updates which I find in my google reader. I check the news but not my email. I find it so relaxing to be there. Who would have thought that early Thursday morning would become such a treasured time. It will come to a screeching halt when school rolls around. Hopefully, I will be able to go still, just a little later after dropping off all the kiddos.
But for now, I as so thankful for Thursday mornings and this new ritual.
