The poor kid in this picture is just waiting for his turn to play. (yes, it’s blurry) I love it…all the adults are playing jumprope while he patiently guards their stuff. Way to go!
I am enjoying everyone that’s been coming to visit this site. So far I believe we’ve had 6 Portuguese (Paige, Tim, Angie, Michelle, Heather, Stephanie)…1 Ireland (Sarah)…2 Mexicans (Cheri, Dennis)…1 New Yorker (Craig), 1 Texan (Sherry)…and a Rex. There was also one guy that I didn’t know who didn’t know me. So far Portugal is winning so if we don’t want this to become a Portugal site you guys better start recruiting some folks.
I appreciate all that have stopped by. This has been so good for my heart already. I am looking forward to the fun we can have. I had an idea…I don’t know if any of you have ever played “hot seat”…maybe I made it up…but we did it at a retreat or somewhere. One person is selected to be in the “hot seat”. They have to sit in the middle of the circle while everyone goes around and says something nice about them. They are not allowed to say anything they just have to listen…it’s nice…but excruciatingly uncomfortable. Let’s play that.
Actually it will be a different version of that. I will select someone to be in the “hot seat”. I will post that they are it…and include a picture unless there are any objections. Then we will spend a day or two talking to that person. Only this doesn’t have to be just saying nice things…although that’s allowed. You can ask them questions…tell stories…etc. This will take some cooperation on your part.
What I need from you guys is to know if you mind having your picture posted and if you mind being in the hot seat. I’m really being nice asking…because there’s not a lot to stop me from just doing it. (Is it illegal to put people’s pictures up without their permission?) I really will respect anyone’s wishes to not participate, but I think it will be fun. So unless you just totally object please play along.
Laughter is my favorite side effect of happiness. I spent quite awhile without my laugh and now that I’ve got it back I need you guys to help me keep it close.
I will wait to hear what you guys think…and then stay tuned…for the first round of the “hot seat”.
