Well it is true, I am 37! I can't believe it! I don't feel 37, I don't feel like a mom of 4 who is once again homeschooling. I don't know how 37 is supposed to feel, but I just feel younger than 37. I think that by typing 37 over and over again, I will get used to the idea. I had such a wonderful birthday. I woke up to birthday gifts, and cards. David and I went and got "the best doughnuts ever" (as David said) at the Village and pigged out. For lunch we went back to the village and ate at the sandwich shop with Polly and Jeremy. Polly is Stephens secretary and Jeremy is the youth minister. Jeremy was telling people I was 38 and I wasn't very happy with him, but he and Ms. Polly bought lunch, so I forgave him!! After lunch Stephen, the kids and I went to the pool. I love it so much!! We stayed there until time to clean up and go to church. When I got to church, I received even more gifts, and cards. Debbie and Laura Ann had a cake made for me, it was beautiful! And quite yummy, it had so much icing on it, that there wasn't a piece that wasn't wonderful!! They also gave me a ring, that I had been drooling after since early spring. They are just wonderful people. If you ever come to Star City, I will introduce you to these great girls. It is an honor and blessing to know them! Next week is my 14th anniversary. I tried to come up with 30 reasons I love my 30's and couldn't come up with any (although my BFF Cindy came with a few that were terrific!!!) but I think I can come up with 14 reasons I love being married. So I will post those next week. Thanks for all the birthday wishes!
We are Abby & Julie - born eight years apart to parents who taught us to love each other, respect each other, pray with each other and laugh with each other. This is our journey together as sisters and as friends.
I am Abby's big sister and quite chatty from what I hear. Being optimistic through life's journey is my humble pursuit. Talking is my favorite activity. Being a preacher's wife has been my most unexpected blessing. Being the mother of the Fab Four fills my life with endless warm fuzzies. My most favorite things are scrapbooking with my sister and mother, nights out with the girls, happy hour at Sonic, hugs from my kiddos, being an aunt to my handsome nephew, date nights with my hubby,vacationing with my family, bargain shopping with my sister, laying out at the pool, dinner dates with my best friend and laying on the couch with my blue blanket all to myself. Encouragement, prayer and service are my spiritual gifts. Sharing life's journey with my sister fills me with great pride and laughter.
I am Julie's little sister and quite funny from what I hear. Being joyful through life's journey is my humble pursuit. Laughing is my favorite activity. I have trouble making big decisions. I went to three colleges before receiving a degree in communications. One of the best decisions I have made was marrying my handsome husband. Being a mother to our precious baby boy thrills my soul . I am an athlete. I completed a marathon for charity. Being an aunt to the Fab Four is one of my most treasured roles. Having a loving family makes me most grateful. My favorite things are scrapbooking, entertaining in my home, going to Sonic at happy hour,riding four wheelers with my hubby, shopping red dot sales with my sister, laughing with my best friend, traveling with my hubby, laying out and decorating my home for each season. Hospitality, service and encouragement are my spiritual gifts. Sharing life's journey with my sister brings me great comfort and happiness.
A sister is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.
She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Somedays she's the reason you wish you were an only child.
