Happy Birthday Hope Shalom
Hope wanted to take her birthday money and go shopping for the evening. We drove to Chattanooga and we had a great time together. We spent the whole evening in the mall just looking at girl things. She spent most of her birthday money in order to finish out her fall wardrobe. She is a great shopper. I kept looking at the front of the store for pretty items. She never stopped at the front. She always headed to the back of the store and looked at the clearance racks first. She never would buy anything full price. She is a much better shopper than me.
We all had a wonderful evening. The only thing that was missing was our oldest son Matthew and his girlfriend Chelsea. This morning I was driving Hope to school and she mentioned that she was really tired. I asked her why because I knew she had gone to bed on time. She giggled and said that Matthew had called her right before she went to sleep, and they spent a long time talking together on the phone. I knew he didn't get off work until 10:00 last night so I wasn't too upset that he kept her up late. I was just thankful that he took the time to call her. It was the perfect ending to her birthday!
grace and peace,
