This weekend, my friend Brooke and her husband came for a visit. I have known Brooke since we were both in high school. We both taught swim lessons and somehow have forged a friendship that has lasted almost 10 years. It was great seeing them. They came to church with us on Sunday before heading back.
I keep trying to wait for some witty or deep thoughts before I blog. My fear is that if I wait until that happens, a year will have passed. My brain seems a little on overdrive these days and by the time I sit down at the end of the day, I can barely put together a coherent thought. But, for you faithful readers, here's the gist of my life:
*I love my kids...really love them. They bring so much joy into my life. Noah wakes up and gives me big hugs and kisses everyday. Callie graces us with her beautiful smiles and giggles. If nothing else good happens the rest of the day, those would be enough.
*Dave bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers the other day. just because. He is actually very good about this. I rarely go long stretches without a bouquet sitting on our kitchen table. Thanks love!
*I'm learning TONS about my faith...where I am maturing and where I need to mature. It's good though. I definitely feel God working in my heart and changing me for the better. I still have a long way to go, but at least I am heading in the right direction.
* We start our new lifegroup this week...and I for one, am really excited about fresh beginnings and to see what God has in store for it.
That's about it. Below is a picture of Callie and her "plume" as we call it. She's a pretty content kid. We're very fortunate.
