Being a lifelong learner.

January 21, 2013
This weekend, we spent some time making some amazing, amazing friends. I don’t think we stopped smiling the entire time. These ladies were hilarious, sharp, and so wise. Also, there was a lot of sass being thrown around… and you know how I feel about sass. 
They had so much life to share, and more than anything, they loved being listened to. And really, how simple a service is that to provide? And how many times a day am I missing that opportunity?
We learned so much, and in the words of McCall’s cute grandma, who we also got to spend some time with, 
“We all have things to learn, no matter where we are, no matter how we learn them.”

1. THANK YOU FOR YOUR BLOG LOVE. SERIOUSLY though. You have made my whole weekend with all of your nice comments. You are such a kind, genuine person and to have validation from you means the world. Especially when it comes to GHayward giving me the eye at the grocery store…mmmgurl. 😉 JUST KIDDING.

2. This is absolutely perfect. What a fun way to spend the weekend! We have so much to learn about love, service, life in general and how great to learn that from those who have grown wise through many years of experience and lessons learned.

3. You are a beautiful person, Shelby. I'm glad to have you back in the blogging world and for the wise words you share. Thank you for always being there for so many and blessing the lives of those around you with your vibrant spirit.
