Dear Self, you went and got your ears pierced this past weekend? All by yourself? You even took a before and after picture to capture the memory? Dear Fellow Ear Pierced Humans, how did you withstand the torture of cleaning your fresh earring holes 3 times a day? It's the worst part of this whole deal for sure. Dear Mr., this week we received your official licensing as a Pastor. I have to admit, it's a little strange to hear people address you as Pastor Jim. I am proud of you, who you are as man, and I'm thrilled I get to call you mine. You are making a difference and it's so special to watch the transformation in your life. Dear Mom, you have been a lifesaver this week. Your God like character is admirable and I so desire to have people see in me what I see in you. Dear Sweets, I want you so badly. 16 more days and this 30 Day Challenge is over. Part of me thought I would want to stay off sweets, but I want to devour them the second the challenge is over! Dear Self Control, hang in there. Dear God, you are so good. In the midst of a storm you are still so good.
