Hey, hey there everyone.
This is sorta of one of those random posts that I like to share every once in while.
This past year I happened to make a new friend. Actually it is my husbands best friends fiance.
Her name is Julie and she is one of the strongest women I have ever met.
You see, she lost her husband a few years back to Melanoma.
Young couple, two young children and in fact were together since their early 20’s. The first time I met Julie and she shared her story with me, I cried.
I just can’t imagine losing your husband at such an early stage of your life. He sounded like an amazing husband and Father.
In fact, when her husband was dying, he told her NOT to get a plot next to him.
He told her, she was young, beautiful and had a life to live. He knew she would find love again and more than likely grow old with someone else.
Just typing that gives me goose bumps as though it was the first time she told me.
The good news is, she did find LOVE again. Another amazing man! She found love, happiness and a new lease on life.
They are getting married in a few weeks.
Julie is funny, smart, creative, a fantastic Mom, and did I mention
I mean that is in the most complimenting when I say this.
She really is and I absolutely love being in her company.
Most of my friends are different! Each and every one of them have a redeeming quality that I love to be around. One key factor is making each other feel good, laughing and supporting one another.
I can’t wait to share their wedding venue and the fun decor they are having. The last update I saw on her wedding page was a huge Godzilla cake topper.
Yeah, this is what I am talking about….quirky, a little off the norm LOL!
Yesterday while chit chatting and getting completely off topic, as we tend to do.
She said something that just struck me so funny I had to make her a printable.
I suppose it struck a cord with me, because I believe this is true.
What the heck is normal anyway?
I shared it on my facebook wall and a lot of friends got a chuckle out of it.
I thought you would enjoy the same.
Have a great day.
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you are not “Normal” and take offense to this.
