Day 4...and game 2.
Well...we lost. We played hard. Kensey Rae played her heart out, but it just wasn't enough. Alabama got the best of us. We are playing Maryland tonight at 6:00 Eastern. I hear that it will be another tough game. Bummer. I was really proud of them though, we were down by 30 points and they never once gave up. We fought to the buzzer..and that is all you can ask out of them. Kensey Rae is number 13.
Good question! I am a woman who is married to my high school sweetheart. Richard and I are working on 19 years of marriage and have two great kids- Cody and Kensey Rae. They are surely a reminder that God's blessings flow from heaven above! I am a woman who desires to have it all together, but rarely does. I love to spend time with family and friends and find that my favorite memories are those that are just simple days of being together. Over the last year I have discovered that maybe God is in more control than I am- who would have thought? I have also discovered that apparently I am becoming my mother, and that I tend to lose my sunglasses that are on my head and the keys that I am carrying around in my hand. Contentment is a good thing and something I needed to learn and simple isn't all that bad. I have a faithful Lord who has in my life--carried me, held me, walked with me, chased me down, comforted me, blessed me, disciplined me, forgiven me, gave me "the look", cried for me, cried with me, laughed with me, listened to me, taught me, fought for me, and loved me. Thank you Jesus, for just being you.
I am certain I didn't do a thing to deserve this blessed life, but I am so thankful I have it!
