Chats Over Coffee

Friends are very important in our lives; each one of them bringing a different perspective from their own walks of life.  If we allow ourselves to be open-minded and listen to what they are saying, we can learn something truly beautiful.

Sunday afternoon I was in Bricktown sitting at Starbucks waiting to meet a friend.  While I was waiting, I started talking with a family made up of a: mom, dad, and a little girl.  The mom (who is an OSU graduate) is an avid blog reader; she said she reads her favorites daily.  She also knew where Pawhuska is and knew a few people from there because she worked with them during college.  The little girl being the birthday princess who might have been the most darling five-year-old I have ever seen.  Also, her favorite princess was Belle; she was like my tiny human soul mate (in a non-creepy way of course).  She was meeting with her aunt and uncle to receive her birthday present.  Then off they went to the movies, to watch Puss in Boots.  What a small world, something as tiny as a friendly conversation with a stranger, can put such a smile on your face.  I love meeting new people, especially when they have ties to OSU.  It's amazing how that bond can bring people together.

Shortly after my chat with my new friends, I found myself on the phone with my dear friend, Olivia.  She was on her way, and we were giggling on the phone while I was trying to give her directions.  For those of you who know me, you can understand what kind of struggle that truly was.  After a: turn left, no--turn right, and a simple u-turn we were reunited at last!

Please note the spelling of her yeah

We caught up on each other’s lives, telling one another the good, bad, and the ugly.  However, I must say there is hardly any drama in our lives.  Who would have thought that removing certain things from our lives would bring us each so much happiness?  That to me is a constant reminder that no one should ever settle for anything less than their ideal version of perfect.  I am so proud of each and every one of my friends; we are growing into such beautiful, mature, adults.
