Tuesdays With Kris and Kaydi

Tuesday night  in Saint Paul, Minnesota from 2001 until 2007  meant coffee with half and half, and prayer with Kris and Kaydi. We talked about our week and then we  prayed for each other. They prayed me through two miscarriages and the birth of my youngest daughter.  Kris and Kaydi had been meeting for several years when I moved into the neighborhood. I am grateful they asked me to join them.

Tuesday night at seven meet Kris and Kaydi.

The Allied Moving van took us to California from Minnesota  in 2007. We lived there for three years until the Allied Moving Van took us to Pennsylvania.

Sometimes on a Tuesday night in Pennsylvania I will get a funny feeling in my internal clock and feel like I am supposed to be somewhere. I start to feel like I am late for an important appointment around 7:10 , and then I remember Kris and Kaydi.

Kris is visiting us in Pennsylvania this weekend with her family.   I had the coffee pot ready for her on the kitchen counter. The ground coffee was a House Blend with a rick aroma & well-rounded body with walnut and chocolate tones. A half-gallon of half and half was waiting in the fridge.  I checked the date on the half and half at the grocery store, and took one from the back of the fridge.  I don’t drink coffee anymore, but I was ready for Kris.

Kris and her family are driving  back to Minnesota this morning. After they drive away, I will put the coffee pot back under the kitchen counter. I will put the House Blend ground coffee with a rick aroma & well-rounded body with walnut and chocolate tones in the freezer. I will use  the half and half in a chicken pot pie I will make later this week.

Tomorrow is Tuesday. Tomorrow night while I watch my youngest play softball, I will remember Kris and Kaydi, and I will pray for them.

  1. How special that your friend Kris could visit – obviously it isn’t just the coffee and half-n-half that nurture your time together. I have a little group like this – we call ourselves “Puffs” – for all kinds of reasons. We meet on Tuesdays too – at least for now….

    What a sweet post! I miss you and Kaydi on Tuesdays as well. I have not been able tor replace the week in, week out, day to day presence we had in each other’s lives. It was wonderful to see you and connect again. What a treat! Thanks for writing this and reminding me of the very special time God gave me for those years and the joy of continued friendship. Love you!
