He's Turning 31.
How Can That Be???

It seems like just a short while ago that he was this:

........And then this:
And this...........

...............And now he has this:

And all along, we loved him.
Still do.
Happy Birthday B! We are proud to call you son.

I'm Hooked!
In the form of Diet Coke...
With pellet ice...and a lid....and a straw.

But other than that, I'm not picky about it!
At least it's not a milkshake. Right?

I spent my summers growing up at a summer camp, on Lake Lure, in the North Carolina mountains. We recently had a banquet honoring 60 years of camping at this camp! Before the banquet, I was interviewed for a video they were putting together. One of the questions asked was "What has Camp Lurecrest meant to you?" My answer: "Everything". Chapel still looks the same...except no sawdust floor now!!

Spending my summers there, first as a camper, then as a staff member, and in recent years as a volunteer in the kitchen and office, has molded and shaped my life into what it is today. It is at camp that I met my savior and it is at camp that I learned about His grace. I have lifelong friends that I met at camp. If you've ever been on staff at a summer camp, you know the bond that develops working together 24/7!

Yeh, I know, camp makes you do crazy things!!!

This is the view from the boat dock.......Good morning Lord!

Treasure hunt on the volleyball court!!

The BLOB! Nope...Never have. Never will.

View from Chapel

I am so very thankful for my humble beginnings and for the Lord meeting me right where I was. My life was and is in His hands. He used Camp Lurecrest as a means to my heart. I am forever blessed!

There just aren't many things in life dearer than close friends. After God and family, close friends rank way up there in importance in my life! I have a group of girlfriends who mean the world to me. We go way......back. And we've gone through LOTS of things together. Some were bad. Most were good.

Sometimes we allow a daughter, G, visited us on this night!
Our BEACH BUDDY title began when we took a beach trip, over 20 years ago. It's been an annual spring trip! It's on these trips that we play, and laugh, and really share our hearts. We also have a motto:
*What happens at the beach, stays at the beach!

For me personally, I owe my BB's big time!! They have been to all my kids weddings....and they were ALL out of town! That includes all the wedding showers and baby showers too........That's what friends are for...and I'll be at all theirs too!
How about you
? Do you have friends that mean the world to you?? Tell them. It will mean the world to them! Love you BB's!
