Summer has finally begun! Oh I know Casiday has been out of school for two weeks already. And in that two weeks we have made a trip to Alabama for Scott's 20th reunion, Casiday has been to children's camp and Scott & I went on our anniversary trip to Orlando.
But, even with that ... summer had not yet begun until now! See, we still had dance. Casiday loves dance and usually I do too. However, when her spring recital was not until June 13 ... that pushed my love to its limit!! :-)
Okay, that has nothing to do with my Fab Five post but I just needed to get it out there!!
Here goes ...
1. Watching my baby dance! She's not really a baby anymore but she's still my baby and watching her dance brings me such joy.
2. My sweet friend Natalie... without her at the eternal dress rehearsal Friday night I think I would have a Frightful Five this week instead of Fab. Thanks, Natalie, for making me laugh!
3. Precious older girls who have encouraged and blessed my girl. Alyssa & Madelynne - thank you for encouraging Casiday in dance and life! Judy & Adrianne - thank you for ALL you have done to mold my 9-year-old into who she is! There are so many more who have been a blessing to me as they have connected with my child ... I am so thankful!
4. Dear friends who have encouraged me to write and keep writing.Pattie, Christina, Cyndie, Stacy, Lindsey, Karen ... thank you. Keep pushing me!!
I am a thirty-something follower of Christ who is also a wife, mom, daughter, sister, neice, aunt, granddaughter, friend, community volunteer, room mom, and so many more hats I really can't always keep track. I am a girly girl but I love football! I have many friends but relish quiet moments of solitude. I love to read, aspire to write, and hate to travel. I'm fairly disciplined in my life but not always organized. My biggest dream is to have a book published. I have recently had the epiphany that no is suprised by my imperfections except me ~ an important lesson I needed to learn. I struggle with forgiveness. I expect way too much from myself and from others. I am passionate about God's Word and treasure every minute I spend reading and studying it. Jesus Christ is my Lord, my Savior, my Comforter, my Healer, my Rest, my Strength, my Song, my Tower of Strength, my Refuge, my Friend.
