Titus 2 Tuesday: Jessica

Hop on over to Bethany's blog to join in!

Jes and I have been singing together on the same praise team for a couple of years now, and she and her husband are good friends. We were even in the same small group for awhile. Jes and I clicked pretty easily, both loving children (she's a high school math teacher) and singing...music in general.

Jes is one of those people who radiates positivity. She has a beautiful smile and is genuinely just a *good* person. You know the type, I'm sure. Rare to find, but once you do you'll hang on to that relationship for life!

She also has a great way of telling a story--particularly when her students are involved. Swapping teaching stories with her has been one of my favorite things over the years--because she can make any situation funny!

Jes and her husband Michael just had their first baby (Finnegan--Finn) a couple of months ago. It's been so fun to watch them transition from pregnancy to parenthood. They are both so laid back and relaxed...and they are just fantastic parents.

Jes reminds me that I can take it easy...that I can look for good in every situation
...that I can be funny and sarcastic and still be kind.

I have great friends...and I'm honored that Jes is among them.

Don't you just love the "bouquet of friends" that come with life? They pick you, you pick them. We learn from them. They learn from us. Family. Family of friends. Thanks for your post. :)
