The Stuff I Forgot To Mention

Thanks for your sweet comments on Monday’s post. After I hit “publish” I thought, Oh, I believe I just overshared – so I appreciate your kindness more than you know.  Y’all are the best.

I about to get in the bed because, well, CALL ME MAMAW, bt I wanted to pass along a few links that I meant to mention earlier in the week. I realize that everybody’s life would go on quite normally if I’d just go ahead and surrender to some sleep, but I keep feeling like there’s something I haven’t finished (well, you know, in addition to a big ole deadline, among other things), so that means it is time to make a list.

– I am crazy about a NEEDTOBREATHE song called “Multiplied,” and the new video for it is gorgeous.

– “In a way, I love the poverty. I have to face it every day. And inside that poverty, I have to face myself. What do I hold dear? What are the things I just can’t live without? And do those things really matter?

That’s just the tip of the iceberg-o-wisdom in this article.

– Edie wrote about 10 Ways to Make 40 the New Fabulous, and I learned some things. Oh yes ma’am I did.

– If you grew up in the 70s or 80s, you will get such a kick out of my friend Joni’s post about Casey Kasem’s Top 40 countdown.

All righty. It’s not a huge list, but I’m ALL DONE.

See y’all tomorrow!

  1. NEEDTOBREATHE is the best band ever. Are you going to see them in Bham in Sept?? I’m hoping that’s the one I make it as they are not coming to MS! I just have to find someone to go with me. And possibly buy my tickets. That is right around my birthday. HEHEHE

  2. Can I just speak for well, everyone and say we just LOVE you??!!!!
    Thank you for continuing to write and share and thanks for all the REALNESS.
    Anxiously awaiting your next book– but no pressure. :) WE can wait as long as it takes.
