The Godly Chic Diaries

Destinyisafeelingyouhavethatyouknowsomethingaboutyourselfnobodyelsedoes.Thepictureyouhaveinyourownmindofwhatyoureaboutwillcometrue.” ~BOB DYLAN

Avlog of my day-to-day life would be pretty much unwatchable.😞It consists of studying, band practice and making weird goofy faces while cramming obscene tons of information into my brain. In the last two years of my life, not much has changed superficially, but the growth I’ve experienced has been tremendous. I can’t help thinking about where I am and what it all means.

There have been moments when I’ve been on top of the world. There have been moments when I’ve asked myself why I even wanted this to begin with. And there have been countless “Sure, I’ll just keep swimming.” – moments.

As I continue my journey through Law…

Creative Foundations, Artist Danielle

Danielle painted a beautiful bird

~ the Blue Crowned Crane ~

which was made into a card.

She showed me her design,

proudly telling me it was

hers, on sale for the

Delaware Arts Festival,

along with many other

artworks on display!

We turned her notecard over,

looking at the picture of

herself. I read aloud

Danielle’s Art Statement:

painting, drawing, performing.

I like to talk with my friends

and family. My favorite thing

to do is draw animals.

Creative Foundations

makes me very happy.”

My friend, Jenny, who taught

bought some cards

Danielle is good friends with Amber.

Amber painted my youngest

She had been so excited when

I “commissioned her!”

It is hanging in Felicia’s bedroom.

After being such excellent

blogging friends, your

reward is to see the M & M

girls with little brother,

toddler Hendrix!

All enjoyed soft serve

chocolate ice cream.

Our very favorite ice cream “palace”

is called Dairy Point, a family

run business where my

personal favorite is a

scoop of hard butter pecan,

hot caramel, real whipped cream,

home toasted pecans and

a cherry on top!

🍒

Please “dish!”

What is your favorite flavor?

Does anyone still order

a banana split?

for the Veterans – Military Appreciation Month

Pacific Paratrooper

Martha Cothren with her class

This is a contribution from my brother for the veterans!  There is a lesson here that the students of Little Rock High School will never forget.  I would presume also that most students would never have given this a thought……

In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock , did something not to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her classroom. When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks.

‘Ms. Cothren, where are our desks?’

 She replied, ‘You can’t have a desk until you tell me how you earn the right to sit at a desk.’ 

 They thought, ‘Well, maybe…
