Birds of a Feather

I do not go looking for new friends. Don't get me wrong, I love meeting new people and consider myself outgoing. But life is full and I have trouble making time for extended family and the wonderful friends I already have.

But last week, God gently dropped a wonderful gift in my already-full nest. Nicole! And I do believe that God went to the same "parts closest" when He created each of our creative, nesting personalities. We speak the same creative language. We have the same eye for accessorizing. We shop the same stores and can rattle off current inventory. We share a similar wit. We're both mothers. We both know Jesus.

And our nests are 100 yards from one another.

Birds are social; they communicate using visual signals and through calls and songs. How wonderful to be singing my own little nesting song in my own little tree, and hear another singing the same song.

I think our singing tickles God even more than it tickles us.

After what seems like a lifetime of searching for someone who values toile, accessories, and chipping paint...God arranges a meeting of two kindred spirits. I couldn't be more blessed, and I am so thankful for you, Cathy! Tears well in my eyes, I am so honored to be a part of "Breathless Expectation." May we continue to treasure our friendship, "nest" and fill our happy homes with love.
