I find it so difficult to sit and find the time to write. I desire to, but I get so caught up in catching up with everyone else's blogs that I forget to post in my! I am learning, very slowly, how this whole blog thing works. I even checked a book out at the library to help me! Kind of funny, I know. But, I plan on figuring it out though, and soon I will be a consistent writer!
I have had a good week this week. It's been busy, but good. I got to dye my god-daughter's hair yesterday. It's a long story, she is 15. Her mom had her at the age of 16 and I was a big part of their life when she was young. She was the flower girl in my wedding, at age 4. Time went on, I started my own family and we lost touch. After coming back from Morocco, her mom has leaned on me for some help and we have stepped in. I pick her up from school everyday and she spends the afternoons with our family. I pray with all my heart that God grabs a hold of her heart. She needs him so desperately and I pray that I can be just a small reflection of Him to her. It isn't always easy, but I hope and pray that she finds Him. She got out of school early yesterday and I took her to the beauty store. We found some fun stuff to dye her hair, which she has been wanting to do. I knew if I didn't help, she'd buy some cheap stuff and really mess up her hair. She wanted red and she has black hair which is not easy to color. I wanted her to do it right, so we tried! It was a lot of fun for me. One, because I don't really ever get to do a girls hair. Two, I got to spend some good time with her and get to know her a little better, and three, in case you didn't know, someday I want to really learn how to cut and color hair! So, I enjoy it! But definitely need some training, I think I got bleach and hair dye everywhere! Hahaha!
