the baker's wife, adventure

I remember reading, in the opening chapters of John Bevere's Extraordinary :

"Ponder this a moment: the opposite of extraordinary is normal! If we're honest, I think we all want our lives to mean more or be more than what we've known and seen. Unless it's suppressed, there is an innate desire in each of us to rise above commonness. We yearn for the extraordinary.

How intriguing that the bulk of the most popular movies of all time are not love stories, murder mysteries, espionage thrillers, war movies, true life accounts, sports flicks, westerns, police stories, or dramas of friendship, family or life in general. No, the top box office draws are films that center on extraordinary characters doing remarkable feats, with a good number of them possessing beyond-human abilities or powers.
Why? Because "extraordinary" is how we were created to live. 
It was God's plan from the beginning."

Thinking about a beautiful friend reminded me of this book.
She has embarked on an adventure - the kind that most of us will only dream about.
And while she is now only in the throes of packing boxes, and the unknown, and the incredible task of building a business, and supporting her husband (the baker!), she is living an amazing adventure.

I miss her. But, as well as keeping in touch with her in real life, I'll be following her adventure here too.
