I know what you’re thinking, and yes, this is getting a little ridiculous. Again with the picture thing. Last week, I shared that I needed a new photo that actually looked like me. Little did I know that my friend Rhonda would offer to take one for me!
What kind of lady does that? An awesomely sweet one. Did I mention I haven’t seen her in ten years? Ten years! Rhonda was a big influence on my life in my high school years. She exemplified godly living and was absolutely crazy fun. I have tons of special memories of her, and of her couch, too. I spent many nights on it
She happened to be in my area last weekend and we met up on Sunday morning at 7am. When she added that she’d do some family photos, too, I begged my husband to come along. He wasn’t too keen on the idea of getting everyone up at 5am on a Sunday morning, but after a little convincing, he agreed. All I had to do was show him her website.
I may have also slightly suggested there would be some major pouting if he said no. The secret to pouting, by the way, is to save it for the big stuff. Yeah, I’m all about submitting but I’m no saint. And getting a family picture taken by a dear friend who happens to be a very talented lady… well that sent me over the edge. (Not that it’s a long trip.)
So, my whole happy fam turned out and met Rhonda early Sunday morning. She was cheerful and fun and sweet and had us all relaxed. For the first time in my life, I actually liked getting my picture taken!
Rhonda sent me these headshots and I love ‘em! The only problem is, I can’t choose one! So, I am leaving it up to you, dear friends. Please do comment and tell me which pic you like.
Now, go check out Rhonda’s photoblog. See her cutie patootie husband? He was my youth pastor! He wore orange vans, taught me to pray, encouraged me more than any teacher ever had… and took me on a missions trip to Hollywood where we witnessed to prostitutes. But that’s a story for another time…
Now I promise I’ll get back to regular programming around here soon.
