Not Me! Monday... with a Rockstar!

Nope, not me, I definitely did NOT hang with a rockstar this weekend! I mean, maybe not a bonafide "rockstar" but as close to it as possible. No, I am certainly not the one that so many envied as I picked up this rockin' girl at her hotel and met her sweet Prince Charming so we could grab dinner and formally "meet" after a few years of blog-following and emailing.

We definitely didn't go to Lupe Tortilla, the best Mexican restaurant in Houston. We surely did not talk about Maddox, Stellan, Trisomy 18 or SVT. You can be sure that we didn't talk about the plans God has for us presently, and in the future and how He can use our past experiences to minister to others. We never considered discussing Big Mac and Doodle and them being the "oldests" as they set the stage for their younger siblings. We didn't talk about Stellan and Faith Clare and their latest words, or lack thereof. We didn't talk about marriage, kids, family, careers, faith, blogs or anything of the sort. We didn't laugh and you know for SURE that we did not cry.

We most definitely did not leave the restaurant in pursuit of last-minute cruising items and end up at the sketchiest HEB in town... that would be crazy, funny and possibly scary all at the same time! I would never casually speak to a man in the longest checkout line in history who would then not.stop.talking. And I surely would not concede that the necklace I was wearing was for "Mardi Gras" just because he insisted it was. That would never happen because that would just be weird.

And just in case anyone was wondering, we did not get to the hotel and hug. We didn't take a few hundred pictures that a random girl in the hotel couldn't seem to get right. We didn't bid farewell and I certainly didn't wish we'd had even more time. I would never be selfish like that and want to monopolize all of her time! Quite simply, I did NOT have a great time spending the evening with a wonderful mother, wife, and woman of faith. I'm definitely not thankful to God for allow our stories to intersect or for having the privilege to pray for one another... okay... well, maybe, just maybe I am.

(Thank you iPhone for not being the only thing "said" random girl could get to take!)
Thank you MckMama for taking time to get together! You are NOT fabulous.

"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed."- 1 Peter 4:12-13
