Just thinkin'

I really can't think of a whole lot to say that would be meaningful in any way. I've just been drawing a blank. Things for me have been really good though. There's not any certain reason why, it just seems as though things have been leveling out nicely. I have gained a lot of wisdom and insight into myself and the way God created me and why. I think that has been the biggest blessing of all over the last several weeks.

I could probably fill you in on a bunch, but I just don't feel like gabbin' right now. I will, however, recommend a book. The Shack...I'm reading it. I'm a little over half way through it. I encourage you all to read it. Maybe it's just where I'm at, but I recommend having some Kleenex. It's the good kind of crying though that stretches you. The kind we all need.

Anyways...we have meet the teacher night tonight. Madi is so excited, because she got the teacher that she wanted; Ms. Brown. (What a great name!) And Hallie will be in the same grade and at the same school as her. Brooke tried to get them in the same class, but Madi's was already full. I think that's neat though. Cheri was Hallie and Madi's first babysitter, and now they're in school together...small world.

School starts Monday! Ready or not...I'll post pictures of the big day!

Reading the shack aye... does that mean you are going to come to the book club?? I would love it if you did! I read it in one night. I am not a big reader and I either do it that way or hardly at all! Hope you can make it. I get back Saturday, lets get together soon..

Yea for Madi & Hallie!!!! I still can't believe our girls are growing up so fast. I still remember Madi walking around my house saying, "Boat, boat, boat"! Everything she said was in a group of three!!!!
Maybe sometime we can get the girls all together again. They had some fun times when they were little.

That is hard to believe that it was a year ago that you were here. Tell Madi that Jenny, not her aunt said I hope she has a great first day of school!

The Shack is probably one of the best books I've read. I LOVE IT! Can't wait to read more of your thoughts on it when you're finished. Hope Madi has a great first day of school!

I came over by way of Michelle's blog. She recently posted, and no one has stopped by her blog. She needs some encouragement...and I saw that you had commented on her previous post. Here is her address:

I keep hearing about the book "The Shack". I will try to pick up a copy!
