Enter the curly girls of the Cothran quads but I wonder if Emma might have curls too. Let me introduce you to Reagan. I just love her smile! It’s like her smile shows us her heart and it’s a big one. I asked her if she knew what she wanted to do after high school and she answered, “Study to be a nurse.” Honestly, I think anyone who has a heart to love strangers and help them when they’re hurting is a pretty amazing person. Unfortunately, nurses often go unnoticed and unappreciated in hospitals but they do so much good. I believe Reagan will make an amazing care giver some day.
After reading through Reagan’s questionnaire we basically could be besties. She loves cooking, swimming, shopping, Netflix, Mexican Train Dominos, and my three favorites. . .journaling, checking the mail and Jacksonville, Florida! Sometimes, life is just too much or so sweet and you don’t want to forget – journal. Other times God speaks volumes (I have a fun God story for you next week) and you need to process it in writing. Then there’s the times when you simply just need to write your feelings to release it all.
Next, let’s talk about checking the mail. I know it sounds strange but I mean really, who doesn’t like getting a hand written note or letter? It’s truly a dying art and honestly such an intimate thing. Recently, Gabe and I came across some old letters my mother-in-love had written to friends years ago and how wonderful was it to see her handwriting and hear her heart for her family. I guess it’s kind of like journaling. Anyway, I love this about Reagan.
Lastly, there’s good ol’ Jacksonville! When I saw that name on her questionnaire I knew we’d get along splendidly. In fact she’s there now and I’m so very jealous! I guess Duval will always hold a special place in each of our hearts.
Reagan, I love your heart! I see it and it is good and it is powerful! Don’t ever minimize who God created you to be! Always know that you were created with a purpose and you have a great destiny. Simply follow His leading you’ll change people’s lives…I believe it!
