Weekday Update

Life is good right now. Last night I was at choir practice and I realized that I am truly happy in this season of my life. Yes, there are alot of unknowns. Yes, I am sleepy alot. Yes, we are still in the waiting game when it comes to buying a house. But I am happy. I love my family. I love my friends. I LOVE my husband. I love my job. I love my church. God is good.

Grant flew to Dallas this morning. He'll fly back late tonight. He just had several meetings to go to today. I'm so proud of him and how much he is accomplishing at his job. He works really hard and I can tell that the Lord is using him in many ways. We are blessed!

This weekend is a very important wedding in my life. When I was a little girl, I had a childhood playmate named Jonathan. (Dare I say, I think I was actually friends with him before I was friends with Lindsee!). As we got older, we stopped having sleep overs (cause that was inappropriate!) and continued to be friends. There was a season in 8th or 9th grade where we got on each others nerves so much we became more like brother and sister and less like friends. But as we matured we became very very close friends. Through highschool and college, he was one of those people that was always there and knew the real me. He's never been afraid to put me in my place or call me on stuff I need to be called out on. My dear friend has been through ALOT in his life. I was with him senior year when we got the news that his dad had suddenly died. Walking with him through that season was so hard. So much junk has happened and if there is anyone I know that has a "right" to be mad at God, it would be him. But he isn't. He has made lemonade out of lemons.

After Grant and I got married (Jonathan was an usher in my wedding and walked my mom down the aisle), I knew that me and Jonathan's "relationship" had to look a little different. Mainly because we moved to Louisiana, but also because clearly my husband is the only man in my life. Grant has always respected our friendship though and has no issue with our monthly chats. When Jonathan and Tara started getting serious, he called to tell me all about it. And when other happenings have happened in our lives, we try to keep each other up to date. He's my brother.

This Saturday, he is getting married. To a wonderful, beautiful, funny, godly girl that isn't afraid to put him in his place. I have to admit, this whole thing has been very emotional for me. I'm just so proud of him and so happy for him. He has a great girl, he just bought a house, he has a great job..... I just am thrilled. I'm pretty sure I'm going to sob like a baby though during the wedding. Thank you, water proof mascara!!

By the way, this new weather is to die for!! Loving it. I LOVE rainy days, I think I would prefer it to sunny days. Oh gosh, what do you think that says about me? I'm truly a happy, optimistic, cheery person but I do love the rain. I think it makes everyone slow down and calm down and it's just so peaceful.

It is chilly in my office though. I've been trying to convince my boss to let us wear a Snuggy at our desks. I'm thinking the leopard print doesn't look very professional, however, if we got the solid blue ones and monogrammed our company name on it.. perhaps that would work? He hasn't agreed yet. I'll keep trying.
