I'm gonna 'splode!

i can just picture my 3 year old saying this in her cute little voice....and it is exactly how i feel!
i feel like i could 'splode with gratitude! the past couple of weeks have been so busy, and so wonderful! i have been hooping and making hoops like a crazy woman! then to top it all off some really beautiful ladies gave me the biggest pat on the back ever!

for some reason i just assume that everyone in the world knows my girl Sara. she is the most exquisite woman! she is an encourager of the rarest breed! a few months ago i had the pleasure of having the best conversation with her about venturing out into this new facet of my life. she was soooo helpful, and pretty much gave me the pep talk of the year!!!! thank you so much sara!!! a few months ago she also asked me to do the most wonderful thing ever as far as i am concerned, she asked me to write a guest spot for one of her blogs.....once again if you know sara you know she is the blog QUEEN, so to step in and write for her was such an honor! you can read the blog entry here.

i also have recently made a new friend via social networking who is quite extraordinary. Shannon is the owner of a jewelry shop in jacksonville florida, mom, and sister hooper. she contacted me a few weeks ago about an email newsletter she sends out to her customers. you can see it about gonna 'splode!!! i am looking forward to getting a piece of shannons beautiful jewelry soon!

i am completely overwhelmed with the support and love that has been coming from all over the place, and grateful for such good friends who are teaching me everyday what it means to pour yourself out for others! may it flow right back around like the hoops on our hips!
