I’ve been asked to be a “guest” at another blogger’s site.
Just a bit of background ~ I met Alana in a Vision Board class this fall. She was smart, precise, curious and a bit shy. There was a moment in the class that we found ourselves talking about relationships and I casually commented how that night was “date night.” And she got it. A smile lit up her face. And that moment for me … when she let her heart shine through, I felt a connection with her spirit. She understood what I was trying to say – that I value my marriage, that I pay attention to it and that I have not let him wither on the vine. I left wondering if the reason I was there was to cross paths with her.
We kept in touch and, later, when she mentioned she’s been busy with another project that’s left her little time to blog and politely asked if I’d consider “guest blogging” on her site, I agreed. Even though I didn’t really know what all would be involved or what she might expect of me. I trusted my instincts that this was good for us both. And it is.
Thinking on it further, it came to me that I already know what to do: I’ll just try to be a good guest.
I’ll be thoughtful.
I’ll show up on time.
I’ll try to bring something to the table.
I’ll pitch in and not create any extra work for my hostess.
I’ll give my opinion if asked, and hold back if not.
I’ll be the kind of guest that someone might ask back again.
If you’d like to read my guest post, and Alana’s thoughts as well, hop on over to Musings of a Shiny Penny or via my blogroll.
