I have the bestest mama in the whole wide world! (I guess that means Jules does too, huh?) Yesterday I had a huge box sitting on my porch from the USPS. Mama mailed me a beautiful and fun furry vest to wear to my winter gala (she wants me to be the prettiest one there). Also in the box was a scrapbook she made of my childhood. She redid the one she made when I was little into an acid free album and journaled the pages. It is most precious. I thank God for parents who love me by their actions and not just their deeds. When they buy me stuff I love it but just hearing them tell me they love me and having them spend time with me because they just want to be with me, means the world to me. I cherish saying "I love you" without reservation to my family. I hate to hear that not all people use these three precious words without reservation to their loved ones. I can't imagine how sad that must be but I would love to show them how easy it is...come meet my people...you will learn fast! Thanks for the fur and the pictures, Mama....you always know how to make me smile!
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.
