One of my greatest pleasures in life is sitting down at the kitchen table, sharing a hot cup of coffee and good conversation with a friend. I do wish I could have each one of you in for a visit, wouldn’t that be awesome?!
The next best thing is my hot cuppa, a scone or muffin, and my laptop. Isn’t it a blessing how we can connect with special people who become good friends without ever meeting face-to-face? Trust me, I’d much prefer face-to-face, but I’ll take a good cyber-chat or blog post now and then.
Would you like to know who’ve I’ve been ‘visiting’ with this week? Let me share a few snippets from my ‘conversations.’ I hope these wise words will put a smile on your face and peace in your heart.
“As we all know, cleaning a house with kids inside is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos. It’s just not going to be very effective.” by Michaela at California to Korea
Michaela has almost as many children as I do! Her sweet spirit and fun sense of humor shine through in this post about how we get some housework done and that it’s a GOOD thing to have soooo many kids.
“Life is the lesson not the curriculum.” by Kim at Day to Day Adventures
Kim has a heart for family, and it shows! She and her husband have raised some really amazing people – I love spending time with her online and in person, too, when I get the chance.
“We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.“ by C. S. Lewis via Lauren at the Thinking Closet
Lauren cracks me up! She’s perky little thing, full of creativity and bubbling with joy. It isn’t all on the surface either. Beneath her fantastic creations and her bouncy personality there’s a deep love and wisdom.
“. . . I did not wait for my dream house before I made my home. . . I am so glad that we did not wait all those years to make our house a real home . . . Don’t waste the years wishing for something better before you begin to make a house a home.” by Cheryl at Thinking about Home.
Who are you visiting with these days? Have you enjoyed a friendly visit with a special person at your own kitchen table? Or gathered with friends around the web as I have of late?
Sharing this post at some of these wonderful places.
