Sheila is the girl I wanted to be in high school. She was kind, brilliant, gorgeous, thoughtful, and truly had a heart for God. My husband once joked "well, why didn't you just marry Sheila if you think she's so perfect?" :) While she'd be the first to tell you that she's not perfect (yes, she's humble too ... add that to her list of attributes) she was and is a totally awesome person. I am so blessed by her friendship and I am thankful to be able to support her in her latest admirable activity - spending a year working as a registered nurse at the Children of the Promise children's home in Haiti. She has already been there for three months and, in a few short days, she'll be returning to Haiti for the next year. You can follow her adventure on her blog and I promise, you'll fall in love with her and her beautiful heart too. Sheila, thank you for being you. Your honesty, your compassion, your sense of humor ... I simply adore it all. I will continue praying for your time in Haiti and I know that you will bless all those you come into contact with, just as you have blessed me with your friendship.
