Semper Gumby..

That's me! And every other military wife who wants to survive/last. For those of you who don't know Gumby he's a clay figure that was on tv for years (, very flexible and always able to adapt and bounce back. One site says this is the Marine Corp wife motto but I don't think they have a lock on the issue by any means...

It's interesting to me how the Lord slowly and quietly teaches us things many times... such as flexibility ... if we are willing to be taught - and sometimes even kicking and screaming the whole way. And how He reveals our growth at times. I have learned by hook and by crook to be somewhat/more flexible over the years and it's amazing to me how many people I meet in the "civilian world" who just aren't! Even over little things -- what type of bedspread to use, what color things are, what time to meet, how to run an event,etc,etc,etc. Now that doesn't mean I've got things down pat by any means or that I never want things my way, a certain way, or don't get irritated when things change last minute; but God is slowly but surely working on me in this area.
I loved the saying I saw one time "Blessed are the flexible for they shall never be bent out of shape..."
