Story of My Life - Days 4, 5, & 6

Link up here!

Getting caught up!
Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
1 Corinthians 13, 4-7, 13

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
I truly love this quote. It reminds me what true love is. Not juts the love in my marriage, but between friends, my faith, and my family. It reminds me that I am worthy of those that truly love me, and of how I should love others. I know it's kind of cheesy, but this was read at my wedding. I think it's a beautiful quote.

Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member.
Well, this may come as kind of a shock to her, but I am really appreciate lately of my bloggy friend Katie. Although I've never met her in person, she has been there lately when I've had a serious post that I needed to sort it with either words of encouragement or affirmation. As I struggle with my "role" as a military spouse, she reminds me that I'm not alone, and that I am stronger than I think. She may not know it (obvs she does now!), but comments from her and from others have given me courage sometimes to carry on through the hard stuff. I'll forever be grateful, and hope that one day we'll be able to meet in real life. I just know we'd be besties.

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
Gosh, that's a hard one. When not at work, I fill my time with rescuing and fostering needed pups, volunteering. I also consider myself a lifetime learner, and love discovering new subjects. I swore I would be done with school after my Bachelor's, but went and got a Master's degree. Now, I am looking into getting certified as an ASL translator and working on my German proficiency. The fun never stops.

Oh my! This brought me to tears! Seriously girl! Thank you so much for your sweet, sweet words. No one has ever said such kind words, bloggy, or otherwise. Wow! This totally made my day/week/month/year. I guess you never know how much a smile or I'm thinking of you helps, until you're on the receiving end. Thank you so much! And yes, we're going to be besties in real life, so get those orders ASAP! :)
