on our way to Disney.....but didn't make it
John and Sheri Roster and their kiddos and our family decided to head to Disneyworld between games....well you have to understand, we headed their first on Tuesday, but had to pull over because the rain was so bad. I looked at Richard and said, "when you can't see the road, is it really a good day to actually head to disneyworld?"
I am not high maintenance. BUT EVEN I HAD NO DESIRE TO HEAD TO DISNEYWORLD IN THE RAIN.
So bring on Wednesday...
We headed with the Rosters again to the "place where dreams come true"
We were sitting at the stoplight. Sitting. Minding our own business. An idiot apparently didn't see the stoplight was RED...and slammed into the back of the Roster's vehicle. (Kensey Rae was in the back of their car.)Their vehicle pushed our vehicle about three feet forward.
Needless to say....our dream didn't come true....:~)
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!
