It’s an anniversary of sorts.  Not one to really write home about, but an anniversary all the same…



The Monday Sleepies

Posted: April 28, 2008 in Uncategorized

I don’t know what else to call it. But I know it is a weekly thing for me …


 I cannot put my head on the pillow tonight without a big shout out to Randy Cook.  

Now, to those of you who follow my husband’s blog, you know that Joe is a big fan of Crossroads Community Church.  Randy serves as the senior pastor there.   Rarely do days pass that Joe and Randy aren’t texting and/or talking.  Joe considers Randy a close friend and pastoral confidant.  

Well, I get to claim him first.  

I’ve written about ‘ol Randy before.  He and I were in school together from 7th grade to high school graduation.  Then we followed each other to junior college for two years, then transferred and received our bachelor’s degrees together.  There’s not too many folks in my life that can claim that.  Wahoo – something to brag about!

Randy was not part of our reunion last night, but he should’ve been there.  I’ve promised him there’s an invite in the email inbox for the next time we all reconnect.  

Randy was on his way to Atlanta tonight and gave us a call.  He had seen photos from last night’s reunion gathering and had tons to say about them.  (It was all good of course – especially the part about me!)   Randy is one of the funniest people I know.  Of course, his funny business in high school could’ve gotten me kicked out if I hadn’t learned to control my laughter.

Today, 30 years later, Randy may be a bit more “distinguished”,  but he’s still the same ‘ol Randy to me. And truthfully, I’m pretty proud of that guy.  We’ve come a long way, baby.  At least that’s what they say.

Safe travels, friend.  Now I can go to sleep.


Staying in touch

We all vowed to stay in touch … I pray we do. Here are a few photos of me and some of the gang. I hope some of my peeps drop by and comment here. I love them so much… here’s some of our story.

I have been living in the past … at least for the last 24 hours.


Cute as a button, as they say

Here she is, my little prom girl. We had an incredible day of preparation, just the two of us. Then, we entrusted her over to the boyfriend for the evening. I just know they are having fun. And in a flash, it too, will be over. It’s just the nature of senior year.

You anticipate it for literally 12 years. And in an instant, it is finished. Adulthood begins to set in.

I know she is ready – although I feel her anxiety from time to time. But it is time for next steps, whether we are ready or not.

Next step – graduation!

Busy ‘ol weekend
