The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Who am I?

Just thought I would share a funny conversation that happened yesterday.  A dear friend of mine (Meg's godfather, in fact) told me yesterday that he had read my blog for the first time ever.  I asked him what he thought of it and he said he thought it was a bit "random."  Okay, I'm not disagreeing there, but I asked him to expound.  Then he told me that he read one post that said I wanted to move to a tropical island and quit being a mom and then my next post said I loved being a mom and that I was praying, etc.  He didn't think it jived.  Of course, he had some thoughts on whether either of these posts are who he sees in real-life too, but that's another post.  Anyway, I thought it was kinda funny, but it also made me think... that's pretty much who I am.  This random person who has so much more than "one thing" that defines me, but yet, also, is totally driven and defined by this "one thing" that makes my heart in sync with so many others who share it too.  

Anyway, this post is nothing if not random, but I thought it was pretty interesting that someone who just popped in for the first time, even the person who knows me well, might think I'm just too random!  :)

Hope you're having a good Monday!  It's the last week of summer for us.  We go back to school on Monday of next week so we are trying to enjoy ourselves.  Where has the summer gone anyway?

This really cracks me up! I think most women seem really "random" in our thought process to the opposite sex. My husband and I have had many discussions about how we are different just based on the mars /venus theory!
As for the island thing... I think you said what you felt that day out loud and guy's just keep their random thoughts to themselves!HA!
Enjoy your last week of summer!We have 20 more days off and counting! I am really going to miss those days of sleeping late and being in our PJ's all day long!

yeah, random.....well, that is real! I think I can vacilate between the gamet of emotions in less than 10 minutes.
For a long time my mantra was "some beach, somewhere".....
And we also have 20 days til school starts and "I" cannot wait! I thrive on the schedule and get more done....although fighting over the homework and all that endless paperwork that comes home each day.....that I don't miss at all!

I go from loving my kids to wanting to kill my kids within seconds...at least it takes you a couple of days! Today, when struggling with my 4 year old to clean up his toys, I got so frustrated I finally said, "Get your butt in here!" to which he replied, "My butt can't walk!" I went from being irritated to rolling with laughter in a matter of seconds. Kids do that to us, don't they? Ya gotta love 'em - they keep us real and grounded! Thanks for the blog!
