It's been a year since I began this crazy journey. I started my blog as an alternative means to journal about our family life. I've always kept a journal... sometimes handwritten and sometimes on the computer but for some reason I wanted to do something different for a season and so our journey began at dumptrucksandteacups.blogspot.com.
I remember the day after I signed up and did my first post, I was sitting with my sister and decided to show her what I had done. We both sat there and laughed. I didn't know if it would last, if it would take too much time away from my family, causing me to revaluate or maybe I just would not enjoy it...
I didn't realize though that along the way I would find some really special friends and I love that it is something that I can share with my Mom and my Sister.
While I don't drink coffee, I still enjoy spending time with my friends at a coffee shop enjoying tea of an iced chai. Kinda funny, don't you think?! But, I love the encouragement.... the challenge... the life that comes from our time together, whether it is from talking on our roles as wives and mothers, or discussing the Word of God. That's why I appreciate you. You challenge me and encourage me in this journey.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Thank you for helping sharpen me.
Thank you for being a friend.
