She Will...

invite you in right away, and ask you how your drive was

she will offer you something to drink, 
if she's lucky, you will tell her coffee, because that is what she'll want and it's always sweeter shared between friends

she will make sure you are comfortable, wherever you choose to sit, and she'll start right in,

"how are you?" "how is your family?" "what is new?" "is there anything i can help with?"

she will listen with intent, and do her best to not interrupt,

she will show you around her house a little, or a lot, if you are interested, 
and tell you all about the history in the decor,

she will have made you dessert, 
and will feel honored if you stay
to share it with her.

she will ask you again if you need
anything and make sure you are comfy,
and when you leave, she'll be overwhelmingly 
grateful for your visit.

the she, 
is me.
please come 
again.

Lovely, Gina, wish i could come over and sit down with you... Share some coffee and have a fab tour of your digs. So happy for these blogs that we can get to know people who we would have never gotten to meet otherwise.
