Who Am I? Meet Kristi

Hi Y'all,

I'm Kristi....

A few months ago this part of the blog said something entirely different, but then our world was surprised by the, for real... World's Biggest Surprise... and without warning, I lost my best friend, my partner, my companion, my love, my husband of 19 years.  When you read about Fireman Dave on the blog, please know that he was loved and treasured for the man that he was and for the father that he was to our boys.  

Y'all, If anyone ever asked what I did for a living, for work,... my answer would've gone something like this:  wife, mom, maker of a home for the people I love the most.  Now I guess I can only claim the mom part,... but hoping that God has someone and somewhere for me to place all the love I didn't get to use up the first time around.  

I am the mom of 3 boys - one in college, and currently 2 in high school.  They have real birth certificate names, but for blog purposes, they are Kids 1, 2 and 3.  That'll also work well for me one day if my memory fails me and I need a quick go-to to get their attention.  

Anyway, this blog is mine.  Mine to write, to share and to invite you into the conversations that are so normal in my own head, but sound like essays to others.  It's sort of my diary and I welcome you to read.  

Would you like to comment?

    Love it!!

  2. Kristi, love the way you write. Your blog is a wonderful idea! It is so charming and inspirational reading each post! You make a difference in my life by making it richer every day! Glad the Lord has given you such a keen humor, a happy home and the love for Him and the blessings (kiddos) he has given you! WRITE ON!!!

  3. I found you from FMF, and loved reading this. I always say I raised 3 cowboys. They are now 21, 23, and 29.What joys and blessings. Enjoy, Enjoy, enjoy. Even sandwich throwing. I so enjoyed reading this!

  4. Kristi, I can't believe I see my comment above from about 20 months ago. My 21 year old is now 23 and just left to go to Redding California, actually six days ago and they are just arriving! I found a quote from you that I thought was beautiful and for my "empty nest therapy" I have been going through my notes so I checked back here because I wanted to use the quote in a short blog tonight (so I could clear out my notes) and I wanted to link to you. Now I've read about "naked boys" and then again about you and your pirates! So refreshing. You are absolutely an amazing writer. I hope you don't mind the use of your quote. I'm linking it to you! Have a wonderful week with your family!

  5. I absolutely love this and thank you Kristi for being in Loyce's life!
