  2. You want those children & any other lives you’ve touched, Brooke, to see Jesus in you, anyway ! Someday, I believe you’ll know just how many lives you’ve
    touched ! :) Even back when you were 9 or 10, you wanted to take a little turtle hom…e & care for it ! :) You’re beautiful inside & out ! :) I appreciated you sharing, “Lamb in a bow tie.” :) I love the way you make us smile ; sometimes through tears. :)

  3. Excellent, and I could so relate working in case management. Every day is a challenge and more than once I leave one challenge and face another and on the walk between I talk to the Lord and ask Him “why am I here and what is it I am supposed to do.” It’s hard to make sense of the rapid pace, endless needs, and craziness of a fallen world. Some day Brooke we’ll hear, “well done, good and faithful servant.” Proud of you Brooke. God is using you. You’re special.

  5. Brooke, You are gifted in so many ways. But what I am enjoying right at this very minute is your writing skills. And yes, you are VERY funny. Thanks for making me laugh out loud on this, day 3, of being snowed in. Loved watching you grow up into the woman that God has planned you to be. Bless you!

  6. Hi Brooke, my name’s Kelli, I’m one of your mom’s students at C.A.T.S. When I told her I wanted to be a mental health missionary, she said that’s kind of what you do and sent me this link for your blog.:) I love your writing, and everything you said was very encouraging to me. I know you’re in Belize right now, so I’ll be praying for you and that God will use you in wonderful ways.:) I hope we can meet some day, I’d really like to hear more stories and about your education and everything.
    His, Kelli Klaus

  7. For reals. I think of this card all the time in my measuring of how much or little I fit into a place- Nepal & Vegas? All bow ties. So many other daily situations I find myself looking around like, no one here thinks I’m funny… Then I imagine my little sheep self in my little bow tie and I’m all what’s WRONG with these people?!

  8. You are awesome. Sometimes people suck. I really hope I wasn’t one of them…I mean, I’m pretty sure I’m on of “the upstairs girls.” I can’t read all of this tonight…I’m not sure if I read it in 2011. But even though I suck at communication, I value you. I like to believe we learned from each other, and I do believe we are both great social workers. And still, sometimes people just suck. Love you!

  9. I don’t think you’ve even considered the ministry that you have with this blog. You really touch a lot of people by just writing down the things we all deal with in some way in our own lives. God indeed uses us in ways we don’t always know about. Have a Merry Christmas and let’s get together for that dinner soon!

  10. I agree with Heather. What you write really touches me and I know touches many others, I can relate. There is great healing in relating. Thanks Brooke.

  11. Thanks guys, I agree there IS great healing in relating, and whenever I write something that resonates with someone else, it feels like we’re both affirmed. (Which really just speaks to our universal needs to be heard and understood, to matter and to belong.)
