I had lunch with some college buddies today. We were at a nice little restaurant with a very attentive waiter. Actually, a little too attentive, if you know what I mean. He was not picking up on our sighs, pert smiles, and lack of eye contact. We were not all that interested in the history of Cherry Coke. Oh, well. Next time I have a slice of time with important people and I’m at a restaurant I’m gonna make a little “do-not-disturb” sign with my napkin.
It felt good to say “The Most Important Things” to these trusted friends. In summing up several years and many turns and tangles – I had many blessing to share.
It was fun to see how we all fit together again. I have missed them and have found deep friendships much harder to start and maintain in these later seasons of life. But, I’m also thankful to have married well with fellowship and camaraderie at the dinner table most nights of the week.
We, of course, talked about all our wonderful kids and it got me thinking. Motherhood has done great things for me. I really like the areas God has shaped in my life through my kids. I think I want some more babies.
There I said it.
I have a bit of a secret fleece I’m waiting on, but I’ll give you a hint. If one particular friend whose name starts with N and rhymes with “less” will have a baby too, I’m all in. Just kidding.
