I've enjoyed her so much! We stay up most nights way into the wee hours of the morning discussing everything together and giggling ourselves silly. Not only do we have a sweet mother-daughter relationship, but we've become really, really, really very good friends.
She put the whole thing in God's hands. And He did what He does and blew both of our minds with His answer. She was offered a managers position at the new Free People store that is opening in Birmingham in February. She flies out to Austin in 2 1/2 weeks for the training. Just when we thought that she may be staying home after all and that Birmingham wasn't in the plan... He ups and surprises us and turns everything topsy-turvy. She found this out 2 days ago... and she's been on full speed ahead every since. Woo... there's lots to get ready before then... but it looks like this thing is really going to happen.
And so now I sit here thinking about it. Because it's now time to put my big girl panties on and let that precious bird of mine fly out again. Wow, sometimes it's hard being a mom..... even though, I am a very proud one! Free People, huh? Who would have thought? I'll say this though, because of Jesus Christ and all that He's done in her life, she's now one of the free-est people I know! Free People seems to perfectly fit her!
