Happy Hump Day. This is kind of a weird week for me as today is going to be my 1st day of going into the office this week. We got back home from Chicago late Monday night, and then yesterday in addition to playing chauffeur - I also got to hang out with my little man for the day.
So on Friday I told you that you could ask anything that you wanted and that I would answer...so here we go.
Our friend Kim had a question for us
Back in high school one of my Sunday School teachers worked at a place called Youth For Christ (YFC). On Thursday nights YFC had a drop in program for high school students called Campus Life. They had all kinds of free time activities that you could do, and then they had a "program" each week as well. Well...I started going every Thursday night, along with some other kids from my church. Mike's football coach, also happen to work for YFC...so he use to bring the whole football team that he coached. So Campus Life is where Mike and I met. A year or two after we met Mike really connected with one of the volunteers at YFC who also went to the same church I did...so Mike started attending our church. It was at that point that the 2 of us became good friends. All through High School I had a boyfriend so Mike and I were just friends (even though he told me and everyone else that he was going to marry me).
Ok now we introduce Rhoda. Rhoda is from a small town just outside our city...and when I was 17 or 18 she started attending our church. None of us "kids" at church really knew her, but on Good Friday there was a Baptist joint church service here in town, and then all us "kids" had reservations to go out for lunch together. I thought this would be a good opportunity for all of us to get to know Rhoda, and vise versa....well....needless to say her and I were forced to get to know each other that day 'cause her and I were the only 2 that showed up....and I guess the rest as they say is history. Rhoda and I hit it off that day, and have been friends ever since. As for Mike and I...well clearly he was right - as he did marry me, but what you may not all realize is that we just skipped the whole dating thing - and just got married. Probably not something that I would necessarily recommend - but hey it worked for us. Although Rhoda and I have been friends for like 17 years + it's really been over the last 6ish years that Mike and Rhoda have formed the kind of friendship that now have today.
We have been on many great adventures together - and speaking for myself I look forward to all the adventures that lie before us!
