Dinner with some dear Friend's

For starter's, I am having a really hard time sitting down and blogging about myself. I feel like it is all about me, me, me. I know this is my blog but I just have not been able to sit down and share what I have been up to. I just could not stand reading my own blog anymore. When I have the time to sit down, I want to read other blogs instead of posting myself. I want my life to be a reflection of what God is doing through me and not what I am doing to bring attention to myself. The reason I started blogging in the first place, was to write down special things about the people I love. My God, my family and friends. When I do pass on to heaven someday I want others to know how special they were to me. Like the post about my mom, I love her dearly and I want her to always be able to know what a special lady she is and why I think so. I pray you all bear with me as I change my focus from myself to other's. This l includes posting about my blogging friends. I will still post what I am up to but not in an everyday post.

Here is a little bit of what I have been up to this month:

I've been busy this month! With all the graduation party's, my daughter being home, my husband and kid's going to camp, I took on more work, I feel like I have been going non-stop for the passed few weeks. Today, I crashed! I never sleep until 10:00 a.m. but I have to confess, I did today. I was supposed to go Aldis grocery shopping but I asked my husband if he thought it would be ok if waited and went on Wednesday. As I am typing this in I just remembered that Aaron is supposed to get his Wisdom teeth out tomorrow. I guess shopping will have to wait until Thursday.

After my long weekend's I like to rest on Monday's. I invited a couple over that use to go to our church years ago. They were at my friend's daughter graduation party so we set up having dinner together last night. (I thought if I did not do it right away, I will never have them over) My house was a mess after the weekend and I had to shop for food but it all came together last night. Our friend's have a adopted four girls and they have the two foster children at the moment. The six girls are just adorable! My husband put our pool up this weekend (He put up two different pools three times, Hee, Hee. This will be a story for another day) so the girls and my sons all played in the pool, while we fellowship and got caught up on things. Tom (the husband) and I worked together for year's in Jr. Choir. Tom did all my speaking for me. He has a heart of gold, when he gave an invitation to accept Christ after the plays he would speak from the heart and I think I cried every time. Life goes on and we meet new friend's but this family will always be dear to me. No picture's due to the fact Boaz lost my camera.

Friend's come and friend's go but true friendship's last forever.

Whichever direction you decide to go with your blog, I will still be a fan.

I agree with Mike. Your blog is supposed to be your own thing so others can either read it or move on to something else. I enjoy reading the different things you write about.

It sounds like a fun evening. It's always so great to spend time with old and dear friends.
As far as the blog goes, I don't ever think you sound self-centered. It's fun to be able to catch up with each other's lives. You're an inspiration to me - just reading about all the ways you serve others. Your blog blesses us in so many ways.

God bless

I am so proud of you making time for people rather than stuff. People are the important things and I am sure those whose lives you have touched in the past few weeks were blessed and are grateful that you are who you are---God's.

We like you, Lori, or we would have moved on. Some read more, others write more.
I like to write. It is nice that you have evaluated what what you are writing. Nice for me because it will help me think about what I am writing.
I do like to read what the bloggers are doing, for sure better than reading old jokes being passed on again and things like that.
I also enjoy your devotionals and on-line Bible study. But I don't read many blogs for long with just those.
Regardless of what direction you go, I will still feel I am reading your life story, real-time.
Some of us are better than others doing that, but it is still generally there. [I like to keep people guessing a little and not read the real me too closely. Unless I'm serious, most times that shows through as I'm a pretty sincere fellow when needed.]
