A bald head must be easy to spot
So, I was at the Y yesterday morning walking on the tread mill. (As my spinning class was sweating their butts off down the hall. Is it weird that I miss spinning class?) And this lady that I've seen for years around the Y came up to me and asked if I was Elizabeth? She said that she found my blog through our friend, Jenny, (who by the way is like this super famous blogger and quite the big deal on the internetz... you should check her out) and that she's been reading my blog and praying for me. It was surprising to me. And really nice to know that some people at the Y are praying. Later yesterday afternoon, I took Olivia and we ran some errands together. We hit Sam's Club (isn't it so annoying when you have to hit Sam's for two items? AND THEN they don't even have samples?! Sheesh.) Next stop was Target. Naturally, Olivia had to make a potty stop. So I'm hovering outside of the stall when a lady came in and I noticed her glancing my way. I do get a bit self conscious these days with my bald head under my hat situation. Then she asked, "Are you Elizabeth?" She went on to tell me who she was and that we have our aforementioned Jenny friend in common. She also told me that she had been praying for me in the car on the way over to Target. How crazy is that? It's crazy enough that anybody reads this blog. But even crazier to me that people I don't even really know have me on their hearts and are talking to God about my situation. I am humbled! And encouraged. So thank you for reading. But thank you even more for praying. I can't even tell you how much God used yesterday to remind me that He is alive and active, not just in my life but in your lives too. Our third stop found us at Old Navy. (I'm on a hunt for an appropriate bathing suit for a five year old. It's harder than you think!) To my disappointment, no body recognized me there :)! NOR did we find a suitable suit. But I walked away with a new dress, shoes and sweater. Oops! Don't worry... I won't let all this *fame* go to my head!
