If you and I were to sit down and have a cuppa (that’s cup of tea/coffee for all you non-brits) here’s what we’d probably chat about:
I’d tell you that this weekend we got about 4 inches of snow and took the kids out to play in it Sunday morning. I’d tell you how both boys had the BEST time. I’d tell you how Jesse & I started a snowball fight and I accidentally smacked Lucas in the face with a snowball – full force. (bad Mommy) I’d take you out front and show you the snowman we built together and how I loved that it was our first ‘family’ snowman. Then we’d go back inside immediately to keep warm.
I’d probably show you my new designs from my new blog design business. I’d ask your opinion about some of the stuff I’m working on and tell you how I can’t believe I’ve actually made it this far and learned SO much. I’d ask about your job and how you got started, ask you how you manage your time with work & home.
We’d talk about our faith and where we are with it. I’d tell you that right now I’m not where I want to be, yet I don’t seem to be making any changes to actually fix it. I’d tell you that I absolutely love the Lord with all my heart yet don’t seem to show Him very often. I’d tell you that I finished a challenge to read the Bible in 90 days and how I loved every moment of it but then slacked off once I finished and really think I need to challenge myself to do it again. I would tell you how Cohen keeps asking to go to church and yet we don’t go – so I know that it’s God using him to push us to go. I’d ask you to pray for me and pray that I get my butt in gear.
We’d probably talk about me wanting another baby but knowing that Jesse doesn’t want another one. I would tell you how my heart yearns for one but know that now may not be the “best” time. I’d explain that Jesse and I have talked about it and he knows where my heart stands, so I have given it over to God. Either He will soften my heart and let me be content with our 2 boys, or He will soften Jesse’s heart and change his mind. I’d ask you about your kids and if you want more.
We would probably talk about the blogging community and how wonderful and scary it can be. I’d ask you how you started blogging and why you started. I’d ask you what your biggest struggle is with it and what you love the most about it. I’d tell you that I started like most people, just keeping family up-to-date and then it turned into so much more after moving to England. I’d tell you how intimidating it is for me to even think of contacting a “big time” blogger and how I’ve been let down by a few of them before. Then we’d probably talk about all our favorite little bloggy friends and wonder what they’re up to.
And then probably 3 hours later, after lots of laughs and chatting I’d probably be so sad to see you leave.
So, let’s do this again shall we?
