If You Met Me

Writing for 5 minutes on the prompt: "If You Met Me."
Real, true, unscripted, and unedited...
If you met me.. 

  • I hope that you would see God -- by the way I live my life, make my choices, raise my kids.
  • I would tell you about my family, who I love like crazy.  Even in the midst of hard things, we stick together and support one another.  
  • I would (no doubt) tell you about the part-time work that I enjoy at our church -- in Kids Ministries.  One job is ending until fall, and I'm gearing up for a summer job that will be new and interesting to me.
  • I would tell you for sure that I am kind of sick of this hard winter/cold spring weather and ready for some warm sun on my back.  But at the same time, I am reminded (by the daily news) to be thankful that I am not in a tsunami or earthquake zone -- and to pray for the people who ARE. 
  • You would no doubt learn that I am a homeschooler, but that I do not brag on that.  It's not how I roll.  I feel uncomfortable around people who can only identify me as a homeschooling mom.  There is much more to me.
  • I might talk to you about my latest interests of photography and blogging. 
  • You would no doubt learn that I wear my heart on my sleeve, and that sometimes, I have to hold back, because I reveal too much, and "spill over" in my joys or frustrations.  I think it overwhelms people sometimes.
  • You would learn that I TREASURE my friendships.  God has blessed me with the most awesome friends -- women who "get" me, and I am thankful for that DAILY.


  1. Dear Sally,

    Thank you so much for sharing this, for this beautiful picture of your heart for your family, your friends, for education, and for how you "wear your heart on your sleeve". Lovely.

  2. Family, children, love for God and a new interest in photography. I feel a connection--glad to meet you on 5 Minute Friday. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
