So, I was reading Kelly's blog tonight and got a little inspiration. All of us, (I am speaking mainly of my real life friends) are in very different stages in life right now. For the most part, we are separated by a lot of miles, too. I miss the close "girlfriendy" (yes, that is a word) relationships of the past. In an effort to come up with an idea to foster that, Kelly gave me an idea. Why not create something akin to Secret Sisters, but it's something you send in the mail. The real mail. SNAIL MAIL. How happy would it be to open your mailbox and see something inside from a friend? It could be a card...it could be a small trinket you picked up from somewhere. Maybe it's a magazine article that made you think of that person, or a picture from days gone by that you stumbled across...or a great recipe....can this sentence get any longer!?! You get the idea. Now, it's up to you girls to let me know if you would be interested in doing it and help work out the logistics. Each person could send one thing each week to someone....etc. Something along those lines. What do you think? This could be girlfriendy, right? Let me know! Talk to you ladies soon!
I am a Christ following, 31 year old girl, trudging through life trying to learn to be an adult! I am my husbands girlfriend, my step-sons encourager, my dogs mom, as well as a daughter, granddaughter, friend, niece, sister, and lots more. I am learning to juggle all of these things, and along the way my Father is teaching me a lot about myself. Join me on my ride of learning lessons!
Meet Olin. He is my rock, my foundation, my grounding force, my spiritual leader, my husband, and my best friend. He is the best thing that ever happened to me. He is eternally patient with me and all of my crazy ways. For that, I am very blessed. He loves Nascar, history, politics, and his boy. He loves to teach me things and take me outside of my comfort zone. He challenges me all the time and makes me long to be a better person.
Meet our 11 year old middle schooler!!! He is becoming quite the young man! A lover of science, outdoors, movies, and snarkiness...He gets the last part from me! :) We have had big adjustments leaving elementary school this year, but none that he hasn't taken in stride and worked hard to overcome. His dad and I are so proud of him and the young man he is becoming. Our prayer is that we lay a foundation that will withstand all of the trials he is sure to face in the next few years. One thing is for sure-boys sure are a hoot to have around!
