My Friday Friends...

Me with  Faye and Lena

 For the past few months on Friday afternoons, 
I have been meeting up with two fantastic ladies.
These women have touched my heart in so many ways I can't even explain. 
Both of them are women who love the Lord and hunger for for more of Him in their lives.

Me, being the youngest of the three, have gained so much wisdom from them. 

Faye and Lena

The older of us three is like a mother figure to me, 
her name is Faye.  

She is an amazing woman who has so much wisdom to offer.  
I have bonded with her closely
and am so thankful for God bringing her into my life. 

She has a blog...
so if you want to check her out....go on over to visit her here.

Then there's my sweet friend Lena...
You know she's moving next week??? 
I am a bit sad this week because her move.  

I don't know what I'll do without Lena checking up on me. 
She is an amazing woman who is probably one of the biggest givers I know.
She serves like Jesus. 

I truly have learned so much more about the Love of the Christ 
through watching her serve me 
and serve many others.  

She truly has been an inspiration and I feel so blessed to have her as one of my
greatest friends

Tonight we are all getting together for her send off party. 

Boy oh boy....I am going to miss my friend so very much.  :(  
I know we'll still keep in touch through phone and email but it's still not the same..
so I've been a little sad :( 

A few weeks back, Faye made a delicious lunch for us
We usually meet at a coffee shop so this time was so very special to me. 

The table was so beautifully set!!

It was very nice to sit, relax, and chat for hours. 
I think we stayed for at least 4 hours.

My joke with them is
"I NEVER leave my children....I'm always home with them."
  Ha ha... 

Thank God for wonderful built in sitters, Justin and the girls.  :)

Lena and Faye laughed at me because I was taking these pictures of our lunch....

I think it was so very nice and absolutely beautiful!!

Faye made a wonderful summer chicken salad
with fresh fruit....delish..

And for a drink....
it wasn't just plain sweet ice tea
Oh no not with Faye..
it was a peachy, mangoish ice tea....
I forgot the exact flavor
It was yummmmmmy!

It is so wonderful to have such great friends...

Good friends are such a blessing! I meet with a group of ladies from church each week, and they are such a wonderful part of my life. Girlfriends are truly a gift from God. I hope you'll be able to keep up with Lena online! Some friends who are out of town seem so close by, just b/c I see what's going on with them through blogs or Facebook!

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
