This week I am Thankful For:
HSM kiddo text
I was having the worst day. Found out someone I really thought I had a friendship with totally shut me out. That's OK. If someone doesnt want a friendship with me, they dont have to - but it still was a shock more than anything. I tried to not let it get to me & just go on with life, but it sat heavy on me... & then I get a text from one of my HSM kiddos out of the blue. Just thanking me for investing in her & listen to her & letting her cry on my shoulder when she needs to & giving her advice when she needs it.... that right there took all that heavy weight right off of me. That is where I'm needed. God will let relationship grow where they need to & settle where they dont need to happen. I totally felt God's hand on that sweet text with this precious reminder.
My adorable blog/running friend Karen had gone to the Bahamas on a Disney cruise (color me all sorts of jealous) & she thought of me & made sure to find a Starbucks to pick me up a mug I do not have. Welcome to the collection Bahama beauty!!!
Starbucks meet up
Speaking of the above, I loved getting to sit with Karen & her soul sister/roomie/bestie Cathy - We meet up at Starbucks so I could get the beautiful mug & just loved hearing their stories about their trip & our discussion somehow transferred to The Monkees & Chris Evans & Hugh Jackman... these girls, I enjoy conversation with. Looking forward to setting up another coffee date or dinner date to chat some more!
Ricky got choked the other night eating a peanut butter sandwich.... FREAKED ME OUT. He ran to get something to drink & it just came right back up - nothing would pass. He said he felt like he was going to black out. It was HORRIFYING. He kept running around the kitchen in circles & I was running behind him screaming to shake his head to tell me if he was OK. I was ready to tackle him & beat his back till he could breath again... but first, I'd have to catch him!!! Whew - after some gagging & throwing him, he finally was able to breath. We were both so shook up for awhile after that. The dogs even were shook up. Talk about praising the Lord when he was fine. ... man, you never know what can happen in a day.
... always love visits to my local Library!!! I wish more people took advantage of this great resource so the library could get more support... from people & the city!
... just had to throw it in here again because I'm loving it!
So if we have to deal with record breaking temps (99 degrees most of the week!!!) at least the humidity hasn't been awful. I mean, it still feels horrible & nothing I want to hang out in... but you can at least breath & your hair doesnt automatically turn into a brillo pad. I'll take it.
Tell me something good about your week!
