I've been tagged!
So here are 5 things about me:
1 - I was tagged by my friend Trey who baptized me at 14, counseled me at 16, married my husband and I at 21, and still serves as a wonderful mentor to me at 31.
2- I secretly believe that Childress, Texas is the "land of milk and honey". I would gladly live next door to my mom and dad if that were a possibility. I once drove my daughter 8 hours to see Dr. Green because I was sure that doctors in my town were not doing their job. I was right and I would still trust my life to him. I consider my aunts, mom, and grandmother (all in Childress) to be the greatest women alive. Finally at 29 I found a new eye doctor ( I still would rather see Dr. Davis). If you have never visited please go sometime, you will never meet friendlier people.
3- I have had the same best friend for 22 years. Stacy is still the smartest, funniest, and most creative person that I know. She knows me better than I know myself and I can't imagine going very many hours without talking to her. Of our 22 years we have only lived in the same town 3 of those years (college where we shared an apartment). So I tag her so that you can see how great she is.
4- I am married to the greatest father in the world. I am constantly amazed at the way he interacts with our kids. I knew I loved him, but having kids together has bonded us closer than I could have ever imagined. I certainly doesn't hurt that he is also tall, dark, and handsome. ;)
5- If you have read my blog much, you know that I am a christian. What you may not know is that I have struggled with what that really means most of my life. It is not because I didn't have a wonderful church family to grow up in or the best youth minister, or a faithful family. I had all of those things. I even went to a christian college (only for 3 semesters). None of that will get me to heaven without a personal relationship with God. That is what I am working on now and will continue to work on for the rest of my life.
