I'm so glad Tamra found Shabbyblogs.com! I was wanting something new for my blog. And don't you love my new photo at the top? I think Amy took this at our family reunion last July. It is 6 of my 7 grandchildren. To me, it looks like a photo you'd find advertising children's clothing. It looks like they've been posed. My only regret is that Olivia isn't in the photo....but she was probably napping at the time. Or maybe not, come to think of it. Amy, can you photoshop her in--right under Caitlin's left hand? That would be perfect!
I love new things. And yet I don't like change. I don't know where I got this incongruous behavior. If you came to my house today, you'd find my furniture in the exact spot it was put in 2 1/2 years ago when I got it. I get new things and yet I'm not one to change things up. Kind of an oxymoron. (I love using big words.)
My friends took me shopping this week and I got lots of new clothes. I love new clothes. But when I go shopping by myself, I tend to get one shirt in 3-4 different colors. Seriously. Can I have a witness, daughters?
I love going to a new small group. But once the group is formed, I don't like for it to change. (Can I say that?)
But I have a husband and friends who push me towards change. I've tried to learn to go with the flow, be fluid, be vaporous even. But there's a part of me that will always want and need roots. God just created me that way, I think. There's a homing device that was placed in me at birth.
But change it is. I changed my blog today. Thanks, Tamra!
