This particular week came at the perfect time. It had been a rough one and ended so sweetly with a weekend with a dear friend.
Week of October 13-19, 2015
Day 1 - This sweet girl.
The way we have met is a crazy God story.
We meet occasionally to chat and I'm praying for her heart to be open to Jesus. Will you pray with me?
Day 2 - Texas State Fair.
Need I say more? I'll have to a whole post on the fair, but oh what fun!
Day 3 - New favorite yogurt - mango/pineapple with chopped almonds and coconuts.
And it looks like a heart-shaped Mickey.
Day 4 - They are back!!!!!
The Chickfila calendars - best thing ever!
Time to road trip to Mississippi to meet dear Jen and Caleb.
Followed this car for a while - that "passenger" in the middle up there? A giant Looney Toons character. Can't make this stuff up.
Day 5 - Together again!
How I love these two!
Jen was my first friend in Panama and here we are NINE years later.
Man - we have lived and walked through a lot of laugh together and she is more dear now than ever.
And the handsome little guy - he is growing up way too fast!
He did eventually let me hold him, although a bit begrudgingly.
Love you, little man!
Day 6 - Stop growing up! I can't handle it!
Oh Jen - how dear you are to my heart!
I love that we can meet up and just start life right where we are now!
Love you dearly and can't wait to do another long weekend trip again soon!
Day 7 - Invitation to Grandparents and Special Friends Day.
At first I thought perhaps I had missed many stages in my life (ie: marriage, having children, and suddenly then I was a grandparent!).
Sweet sister sent me this for the girls' school.
Y'all know I'm going to be that lady in the rocking chair one day.
Who am I kidding? I might be her now!
* The weekend I was with Jen was when I got the call that sweet Grandma Jean had gone to be home with Jesus. I miss her, but am so incredibly grateful for the hope of heaven.
