I packed up my kids, with my best friend and her kids, and went to our lake house, 3 hours away.
Because I don't drive there by myself very often, I kept turning too soon down rural roads that I thought were the correct turns. "This looks right." "I think this is the one." Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. And then I was set straight in my mind about all the times in my life lately that I've thought the exact same thoughts, "This must be right", "Pretty sure this is the road I should take".... only to gently be reminded, "no....just look at the map (MY book) and you'll see the correct turns I've laid out for you. However, I think the hardest lesson was looking in the rearview mirror and looking at the precious faces that were tagging along behind me and watching and learning from my turns, right AND wrong. Thank you for speaking to me sweeet Jesus.

so i haven't posted anything in a while because a) things have been somewhat uneventful and at the same time b) kinna crazy. SO, here's some fun I had yesterday at Owen Stadium with my sweet friend Alyssa whom I've known my whole life. She recently was crowned "Mrs. Oklahoma" and is doing an excellent job using her title to spread awareness about her four year old daughter's disease, Cystic Fibrosis. We had a blast watching all the participants climb stairs (we did some too) and it was really fun just hanging (and going to sonic twice).
