If we met for coffee…
… I’d tell you that I still don’t drink coffee. So tea it would be for me,
… I’d tell you that it is BIRTHDAY MONTH. Except you would know that already 🙂 But I would also tell you that I love birthdays – I love celebrating the day the most special people in my life were born and showering them with love, gratitude and spoils. But I also feel no shame in celebrating my very own birthday and the life that I love to life. #8moresleeps
… I’d tell you that I survived TWELVE days and nights of solo parenting with three sick girls and being sick myself. It wasn’t easy and at times, it wasn’t fun. But I made it. And now I pray my hubs never leaves again.
… I’d tell you to never take your health for granted. How many times do people tell us this and we still don’t listen? It’s been almost four long months of having chronic chest pain, body aches and pains, fatigue and tiredness and pins and needles and numbness in my hands and feet. After weeks of medication and numerous tests and scans and more tests and bloods, we still don’t have any concrete answers. But I am seeing my doctor for a follow up next week and I pray for answers.
… I’d tell you that I am so excited (and a little nervous) for my trip to the States next month. Ten whole days in New York and North Carolina, all on my own (sans husband, kids and friends). It’s going to be awesome and life changing – I just know it. (All recommendations in these two cities welcome!)
… I’d tell you that getting involved at your child’s school may seem daunting and very overwhelming but it really doesn’t have to be. It can be fun and it can be really awesome to be involved in their little space. I remember when I was little, watching in awe as the moms drove into the school parking lot (shock!) during school time (gasp!) and helped with something. I know that being organized and being social may be my thing, and it is tricky when you are a full time working mom but it really is a great feeling – for you and often your child too. I would say maybe reconsider the next time someone asks you to help in the tuck shop, to sew costumes for the school play or cover library books in plastic or sell tickets or organize a hamper for a fundraising event.
… I’d tell you that I am reading two books that are so close to my heart, empowering my soul and quite literally changing my life, one page at a time. I will be posting full reviews but in the meantime, get your hands on: The Lifegiving Home and Girl, Wash Your Face.
What would you share with me if we met for coffee today?
