3 Facts for the Day

7 05 2013

1. It’s no secret to anyone that knows me that my childhood could be considered far from ideal. If you didn’t go to school with me, then have you ever seen the movie “Mean Girls” with Lindsay Lohan? Haha. Nah, I won’t blame my pitiful high school existence on anyone else. When it came down to it, I guess I was just an odd little kid. I had to find my place in this world, and youth is a difficult time to find yourself period. It got a little easier as I went along. I had some really good friends in my journey. There weren’t many, because I was selective I suppose. (when i wasn’t trying too hard to fit in). Even as I got older, I discovered I’d rather hang out with myself than people I didn’t have anything in common with. As a small child, I had no siblings or friends to play with since we moved so much. I did have an imaginary friend named Carla. As I got further into elementary school, I had one best friend. Her name was Amy and we were inseparable. In high school, I had people I hung out with, but once again, just one friend I could share my true heart with and just be me with no fear of judgement. Chasity.
2. In college, life became even weirder. As you get older you’re supposed to start knowing who you are in life. I had always been a late bloomer, and I felt even more out of place as I tried to discover where I fit. In my early twenties I had the opportunity to become friends with a wonderful girl. Mary and I would be like peas and carrots (to quote a favorite movie). The great thing about becoming friends with Mary was the fact that she introduced me to the life of a Christian walk. I knew about going to church, but she talked about having a relationship with Jesus. She spoke about God like they were relatives or something, and it really intrigued me at the time. There were many great things about our friendship, but a wonderful fact that made it stand out was that it ushered in a time of my life where I would start finding where I fit. I wouldn’t find it because of the new church I attended with her, or the new relationships forged, but because I would begin to see myself as Christ saw me. With His eyes, I could finally see my different qualities as unique characteristics as a child of God. This is not to say that happened overnight. God would begin that work in me then, and He’s still working on it now.
3. Today, my friend Mary came to visit me. We don’t see each other much anymore. We are both married with children, and life just gets busy. We live in different towns. We also are both very close to our families, and spend most of our free time with them. My husband is my best friend now, and I’m sure her husband is hers as well. The great thing about us though, is that we can always and easily pick back up like not a day has passed. There’s no hard feelings over time lapsed, and conversation flows easily. She will always hold a special place in my heart. She might just kill me for the picture I’m using in this post, but it’s a perfect example of us. We could be crazy and have fun without worrying about what other people thought of us. Thank you dear friend for introducing me to the fact that I’m a child of the King.
That is all 🙂
