*Impromptu dinner with a friend-no kids or husbands (although the latter would have been fun to have along!).
*Contributing to a surprise 90th birthday gift for my grandma. The family is compiling stories and pictures for her to read when she's alone or during the night when she can't sleep. It's been precious to think back on all the memories she's blessed us with.
*Unusually warm weather for several days-this kind of messes with my head, but it was nice to get out with the girls and go to the park.
*Planning Ashlyn's 12th birthday...how bittersweet for mom & dad!
I'm a little proud of myself for pulling off an afternoon out of town with the girls. Yes, that's 5 against 1! We had to pick up Shane's new glasses and decided to add a stop at the library, a couple of thrift stores, Mardel & Hobby Lobby. We're pretty familiar with the area, but usually backtrack a few times to get around. With all the kids in tow, I managed to not scream once and we scooted easily from one stop to the next like we were natives!
Food for thought-I saw a billboard next to the adult video store in the next county over. The billboard was a strong message from the area churches taking a stand against this kind of business. At first I thought, "Way to go!" but then I thought twice. Is being confrontational the best way to be Jesus to those caught in this type of addiction?
