When I grow up….

When I grow up…

I want to be like my sister, Melissa Godfrey.  Melissa is almost 5 years younger than me, but she’s much wiser.  I want to be as organized as she is.  At her house there is a place for everything and everything is in its place (and probably labeled).  At my house you’re lucky if you stumble across the item you need when you need it.  I want to be as compassionate as she is.  Melissa cares deeply for other people.  She cares about women in prison and women who are hurting.  She pours into other people’s lives like crazy.  She loves her family and is one of the best moms I know.  I want to be like her when I grow up.

When I grow up…

I want to be like my friend Kay Thomas.  Kay is so incredibly talented.  She sings, she acts, she runs our elementary program at Daystar church like nobody’s business!  She is a great wife and mom.  Her husband adores her and her kids love to spend time with her.  People are always seeking her out for advice.  She is a loyal friend and I can’t imagine not having her as my best friend and office mate!  Kay keeps the calendar and makes sure I get to where I’m supposed to go on time. 🙂  I want to be like her when I grow up.

When I grow up….

I want to be like Louise Gettman.  Louise is my mentor in children’s ministry.  She taught me all that I know about running a children’s ministry.  Louise is older than me, but has way more energy than I do!  I admire her love for her husband and her love for her daughter.  Louise is fun!  I miss her so much!

When I grow up….

I want to be like my friend Janelle.  Janelle is the mom of two wonderful kids, one of which is autistic.  I admire her for being such a champion for her son.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her sense of humor!  The only strike against her is the fact that she’s a Tarheel fan – oh well – nobody’s perfect. 🙂 🙂 🙂  I want to be like Janelle when I grow up. : )

When I grow up I want to be like these amazing women who have touched my life along the way.  I can wish, can’t I?
