So, I've realized my purpose on earth.
I was talking to some teacher friends about their trips to Disney World, and it hit me like a brick. (That is a simile--a comparison using "like" or "as".) I am opening a savings account next week called the Disney World fund, and I am taking my nieces there in December of 2011. Yes, it IS a long engagement, but I am certain it is right. Brooklyn is absolutely in love with Cinderella, Snow White, The Little Mermaid, tea parties, and ballerinas. She is all things girl (although, I did force upon her my expectation of athleticism with a basketball goal that I'm not sure she's touched since Christmas.) I'm pretty sure that I NEED to see her face when she sees Disney princesses. She'll flip. It's happening, guys. Ask me about the DW fund when you see me.
I've also decided that I won't settle for less than really talented children. I'm making it my goal to breed some. Anyone know where talented guys hang out?
Something serious on my heart lately is My Utmost for His Highest. I realize this is an old, classic devotional, but I'm just now starting it. You guys. Holy crap. It's changing my life, and every day is so relevant. The concept of "my best for His glory" blows my mind in itself. Please buy it, and put it on your nightstand. You'll be glad you did.
