Here is ME:
Wife for 8 (HOLY COW!) years
Mama to 4 children
Works round the clock for free
Haven't finished my degree in communications
Loves to write
Love to sing
Extreme extrovert...borderline psychotic
Like to run and exercise
Finally managed to keep a plant alive for more than 2 months...THIS year
Here is my closest friend: (that's not My Love!)
Wife for 8 years
Has her bachelors and masters....she's basically brilliant
Former active duty military
Possesses a green thumb to make Martha Stewart jealous
Excellent at serving othersQuiet personality
On paper, people would assume we would not be good friends.
She has seen the world....I've seen lots of labor and delivery rooms.
She is highly educated....I poorly managed my time in college.
But you know what?
Everybody would be wrong. Dead wrong.
What this woman's perspective on God, life, homemaking, relationships, and femininity has added to my life is completely impossible to measure.
For some reason our culture thinks we must be in the same phases...dealing with EXACTLY the same problems....with the same background....to be relevant to one another.
And that is just not true. That is post-modern thought seeping into our relationships. The idea is that someone can't walk in my shoes - but they at least need to be wearing the same style for us to connect and bond. Heaven forbid if they purchased their shoes in a different store!
I may be mephisto sandals - but that doesn't mean I can't learn from some pointy-toe-manolo blahniks.
Basically the point of this post is - stop judging those leopard print heels....take a second to actually try them on. You just might learn something about yourself....and make an unexpected friend along the way.
