Smile!

Carrie gave me this award. I met Carrie in college. We were in Kappa together, so of course there are lots of fun memories there. I also taught with her sister and mom at Vandelia for a while too. So I got to know her family some. Carrie is a mom to three precious kids, who are way closer together in age than mine. (bless her heart!) And she has the MOST beautiful alto voice! I love to hear her sing!!! Although Carrie and I don't see each other often or talk on a regular basis I do know that it's been a tough year for her and family as they lost Pam (her mother in law) to cancer. I second what Lauren said about her. Carrie is a strong woman, and she probably is stronger than she believes herself to be.

You can go to her blog and read the rules. And like I usually do, I'm breaking them. I'm only nominating one person, and I'm not saying her name. I'm not trying to be secretive, I just know that not everyone blares their soul to the world like I do. So, in an effort to respect privacy...I'm being discreet!!!


Okay...so my friend. I could just cry about how great she is...maybe a smile would be better. :) She's awesome. She is the epitome of a strong woman. She has been through a lot, still continues to go through a lot, but carries herself with such class and dignity that I only hope to emulate. She has taught me how to move out, move up, and move on. AND know you're better for it.


God most definitely placed her in my life for a reason. She has helped me grow, but she has also been an example to me. By me watching her, I have learned to much about myself and in turn so much about life. My life is blessed in many ways by her very presence! YOU make me smile, and I thank God for you!!!

As I always say... It's worth living through if you get a story out of it. ;)

God is Good - and it's only going to get better!
