Me In A Nutshell

Once upon a time I was an elite athlete. I enjoyed throwing myself repeatedly off a three story building and trying to go in the water without making a splash. Then one day that crazy passion led me to win the women's platform diving Olympic gold medal in dramatic fashion.  

My knight on the shining pool deck swept me off my feet around that time, and we decided to dive into a really crazy sport called marriage.

A few years later that event seemed as tame as cliff diving so we decided it was time to swim in the scary, exciting deep end of parenthood.  After popping out one really awesome little girl, we still wanted to kick things up to the high diving notch.  So we dove head first into adoption and recently brought home our second little girl. Oh, and did I mention the girls are just 6 months apart and in full blown toddlerhood?

Life is crazy, awesome, beautiful even through the tears that sometimes fall.  I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings... 

"...but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; 
they shall mount up with wings like eagles; 
they shall run and not be weary; 
they shall walk and not faint."  
-Isaiah 40:31
