bowl of soul
Isaiah and I did today's check-up at Club Sutter. The clinic was super-busy with lots of sick kids - which is always so sad. Isaiah "looked great" and all his numbers are strong.
Afterwards, we went to Tupelo's where the little guy got a Jones Cream Soda and dad thoroughly enjoyed a Bowl of Soul (which must be experienced in order to truly appreciate). During our first stay in the hospital, I would take my few minute break most days to walk to this little shop. I fell in love with this amazing chamomile tea/steamed milk/honey and cinnamon creation. Not only is it a perfectly delicious "comfort food," but the drinking experience itself feels almost prayerful - partly because it requires both hands; partly because I was praying so desperately in those early days. Both as a tea-drinker and as a pastor, I recommend it whole-heartedly.
