my morning pick-me-up

Some people drink coffee.
Others drink diet coke.
Some folks watch Good Morning America.
Some read their devotions.
Here's my morning pick-me-up.
I don't know which I love more - the fact that Abi's teacher is one of my dearest friends or that one of my dearest friends is Abi's teacher.

I get to spend time with these 2 fabulous friends every weekday morning at school.  Jody is Abi's 2nd grade teacher and Amy is a 1st grade teacher.  We chat, encourage each other and fill one another's love tanks.
Sometimes we laugh and other times we cry.  But I always feel better when I leave than when I walked in the door.

One day, this sweet little thang joined Amy and I.  We had so much fun I was almost late for work - yikes!

This is my morning crew.  We're totally doing life together.  Raising our kids together and encouraging each other to be better moms, wives, friends and Godly women.

I never thought I would say this but I don't want school to end this year.
What will I do this summer?

Abi knows this is part of our morning routine.  She loves it too.
Tomorrow morning is donuts with dad at school so daddy will take Abi to school.
Abi asked Mrs. Childs if mommy could come too since she knows how important our ritual is.  I think Abi likes mommy better after she's had her morning pick-me-up.
I guess tomorrow morning may be a good test for summer.  or maybe not. 
I think I'll go for my morning pick-me-up after donuts :)

Ok. Let's make plans now to get together over the summer. Coffee at my house! I've also got a super fantastic spinach quiche. Am I convincing you?? Jodi and Amy come too!

Oh, and I can't believe you stole my FB profile pic! Ha!

Amy said...

Yes, yes! I LOVE Gina's idea!! Darn you, Danielle for having to work during the summer. :) We must figure out a plan, though. I love our morning chats and I LOVE doing life with you! All 3 of you!!

I am so jealous of your morning routine.

I spend mine with Good Morning America and a cup of coffee. But your's is better.

You had me at spinach quiche.
I love your morning pick-me-ups. I will miss you so much next year!
