The mug I’m sharing with you today is only a few years old. How many years? I’m not exactly sure, but it was purchased here in Texas upon the occasion of a visit from my bestie, Angel. We met in California where we raised our kids and grew in Christ together for almost ten years. Strangely enough, the Lord moved both our families out of California within months of each other, they went to Arkansas and we went to Texas.
That was over twelve years ago and we have managed to visit about once a year. Mostly, she and her husband come here. We have a silly habit of getting each other gifts when we visit. On this occasion, I got us matching coffee cups so we could think of each other when we used them. I found them at World Market, I believe.
At first, I used mine on Fridays to celebrate the end of the work week and remember our last visit. I’m not sure why Friday except that it’s my favorite day of the week and it just seemed appropriate.
I continued the tradition the following year (that one will come up eventually). After that, I didn’t think it would be as special if we had cupboards full of “bestie” mugs and Angel eventually stopped drinking coffee anyway. She does tea now, so maybe I’ll switch to pretty little tea cups for her. 🤔 Angel says she has three mugs from me. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the third one. Maybe she’ll read this and refresh my memory. 😉
A little side note: I saw this mug on a T.V. show one night! I thought that was pretty cool. Also, as you can see, it’s been well loved as evidenced by the little chips in the rim.
This mug reminds me of my bestie and how thankful I am that even though we’re farther apart in distance, we’re as close as ever. 😊💕
