Maribeth….

Good gracious! I just got home from a friend’s birthday dinner.  When I entered the door of the restaurant…Elrod Sims was the first to greet me. I was so surprised! He lives in Vietnam now and the last time I laid eyes on him was at the bar across the parking lot from where we were hugging right now… He bought me a glass of wine and then  I had to leave to pick up kiddies from school…and then…he was only here in town for a few days.

It is supernatural to me….how our energies intertwine when we least expect it.  God does that…I believe.

In two days…it’ll be Maribeth Fonda’s 35th birthday and James Oscar Taylor’s birthday too…not sure what decade for him…as he might just be stuck in a time from his favorite band. He IS a fan of music and especially lyrics.  Tonight…it was not my birthday but he gifted me with a Rolling Stones t-shirt he’d had in his trunk for 2 years! He truly lives and breathes music! Maribeth though… well, she’s some kinda special.   She was never gonna get married….never gonna have children…   BUT… she invented the PhickleTini, was my husband’s and my favorite barkeep AND she got married and now is a great mom to TWO children! She’s a perfect reminder that we just can’t plan our own lives….if we wanna live out our God-given purpose.  Maribeth was always pretty but even prettier now that she’s a mom… she just glows!

WHAT IF I NEVER EDITED ANYTING AND JUST POSTED STUFF LIKE THIS????????   LIKE AN OPEN DIARY….

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARIBETH!
