  1. ha, yeah… i actually got a couple, “which one am i?” texts.

    i definitely should’ve made one say, “I picture you reading this and complaining about what I write about you.”

    the others are so so far away from my life that they’ll probably never read this… mwahaha!

    happy love day to you as well!!


  2. rach, one of my favorite things i’ve received on v-day is the love cd you made for me when we were in hs. it had all the great classics on it + some new lovie dovie songs too. we would pop it in and sing to it at the top of our lungs in my jeep. ha. love you. 🙂

  3. loooooovin’ you…
    is more than just a dream come true…
    and every time that we… oohh, ohh…

    AAAAHHHHHHHHHAHHHAHHAHHHHAHHH…. [in the highest voice possible.]

    [wow, GOOD times. yes!]

    i love you!

  4. “I picture you with your wife, reading Scripture to each other. Studying hard, being so intelligent, but still struggling with it all, because you love to struggle… and she is the constant of grace within that all. Love.”

    Bobby tells me (and I assume) this is me. I gotta be honest, and I hate to burst your saintly illusions of me, but my first thought was, “we never do that but wouldn’t it be awesome if we did.” At least, not the Scripture reading to each other. I do a lot of studying and pretending to be intelligent, for sure, but you nailed it with the struggle part. I do love to struggle. And maybe I’ll take the Scripture and actually being intelligent parts as a sort of vision for the future.

    I’ve been reading a lot about the significance of remembering our stories and being faithful to tell them and being faithful to live what they taught us about ourselves. Mostly from Frederick Buechner, who I can’t recommend highly enough. Thanks for reminding me of that story and the parts we all play(ed) for one another in those stories.

    Also, not sure if the “taking over the world” one was directed at me, but I’ll take it as a vision for the future as well. Q: “What are we going to do today, Britt?” A: “PREPARE TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!”

  5. britt norvell. !!

    not gonna lie, when i first saw that you commented, i kinda got terrified. remember the old days… with the blahg comment wars of relentless debating within our group of friends? [you were king.] i was scared you were offended… and since i didn’t think you’d ever read this, i had to go back and make sure i was nice. hope i wasn’t offensive… i think very highly of you and all the others aforementioned.

    anywho, yes… i’m fully aware these are all exaggerated illusions. all written straight off the hip via the remembering that has become part of me.

    “remembering stories and being faithful to live what they taught us about ourselves”… i love that.


    mom’s here and she assures me i need to read some frederick buechner.

    hope everything is so so good with you and your’s! great to hear your voice through your written words.

    [and sure, the last one can be about you… it’s pretty much directed at all of you…]
