I can honestly say that at least fifteen names jumped into my head when I read this question…from the movie stars that I adore to watch on screen to the huge Bible stars that I often wonder about. Buuuut, I would pick my paternal grandfather.
He died from cancer when I was 13…and it is from him that I got my red hair. I had a close relationship with him as a small child and I would love the chance to sit with him, talking about all that he’s missed in being gone…showing him pictures of the red heads that I have now, ones that stemmed from his genes. …and I would love to know that he is proud of me.
willing to share with the blogging world? ~*~
I love how it adds “willing to share with the blogging world”…as there are SO many that I will not be posting here and have, in fact, paid my closest friends large sums of money to keep their traps shut! (…checks are in the mail, guys…I promise!!…)
I’ll be honest that there are many to choose from as I am rather clutzy, but one that still makes me red-faced at the mere thought of it is this:
I met my hubby online…so for the first almost month, we only spoke on the phone and wrote emails to each other.
In our email-based flirting, I started “grading” him on his responses…
…and after one particularly touching reply, I sent to him: “You get the grade of “S” for stealing my heart.”
HUGE confession for me as I hadn’t met him yet and I was already madly over the moon for him…and I sat there, so nervous I wanted to throw up…what would he say? was it too much to confess? too soon? aaaauuuggghhh!!
Then my email showed a reply and nervously, I clicked to see if he was ready to run away screaming from the psycho girl who loved a man she hadn’t even seen in person…and what I found was something along the lines of “Ahhh…thanks… But I have a question…but how exactly did I manage to leave you cold from way over here??? (PS – you should scroll back down to your email and re-read the grade you gave me…hee hee)”
I wrinkled my brow and scrolled back down to see what I had said that confused him so…
…and there it was.
Yeah, it seems that in typing so fast, I forgot the “r” in heart…and so had graded him, a man I had yet to even meet, for stealing my HEAT.
I. Wanted. To. Die.
Buuuuut, I guess it worked out tho…we met the next day and the rest is, as they say, history. :0)
what would it be? ~*~
I am really a mess of so many words…but when it comes down to having to choose just one, I realize that anything I do, I full force and with all of my heart. I don’t know how to love halfway…if I commit to something, I do it with all my heart.
Oh so many thoughts!!! Hard to juggle them all…but I would have to say I would go forward to the end when I am finally wrapped up in the hug of my Savior. Total Bible answer, I know, but it is honest cuz to me…that is the only moment that makes it all worth it.
…the love of my husband and children….
It isn’t perfect and it isn’t easy…but the moments in which one of them stops and actually vocalizes their thoughts for me,…me…, it just blows my mind.
~*~ I hope you guys will take the time to check out Amy’s blog, Filled With Praise, as it is a faith-filled place to be. :o) I wish you all the best of weekends…see you next week. ~*~
