When our girl gets home, it will already be almost mid-July. Time for summer clearances, fall merchandise in the stores (actually, I saw fall flowers the other day at JoAnn's!), and back-to-school sales.
Did you catch that? Excited!!
Words like that do a mama's heart good -- especially knowing the road that my girl has traveled, so to speak. She's come a long way.
Speaking of words that do my heart good... Last year, my girl shared her personal testimony at a small "house-group" that she attends weekly -- a break-out group from the high school youth group at church. One of the leaders told her that she was so proud of her, and recognized how much she had matured in the past year, and grown in her faith.
Stuff like that gets to me, and I'll tell you why:
1. Because we're talking about my child -- obviously.
2. [and this might not be as obvious] Because, it totally knocks the wind out of me to see other people invest themselves in my kids' lives -- and I mean that in a good way.
Our kids have been blessed with amazing leaders who have become important friends!
Well, this post was slightly themed, and slightly... RANDOM. Just some things that have been floating around in my head. Apparently there's lots of room in my head for floating when my girl isn't around to keep me busy. Ha!
Three more days to get my garage sale act together. I asked my hubby about putting some computer "stuff" in the garage sale, and he said, "If it isn't nailed down, it's fair game" -- which is good... except... now I need a truck and a big, empty garage. ANYONE?
