EXPOSE’!!! Get the REAL scoop about Lynn from CH!!
Our family had the decided pleasure of enjoying the husband and oldest son of Lynn from Choosing Home here in our home. WOW, did we get the scoop about her!
Got ya! We did delight in the company of Mr g and their son, but I couldn’t get them to give me dirt on Lynn no matter what I promised. (I guess I should have gotten smart and offered them some of her recipes made up, but I didn’t think of that until after they left. Ahhhh, the value of 20/20 hindsight!)
I will tell you both her men spoke of what a great cook she was. Her son said he wasn’t going to leave home because of her cooking. Her husband said several times how much he was looking forward to being back home to her cooking. (I chose not to take offense at that – especially since the one time he said it he was eating at my table) 😉
I will tell you that both her men spoke of her hospitable spirit and her desire to minister to others in their home.
I will tell you that her husband shared of her incredible submission and responsive heart to him.
I will tell you that they spoke of her passion and delight in being a mommy – and how much she enjoys holding babies. (Although her labor room behavior may leave something to be desired….) 😉
I will tell you that we learned she MIGHT be an heiress to a major corporation – but she isn’t.
I will tell you we learned that she’s a MEAN Spoons player – and we should bring hockey equipment to play cards at her table.
But most of all, we learned that she loves her men well, as they were both horribly homesick for her (and the other family members as well, natch) and they were eagerly counting the days until they were together again. Her husband said, “This may have to be the last of my adventures without Lynn. This has been really hard.” Now, that’s HIGH praise, in my book.
Lynn, as the guys pulled away today, amidst all the shouting and waving, my throat closed up because the focus of their next step, although they were looking forward to seeing the relatives they were headed toward, was of how this brought them closer to being home with you. I felt so sad that our enjoyment of their company meant you were apart – I felt so sad that our enjoyment was not complete – as you were not here. I’m so looking forward to that future meeting. Your men have represented you VERY well. Thank you for sharing them.
