Friday's Letters

Dear Cutie Pie Husband of Mine,
  I had fun with you at Steak and Shake.  Actually, I have fun with you wherever we are. But you know that already don't you? xoxo

ps. Remember those "bargain half price shakes" that enticed me to get my own instead of sharing with you?  Yeah me too.  I also remember laying on the couch in agony for an hour after eating it. Ughh.  So NOT worth it.  (never again...remember that. OK?)

Dear Jennifer,
  This time last week, we were enjoying a cup of cup together catching up on all that the Lord has done and is doing in our lives.  What a great time of fellowship!  Praising God's faithfulness with the redeemed is my fave!  Psalm 107

 Dear Thrift Store,
  I never know what I'm gonna find when I go treasure hunting....this time I found Truth. Thank you for the two blue tags I found for less than a dollar but more than that thanks for this great reminder.  


Dear Farmer's Market Restaurant,
  Nick loves your smoked meat but my fave is your salad bar.  For obvious reasons.

Dear Rebeca,
 Thank you for the sweetest of sweet packages that I had waiting for me in my stack of mail.  Your Random Acts of Craftiness that you are doing, where you send handmade goodies that you create to unsuspecting recipients is a BLESSING.  This little beauty and her message couldn't have come at a more perfect time.

 Dear Box of "Too Small Clothes",
     It was fun stumbling across you in our storage while  looking for my winter boots.  Everything fits now so I will have to change your label which is pretty awesome.  And its super nice being reunited with some of my favorite t-shirts.  I haven't seen this guy in years.

Dear Hannah,
   You bless me daily with your friendship.  I don't know what "the girls" would do without your expertise on most subjects that we text about. You really blessed me when you sent me some of your new hoops!  And mint and gold! ....you know me well.  Love you.  And congratulations on your shop reaching 1000 sales!!  I mean...wow!

 Dear Rosalyn,
  Your Honey loves seeing you create.  You are growing up so fast that it blows my mind!  You will be having a birthday before we know it and will turn 5!!  How did this happen so fast?   I'm so glad that you promised me that no matter how big you get, you will always be my Toot Toot.  Don't forget that ok?


Dear Lydia,
   Thank you for cutting my hair.  I forgive you for the 3 inches you whacked trimmed....I can see your wisdom in your doing so when I have styled it each day... it's much much healthier. So there you go....Are we bff's again now?



Dear Pastor of mine,
   I loved your illustration of your new gun you shared on Sunday.  About how excited you were and blessed by the gift you had received from your dad when he gave it to. And that some people around you don't share in the excitement or joy because guns and hunting and that stuff just ain't their thing. (ouch).  But then you paralleled it with the things of the Lord....how sometimes others aren't as excited about what we've gleaned from God's word or something He has shown or taught us when we go to tell them.....He's just not what they are most interested in at the moment ....He's not "their thing". And that we shouldn't take it personal...just keep being excited and sharing with others what brings us joy.    Two things hit home with me from that...I need to be excited about your "things"cuz you are excited.  And I must keep in check the things that excite me most...meaning it should be Jesus.  Thank you Bro Nick for always pushing me to be more like Christ.

Dear Elizabeth,
   You are beautiful!!  When I saw this picture of you it inspired me to dig out my Fall clothes and boots.  Also, I miss you so much and can't wait til our visit to come see you.  It's gonna be great.

Dear Lauren...excuse me...Mrs. McMullen,
   Wowza!  You are kicking off  Wifeyhood with a bang.  This pic made your daddy hungry and it made us both proud!   Way to go with taking care of that man of yours.  Can't wait for our invitation to the feast.  ;)

Dear Balloons,
  You are still hanging around since July at Lydia's birthday.   I'm gonna take you down soon though.  Just preparing you.   I mean, Christmas is right around the corner and I don't think you will blend in with my decorations.
ps.  I see you checking me out Nick Holden.

Dear married daughters of mine,
   I love running into y'all at Walmart. Or anywhere really. It made my day.



Dear Grandkids of mine,
  I miss you more than Mr. Bill's donkeys love gumdrops.  Can't wait to see y'all and snuggle with y'all and just hang out with y'all.  It's gonna be fun city!

Happy Friday y'all!
                                                          
linking up with jeannette today for her InstaFriday.
