A Mid-Summer's Visit

My best friend from back home, Mary Beth, brought her children up to Tuscaloosa for a visit before their cousin's wedding in Birmingham. I am so thankful I had the privilege of spending time with 3 of my favorite Dothanites!

During their stay, we went to The Children's Hands On Museum where Madison & Mitchell {my namesake} got to make Indian necklaces, fly a space shuttle, make milkshakes and even visit a replica of DCH {our local hospital & Justin's place of employment}.

Mary Beth is one of the most amazing women I know. She is a teacher in Dothan- any parent who has a child in her class can rest assured their children will receive an excellent education. Among being a wife, parenting & teaching, Mary Beth just finished her Masters and I am so proud of her!

I do pray that one day Justin and I will be blessed with children and when that day comes, I have an amazing example of a godly & committed mother in my friend. MB, I really don't know if you realize what an amazing mother you are. You are always ready with an answer that is understandable and kind. You use everyday as a teachable moment. I love your children and I love the way you and James are raising them! Please write a book {in all your spare time} for the rest of us! J and I totally enjoyed your visit! We cannot wait to see you all again!

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
