Robin at Pensieve is hosting a Blog - Hop party and I decided to hop on in!
Hi bloggies, my name is dawn and I am so glad you hopped by!
I have been married to Dave for 20 years (it sounds long to me too--but it has flown by!) and we have two great kids--a 14 year old daughter I call Pickle, and a 9 year old son I call Bubba. In real life they have real-people names, but these are their actual nicknames. Dave and I also have had the privilege of having another son--Aidan. Aidan only lived for four months before he went to be with Jesus. You can read some of his story here. I am a Children's Ministry Director for our church. This is a part-time job that sometimes is more like full-time--but I LOVE it.
I am in my early 40s and am experiencing all that goes with that--including getting bifocals this year (yikes!). I like to say I feel younger on the inside than I look on the outside. I love my family, diet coke over ice, eating out, living in Colorado, talking, colored pens, a good laugh, and the rare extended moments of quiet. I love Jesus the most.
I call this blog theGoodlife because although God has allowed some trying days for us throughout the years--He redeems everything and makes it Big-G-Good. You can read more about theGoodlife here. I write about life--sometimes I'm serious, sometimes I'm silly. I strive to be real and authentic--even with some of the yucky stuff.
I hope you'll hop back again and we can be blog-friends. And live happily every after. The end.
