This is a place of ME. This is a place where I will let the walls down and be honest. Joys and stories or tears and heartbreaks, they will all be here. Devotionals to poems, my heart is open to you. I will love well. I will love you and honer you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me. Continue if you dare ;)

Girls, Guys, and Gas Money!

Wow crazy week!
Ok so I grew up with only brothers... and these are some things I thought about guys.

1. All guys love and play sports
2. It's sexy when a girl is stronger than all the guys
3. Hard core chicks are the coolest
4. Acting like a girl drives all the guys crazy

Over the past few weeks I would like to first thank Miss Maggie. She forced me into skirts and "pretty" shirts and curly hair for speech... I hated every min of it, but it turned out for the best in the end... just don't let her know ;)
Then Zack and Josiah. I don't know if Miss Maggie put them up to it or what, but every time I curled my hair, put on heels, a skirt, or girlie earrings... And was totally hating it, they would just simply tell me that it looked good. (btw two of my best friends... neither one plays sports!)
Caleb and Seth dears: Whenever I did something stupid and girlie at work or tried to lift something heavy they were just telling me it was ok. They laughed and enjoyed seeing me act like a girl and they really enjoyed lifting stuff for me.
Lovely Amber. This young lady is sooo a teenage girl! I love her for it! She responds by giggling and squeeking when the guys do something stupid. I love watching that... because the guys love it!! Who would have thunk it?

Those are just a few of the people that have helped me (+ my mommy :D )
But look at that list..... guess what?!!? I'S OK FOR ME TO BE A GIRL AND ACT LIKE ONE!!!! Now I will never be an Amber, that's just not who God made me to be. But today we had a "dress your personality" day... lol gotta love Angela. I had on a pink lacy shirt and pearls. Ya Sarah does not do that! pink... lace... AND... pearls?!?!? one is normally too much but all three!?!

But see the cool thing is that a few people were like "you dressed just normal" and then those guys were like shocked that I was all like girlie. It made my day!
God is really showing my that it's ok to be the Warrior princess he made me to be... but I'm still a princess who can have a prince or two take care of her (not in any bad way!).

But God is the best prince! He is always there knowing when things get hard and telling us it will be ok.

So this week I was running low on money.... and gas. A friend and I went and hung out, not only did they pay for what we were doing, but I got home to ten bucks in my purse for gas money! They wouldn't take it back... So the next day I knew that was just enough to get me to my Spanish class and work. I go to get some gas and my little bro takes the ten and hands me a twenty. God really looks after me in the weirdest ways!

Stupid randomness I know, but it really made my day! That God and my friends all care so much about me. it's really amazing, I really am a lucky GIRL!

Thank you to all who got Sarah interested in pink and lace. Believe it or not, pink was her signature color when she was younger and I had control over her clothes. LOL.

I like seeing you let down that tough girl guard you developed being the only girl. You've always been my princess.

i love you and think you are a princess no matter what!

Be you at all times Sarah. If that's lacy pink - great. If it's black leather - great. If it's make-up or not so much - great. You're the only one who can be you...don't waste your time trying to be anyone else. :)

Besides...we love you the way you are. :)

Adding more love here!! ♥oxoxo♥ ; )
Lol. I think it's really cool how God provided for you! A long while ago, before my style changed into what it is today, I used to be a tomboy believe it or not. I don't know if you remember it, but before I got into makeup and such I didn't care about my hair, clothes, and when I was really little, I'd rather play with my Barbies in the mud I'd create with the hose outside. Lol! I am glad that I could help you (even without meaning to, *wink*), and just wanted to let you know that in my life, it was weird. Once I got into the whole "appearance" thing, I actually tried being one of those "tougher" girls. HA! Yeah, that REALLY worked, not! Lol, I found it annoying, and later realized that people liked me better when I was me - and only me. When I opened up and let go of my stiffness in trying to be what I thought people would like me better as. I don't know if this is similar to what you were saying, but it was my (kinda long, sorry!) take on the matter of "just being the person I truly am." I find it easier, more fun, and more beneficial! And yes, we all DO care about you, TONS! And tons and tons more after that! Lol, just know that, and always keep that in the back of your mind. ;D (P.S. I don't know if this truly applies, but I wanted to say it anyway. Sorry again for the long randomness! Lol!)

Wow ambs! thanks girl! I love you no mater what but I do know that you have really become who you are and that's you, yes you have your "ugly feeling days" we all do but you are beautiful and fun! thanks I love you soooo much!

Amber said...

Thanks. I already know you do, but it's good to have reminders once in a while. ;D And yes, we do have those days, but hey! That's why we're not perfect! I think it'd be boring if we were, and don't really think we could handle a boring world, lol! It's hard enough the way it is! And that's how it shapes us each into unique individuals, each loved by the only one who needs to be perfect. ;D
