In early December, I had the privilege of being a bridesmaid in Meredith Alexander's wedding. She has several posts written on her blog with pictures.
I've known Meredith since I was about 3 years old. Our families were attending the same church, but we really got to know them when my parents took a Christian-based parenting class that Mr. and Mrs. Alexander were teaching.
I have memories of Meredith painting my fingernails and letting me fix her hair while our parents visited. Neither one of us had sisters at the time, and though God has since blessed her with one sweet little sister and me with four, I've always felt a special sister connection to her.
Over the years, Meredith has remained a constant source of encouragement to me, even though I don't get to see her very often. She's also been a huge blessing to others through her blog, Striving to Serve at Home.
I hope I can serve my family as diligently and joyfully as she has. I love you Meredith!
