It has occurred to me that you all have more fun than I remember having
when I was in school. But I DO NOT want to relive my youth through
you guys. I love being an adult, and I love WATCHING you. I am very
glad that God has allowed me the privilege of doing what I’m doing at this
point in my life.
Now, for your reading pleasure, you simply must read Grace’s post today.
TurquoiseFlamingo It’s the hardest I’ve laughed in a while. I love Grace.
She isn’t a trumpet, and she isn’t in my youth group. She doesn’t come to
Movie Night. Nope, she’s not in any of the usual places..she plays trombone!
She’s amazing…kind of like Kris Hay. She’s just touched me! Anyway,
I know you’ll laugh when you read what she wrote. I wish I could have a
movie night every night so I could see so many different “friends.” I liked
the girls’ idea of a girls night, and we could send Chip to Daniel’s or Andrew’s.
Elizabeth, Beth, Chelsey, Jacque, Emily, Julia Grace, and who else would
we have? My girls could all get to know each other! Melissa, Kallie, Christie,
Allie, Taylor, Courtney, Morgan, I can’t keep typing or I’ll be late for church, but
you get the picture! I don’t really have many girls in Parker’s age group. I’m
sure that will change as they get to the high school and are in my youth group.
Parker will be just thrilled, I’m sure.
Bernie and I will be back to just the two of us some day, and I love him so much
that I’ll be just fine. We have a blast whenever we’re together. You know, that’s
really important. When you marry someone, make sure it’s someone God chose
for you. That way, you’ll enjoy being with each other when it’s just the two of you
and your kids are out with their own activities.
Have a happy Sunday. Maybe I’ll have pictures tonight after Youth Group!
