Five Minute Fridays ~ If you met me....

Teaming up with Gypsy Mama again today for Five Minute Friday. Write for 5 minutes, no editing (yikes!), and then link back to her site. :)  Have fun and join in!


GO

If you met me, it is quite possible that you would see my heart on my sleeve, a giggling baby attached to my hip, and a big smile. For you see, I am so glad to meet you, and want you to know that. (It really is genuine, too, for I believe that God puts people in my path that I am meant to meet.)

I would probably talk to loud, laugh even louder, and may even cry if you tell me your story....My heart sometimes feels too big to take it all in. But again, don't feel that I am just pretending, for that is my biggest fear of all. Instead, what you see is what you get (good, bad, weird, silly....) and it's true that some people don't like that. It's ok though, for no matter what, I think that you are pretty special.... "the visible presence of the invisible God".... one of my favorite quotes ever that I really believe and try to remember always.

...Hopefully, my kitchen would be clean enough for me to make you a great pot of French press coffee, a fritatta, and some ooey-gooey cinnamon buns, too. But you are welcome even if it's not... for I love to eat and would love to have you join me... We'd probably laugh at the baby who smiles so easily, listen to Joe retell his favorite movie, and my husband Tom, my darling too-loud, big-hearted husband would probably plop down and talk with you too. Maybe even grill you some of his special shrimp. ..... You matter. We want to know you. We want to hear your story. Welcome.

STOP


o.k.....
P.S. i think that it is so interesting where this leads my brain to... it's supposed to be about me, and it is... i just love how my family is such a big part of me. amazing. blessed.

    It is about you! Because, you are so much about others & not yourself! The very core of who you are seeks out God in everyone around you and wants to shower them with your heart, which is hospitality and joy! I love who you are and I am blessed to call you my dear friend! Pax!

  2. I did the same thing! Isn't it funny how they all creep their way in. I didn't even notice that about mine until you mentioned it here about yours. :) It must be because we're meant to be mamas. :)

  3. Yes...my post wandered toward my family...because so much of who I am these days, includes them! I am definitely meeting you if you are grilling shrimp. Oh, and since we are including family and all....hee hee!
