let me just say it's a good thing most of this was already in my drafts
because this head cold or whatever yuck i have is making me feel real fuzzy.
wanted to share a couple of books i'm currently reading.
i was a huge Judd's fan in the late 80's and early 90's
and have always thought ashley was such a sophisticated beautiful actress.
for the last 10 years she's been quite the humanitarian traveling through asia
& africa as an advocate for women in the sex trafficking industry
and others in poverty.
while she & i are on two completely different planets spiritually,
i am truly enjoying her memoir.
the last calender year has been an eyeopener for me regarding the HIV/AIDS crisis
the orphan crisis and the sickening amount of slavery that still exists.
with events such as Passion & my latest passion with Noonday Collection
i'm continually trying to educate myself in these matters.
speaking of the Passion Conferences
i'm also reading Matt Redman's "mirror ball".
incidentally , matt's wife beth is also an advocate and passionately involved
in the A21 campaign
& for more light reading i'm also enjoying the book club with edie.
all my advanced placement literature taking daughter's jaws dropped when i informed
them i would be reading The Odyssey.
& speaking of justice,
i'm loving how all of my chatter is actually somewhat connected,
my friend ruth
owner of Carol & Company
is preparing for a marathon. a full marathon. not a wimpy half like i've run.
but 26.2 miles.
she's selling these super cool lenny & eva cuff bracelets
free shipping, & the proceeds are going to World Vision.
i mean come on.
you can wear a great bracelet & help bring clean water to children around the world.
read here for more information
and now for just a little random life in the last few weeks.
i'm loving jeanne's latest bag and feel very cute at publix when i cruise in for my daily
groceries. yes i still have yet to master shopping with a list. in advance.
justin's chocolate hazelnut butter served with a banana.
rockstar ballerina being fitted for another pair of pointe shoes.
i love having a dancer in the house again.
always excited to see us
fear not. he doesn't live outside.
i have all the hair on my hardwoods to prove his existence inside our home.
skinny cords at target. 23 bucks.
super cute & comfy.
after spending the day trying on skinnies
i was prompted to check a fashion statement with one of my college girls.
proof that we all need to have relationships
with people at least half our age. at all times.
letter day from our little man in uganda
is always a highlight.
sweet little guy. listen to what he said through his letter interpreter...
"he sends greetings to savannah, madison, emily and caroline
& he's glad he has so many sisters.
"he's very happy to be a part of your family"
"his family loves you so".
alrighty my friends
i'm on day three of some kinda yuck that is completely kicking my tail.
i'm crawling back into bed & spending the morning with skeeter & minny
