Ever have those moments with another person, maybe over coffee or tea, during which your hearts connect, and three hours go by in a flash? The ones where you laugh or cry together, often both. I've had those moments and cherish them. You can't help but leave conversations like that feeling understood, loved, fulfilled, and inspired. There are days I crave these moments, and there are days I'm actually blessed with them and so very thankful for the women God brings into my life. I found this post by Tere of Ale & Tere and was inspired to write one of my own.
If we were meeting for tea today, I'd smile, envelop you in a warm hug, order something full of flavor, and cozy into our corner of the coffee shop and start our heart-to-heart. If you asked me how I was....
I would tell you that I have many dreams and not enough patience to realize they don't all need to happen in my twenties.
I would tell you that I've been feeling anxious lately, and am a little scared that I'm slipping back into some old struggles.
I would tell you that I get lonely easily.
I would tell you that some days I don't get the point of housework and don't bother, and other days I can't relax until everything is spick-and-span.
I would tell you that the past few weeks I've spent an hour in a "go-to-sleep" tango with my sweet baby boy and although I wish he'd go to bed quickly, I still enjoy laying beside him in the dark and quiet of our room.
I would tell you that I'm already thinking about baby number two and that I'm excited to give birth again when the time is right.
I would tell you that I want to be a midwife, but going back to school and the fear of failure scares me.
I would tell you that as of right now, I have four loads of laundry that need to be washed, folded, and put away and that this week my motivation level has been an all-time low.
I would tell you that I still get excited every time Michael pulls in to the driveway after work and look forward to it all day.
Although I can't have a cup of tea or coffee with you, I love getting to share bits of my heart and life on this blog. So although we aren't sitting across from each other, thank you for lending me your ear by coming and reading and sharing some of your heart, too.
