So Much Fun!

Jamey, Nathan and I went to visit Jason Simpson today at the TV Station (abc3340 in Hoover, Alabama). I really enjoyed myself. Up until the last 3 or 4 months, I haven't been in touch with Jason since High School. It is so nice to know that he's doing so well, and he is still as nice, down-to-earth, and funny as I remember.

Life (in general) tends to change people's personalities for the worse. So many people, especially Christians it seems, are bitter or resentful nowadays, no matter how good or bad their situation. You can tell that Jason knows where his strength comes from (The Lord), and that he is taking life in stride. Jamey and I strive to do the same daily. It doesn't always happen, but we try to let the Lord 'grow us' in spite of ourselves. My prayer is that Nathan sees this quality in us and our friends, and that he seeks the Lord daily in his life as he gets older.

Jamey and Nathan really enjoyed themselves today. We got to sit in on the Noon Day news broadcast to see how things worked during the show. Jamey's favorite part of the day was getting to be at the Weather Station, and getting to play with all the Tower Cameras and satellite images between the morning and noon shows. Nathan's favorite part was getting to climb up and down off the stage step! LOL Oh, the joy and simplicity of a two-year-old!

My favorite part was getting to catch up with an old classmate/newfound friend.

I'll post pictures of our trip as soon as I get them.

Favorite Quotes

This is just the starting of a list. I'll add more as I think of them.

First Blog

Okay...I've known what blogs are for a while, but I've never taken the time to actually make one. Well, folks -- here it is. I really need to be cleaning my house right now, but I'm on the computer...lol. (And, yes, I really do 'laugh out loud' most of the time.) I have been married to my best friend since December of 2001. His name is Jamey Parker. We had a little boy in June of 2006 -- we named him Nathaniel Douglas. We call him Nathan, and he is pure joy. I love being a wife and a mommy. I also love teaching, which is what I do for a living. We live in Warrior, Alabama and go to Harmony Baptist Church. It's the church my husband grew up in; and, it's the church in which we were married. Jamey is the church pianist. He also teaches Wednesday night Bible Study to the adults. I teach Wednesday night Bible Study to our church kids (ages 13 and up). I absolutely love my life. God has blessed me so VERY much. I'll write more later as I think of it.
