Packing up for a 9.5 hour drive to Normal, Illinois, to speak at Hearts at Home. I’m so excited. This is one of the best mom parties of the year. Great speakers. Amazing music. Encouragement. And lots of chocolate!
My good friend and Proverbs 31 Ministries team sister will also be there, which just makes it better.
I don’t normally drive, but I look forward to a time of just hanging out and praying and talking to God about the women I will meet.
The guy I love is climbing on a jet plane the day after I get home. He’s working on addtl. training for his job as a counselor with youth who struggle with addictions. It’s rare that I go very long without seeing him, and I know I’ll miss him like crazy, but I’m excited that he’s doing something he absolutely loves.
When I get home I plan to play in the dirt for three or four days and plant some bulbs. Sometimes we just need to take time to do nothing but enjoy the small things around us. I can’t remember the last time that happened, which can only mean it’s past due.
I hope you will pray with me as I connect with these beautiful moms, and new friends as I talk about the things I love most — faith and family.
