Come have tea with me on my porch!
Let's get to know each other.
Join in by posting your answers in the comment box or on your blog,
Just remember to let us know so we can tea talk with you.
1. What is the single best decision you've made in your life?
Gosh, I was going to originally say marrying my husband. That is the thought I've had since I saw this question last week. Then, as I sit here, I would have to say my whole conversion, which involves completely changing my life, leaving a bad marriage and trusting that God lead me to that point and was going to continue to lead me.
In, completely trusting in God, He led me to Tom and that led to marrying him and living the life I live right now.
Maybe someday I will write all about that stuff, it's just so long....
2. If you had one day in your life to live over--which would you choose? And why?
I would choose my wedding day.
But only if I could live that day over, knowing the things I know now.
I would choose that day because there is so much I'd love to tell that young couple.
I thought I loved him on that day with all my heart, but I love him so much more today,
and I'd love to look him in his eyes and just feel that--back in the beginning.
I suppose that is just too much love for that time though and we'd burst.
It makes me think of the Transfiguration, that God is too bright and magnificent for us to see Him in His glory, and that is the way it would be on our wedding day if we had the love we have now, at the beginning, we just couldn't handle the splendour of it.
Little by little, over time, our love has grown and we are able to withstand it together.
Hopefully, little by little, we are more Christ-like and His magnificence shines in us more and more each day.
3. What is your favorite restaurant?
My answer is boring.
They are everywhere.
I love that they have all different kinds of food, it's relaxing,
family style, has a great kid menu and it smells of coffee and breakfast!
I always order the Club Sandwich with a side salad. Always have and always will.
Ever since I was a kid.
I remember when I was a kid, they had a wishing well, filled with little treasures.
We'd get to pick one to take with us.
Perkins is the perfect place for a family, for meeting a friend, or for a larger group of friends.
It's also the perfect place for a "date" with your husband!
4. Who is the first friend you ever had? Are you still friends?
My first friend, is Denise.
We were 4 and 5 years old when we met, her family bought our farmhouse, and we moved to California.
I went to Kindergarten out there, then half way through the year,
we moved back to MN and we stayed friends throughout our school years.
She stayed my friend through several more moved to California and back to MN.
Our senior year, she even came by herself and visited our family in California.
We had such a great time!!
We are still friends.
But, not as much as we'd probably like.
We live about 45 minutes from each other and have gotten busy with our lives.
It's sad, I know.
Every time we do talk, it's like we've not been apart at all.
I saw her Christmas time and we talked and jabbered just like old times, it had
been 4 years since I'd seen her.
She will always hold a special place in my heart.
5. What is the first thing you'd grab in a fire or tornado? (kids are a give-in, has to be a thing)
Well, living in Minnesota, we will be going into our basement several times this spring and summer.
(and have several times in the past)
The sirens are right behind our house, up on the hill, so it adds an extra panic to the whole thing!
We all run downstairs,
I grab my purse/diaperbag (it's the same thing),
insulin and phone (our home phone is a cell phone). I grab it because there are diapers in it, my prayer books are in it, including that St Joseph one for storms, my rosary is in it too, as well as extras for the kiddos. My camera is in it too.
I always make sure I grab my shoes too....because if there's a real tornado, I'd want to at least have shoes on!
We sit on the couch, snuggle and pray and wait it out.
The praying always calms everyone down.
That's it! Thanks for coming for Tuesday Tea Talk! Have a wonderful day everyone!
