Happy Saturday Friends! Does anyone have any fun plans!
I was going to take Ivy and Loki to a wine bar to meet up with Glamma today but Loki wasn’t feeling 100% last night...been up since 3:30am.
I am not used to going through a big bag of food a week and had to make an emergency food pick up at our local natural pet food place to pick up a bag since we didn’t have quite enough for dinner before our (now) weekly Chewy box came and of course the store had the same brand same formula just not the same flavor. I feel so bad. I bought an extra bag on Chewy so we always will have a backup. We are going to rest up and cuddle today and try tomorrow!
Something amazing happened the other night. I'm pretty #antisocialsocialclub. I am an introvert by nature and prefer keeping company with the potted plants than with people. When I heard @triciagoyer was going to be close to my home I knew I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet her in person. Between being a prolific author and an all around amazing witness for heaven's grace and kindness, she has been such an influence in my life. So I girded up courage and went.
Some of you know I've struggled with identity since my husband passed, and struggled with finding who I am. I'm just Christina. Nothing more. Nothing less. Nothing outstanding or special or significant. Well, as we arrived my introverted-self kind of held back. A lady came up to me and ask my name. My response, Christina Rich. She smiled turned to her friends and said, oh this is Christina Rich, she's an historical romance author with Harlequin. Folks, I almost cried. All I want to do write. I have a lot of stories burning in my head waiting to catch the rest of the world on fire. She identified me as an author. I know that isn't who I am, but it is a big portion of who I was created to be and God positioned her in front of me to remind me that Christina is something more than nothing.
Oh, and a huge shout out to our waiter. He was awesome.
