Sunday - Organic Cotton... ahhh.... I finished up a baby blanket for some friends. They live in Colorado & have unique tastes, plus, they dont know what the baby is going to be - so I got some organic cotton that feels like Heaven, & went with all the natural colors. I'm sure not everyone would care for it as a baby blanket... but I totally love it... & pray it wraps that new baby up in tons of precious moments!
Monday - ERICA IS BACK!!!... it was our girls small group night & we've missed our friend Erica. She's been busy being one of the best mommy's ever - but Joe, her husband sent her a message & told her she was going to group tonight & he would take care of Emily. So we got to laugh with our friend & hear her insight on God things & life things.... it was just like she's never been gone... (BTW, those are Oreos in their mouths)
Tuesday - GET IN THE HOUSE!!!.... I was watching TV when the President was on talking about BP & they kept putting weather reports at the bottom. I looked out, saw the wind kicking up & had to head outside. These clouds were all "funnel-y" & I just stood out staring - even when it started raining. The neighbors pulled in while I was taking pictures & rolled down their window & screamed "GET IN THE HOUSE!"... I wanted to yell, "come out in the rain with me"!
Wednesday - Pray to live in Peace... we got the update of our World Vision child... she's growing up so fast (dont they all?) & her progress report about killed me with the last statement. Her prayer request: to live in peace... what 6th grader wants that? Most want prayers to get the latest iPod or some cool clothes... peace... what a different world this little girl lives in...
Thursday - Surprise from my daddy.... My dad & mom used to clean the office building where I work & every time I'd come in after they would clean, I would find little notes that said "Love ya, Dad" - somewhere! There is even a note that is STILL on the ceiling... dont ask how he got that there!... but I opened up a CD to listen to Thursday & there was another note - & they havent cleaned for years... so it was fun to get a surprise to make me smile.
Friday - The Best of Both Worlds!!!... isnt it funny, I just put how I cant find the GLEE Deluxe CD & lo & behold, lookie what I found. The last one too!!! Snatched it up, along with the little novella (is that what they call it?) from Twilight... if I had only had some sort yarn with this purchase, then this would have been like the Perfect Storm - the best of 3 things coming together!
Saturday - Walking for Emily!!! It was the Epilepsy Walk & there was a great turn out for TEAM EMILY! We expected horrible heat but God was once again so faithful! A storm came in that kept the sun away for the beginning & then it brought in a breeze that just made the day so much better. Towards the end, the sun came out & we had blue skies, but it still wasnt miserable... Thank you God!... And Team Emily raised over $1,000 ... We want to gear up NOW for next year's event ...
(Emily had the hook up with the fans on her!... nice!)
(These girls made me laugh the whole walk... Good times ARE always better with friends!)
Hope you've all had click-worthy moments in your life this week!
