Friends and Football

This weekend was full of family and friends. Sometimes I think back to when Caleb was little. I didn't invest time in anything but my husband, child and work. My life was pretty empty. Over time I started filling it with Jesus, friends, more family, and love. Lots and lots of love. I am filled with so much joy when I think of how blessed I am to have the love of so many friends and family. I don't take any of it for granted because I have known what it's like to be without these friendships.

This weekend I worked a benefit sale for our friends that were in the car accident in October. Ryan and Caleb had a boys weekend. Ryan and Caleb worked on the Jeep and played on the four wheelers while I was away. I loved coming home to see the outside of the house decorated for Christmas and find my husband working in the barn. He has turned into such a country boy since we've moved... I've gotta admit it makes my heart beat even faster....

All three boys were finally together for the first time since the accident. It was a little tough to see them play and not worry about them getting hurt. I think we're all so over-cautious with them right now. These boys are so tough that they know no difference. It made my heart so happy to finally see our boys back together. Caleb was thrilled! 

I have such a special place in my heart for this sweet boy. He's my little boy's best friend. He took my son under his wing in football and in school when no one else did. He has the biggest heart. Before the accident, he'd run up to me and hug me before school every day. I've missed him a lot. Yesterday was the first time I'd hugged him since I held his hand the day he was pulled out of the car. I've waited a long time for that hug. Praise God that day came!!!! 

And this is their mama! Ashley and I have a lot in common and I am so thankful for our new friendship. We had started building it before all this mess happened and I am so glad our boys are buddies! She has a beautiful heart and is raising amazing boys.

Caleb is obsessed with his four wheeler. He is amazed his mama knows how to ride one and knew how to ride one before he was born. Apparently he thought I had no life before he came along...

We wrapped up our football season this weekend with our banquet. I'm so sad this was our last weekend wearing the jersey.

Our church had a Christmas special this morning and it was beautiful. I got to sit with some of my Zumba® sisters. They are so pretty! I'm so happy they sat beside me early on a Sunday morning!
