It's been a while....
Dear Church Member:
When the preacher says to shake hands and hug necks, if a person suddenly busies herself, ignoring everything around her, she most likely doesn’t like shaking hands and hugs from strangers. Give her a smile and a wave and go on to the next
victim person. Definitely don’t “politely” stand over her patiently waiting for her to look up…she won’t
Yeah, I’m working on liking being grabbed by strangers or almost-strangers. I gotta tell you…I really don’t see it happening. I can love an overenthusiastic stranger from afar…or just a mere pew away.
Not everyone needs a hug. Some folks don’t even like to be touched unless it’s by someone in their own tight little circle. Even so, I am certain God can still use such a person. Maybe they’ll write a blog or something.
I’m friendly enough, and I try to be friendlier than I feel at times. I’m not as anti-social or germophobic as some family members like to accuse me of, even if I do always have antibacterial on hand. heheh
Dear College Chick:
Lately, I've ask this at least once a day to someone, though not out loud…Isn't your booty cold? It’s not even 30° outside, and your lower half is only covered by a leotard (or tights or leggings, whatever your calling them these days). When your shirt and jacket won’t cover your hiney…well…don’t you feel a draft back there? Consider putting some breeches on! What about a skirt? A skirt would do.
One short visit to your Facebook page reminded me why I hid you from my “wall.” Your posts quickly irritate. You twist facts into a complex knot, and seemingly believe every liberal cartoon and headline you read. I would unfriend you, but that might make things uncomfortable when we run into each other.
Dear Gina:Happy Birthday, my beautiful sister! Words can’t tell what you mean to me. Thank you for liking me, even when I’m not so easy to like. (I think it’s the law that you have to love me regardless.) When it comes to sisters, I have two of the best, and I am so thankful. I hope this year brings you much joy and love, and I pray God blesses you in every way. Much love, my sister, my friend.
