I still remember what it felt like seeing Katie Black at the movies, that time I asked her to go with me but she said she couldn’t because she had stuff to do with her family. So I went to the movies with my own family, and there she was laughin’ it up with friends after all.
Even as a grown up girl, there’s something about feelin’ left out that brings out the 8th grade girl in me. And it doesn’t take someone purposely leaving you out to feel left out. Sometimes you don’t get to hang with people you really want to hang with because they’re there and you’re here. We’re talkin’ about that at (in)courage today. And lots more. Want to join a party where ev-er-y-body is in? Want to enter a sweet giveaway, too? And hear more about giveaways going on all week? Read the details here.
It’s like Christmas in October, I tell ya! Goody goody gumdrops!

I’m so bummed not to be going to Relevant. 🙁 But I get myself out of my funk for counting my blessings. God sent me to She Speaks this past summer, and I’m still so thankful for that! I’m going to (in)RL!!! Yeehaw!
I loved meeting you at She Speaks, Amy! *High five* for going to an (in)RL event! 🙂

Stopping by here to say hello and love your pic – trying to figure out where it is cause it DOES look familiar to me – since I too live here in COLORADO! You ARE living in GOD’S country just so you know that! The beauty here is beyond anything your eyes will see – HE truly has HIS hands on this state’s beauty. I know you miss home, but you will learn to love it here. I moved here 20 plus years ago and have never left due to loving it so much. Hope we can meet someday – many blessings to YOU!
Amen to this post! I can’t hardly stand the thoughts of my children feeling this “left out” hurt….it hurts me just to think of it! And it’s not just them, but us adults too:( BLESS you and thank you for your honesty and transparency!!!
