Your Friend Ruby Wants to Meet You!!!

As we were driving home from our big
3,700+ mile trip on Tuesday
we were playing our usual “Thankful Game”….
One by one the kids went around the car
naming 10 things they were thankful for
from the trip.  The conversation was lively.
We all had a blast.
The turn came to Ruby and Isaiah said,
“Mom!! It’s Ruby’s turn!”
I questioned her, 
“Ruby!  There are so many things from the trip!
What are you thankful for??”
Instantly she signed, 
Everywhere we went she had met many, many friends…
We all cheered for her signing “friends”
and then I said, “What else are you thankful for?”
Again she signed,
Over and over….
Each of her 10 on her thankful list was

  1. I live in the St Louis area, on the Illinois side. You should come visit my family's church. I sure hope to meet Ruby at the Acoffee Shop. I'll have to look up the address.

    1. Ruby asked about Denver, but we're angling across the country after Pagosa. Miss Everlly is turning ONE, so we are partying with that girl and then heading due east…And for the record – I cannot believe I have not hugged your neck yet!! I feel like we've known each other for forever!!

    1. You are *SO* right!! We are trying to figure a route out, but believe it or not, I was wondering if there was a chance we could meet you?? Been wondering it for a few weeks now. {Hence the letter this AM cause I've been thinking so much about you!} Have no idea where you live, just know PA. Email me.

  2. I have been reading your blog for a few months and was so excited to see St. Louis on the list. ( I live in Jefferson City, but would make the trip to meet Miss Ruby) However, I will be in your neck of the woods during that time on vacation 🙁

  3. I am asking God to bring you Raleigh! Also, there are so many instances in which I wish to 'save' one of your blog posts because God is speaking so clearly through them… I wish for a Pinterest or Facebook button on each one. Love you!!!
