Road Trip!

roadtripMy girlfriend, K, snapped this picture when we were in the car a couple weeks back. She is a super star... she volunteered to ride with me and MG back down to Tennessee after spring break was done. It was SO nice to have someone in the car for the trip back. Its usually very somber for me, having to drop my big girl off then be alone in the car for 10 hours. But this go around, I had company. It was priceless, the things we shared on I-81. She is a treasure!

Anyway.... I adore this picture. MG is a ham as always. I love every single freckle on that sweet face. We had a blast! It was the goofiest weather ever. Sun, rain, snow, sun, sleet, fog. Nuts! The weather in the mountains during a front can do that I suppose. Crazy!

Birthday Bagel

Happy 36th birthday to me!

I'm celebrating my birthday today. And a lot of other things... over a lightly toasted, cathartic everything bagel and my yummy cuppa coffee. Life has been tough lately. I've had some personal struggles and had been feeling pretty yucky about myself. Its been 6 years since I've had such gray skies. But. God is good. Sometimes its not so fun how He pulls the rug out from under you. Yet He knows when you need it.

I had managed to take the keys from Him again. I was winding my way down my own path, having a great old time. When the car started crashing I just couldn't figure out why. But now, that the mess is cleaned up, I can clearly see that I'd put some things between us. He doesn't like that so much.

So, Happy Birthday Me! Its a sunny day!
