Good Morning to everyone!! I am up early for me that is!! It is so cool and comfortable here in our home once again...WE ARE THRILLED!!
Yesterday the air conditioning people spent a whole day from 8-5 working on putting in a new air conditioning/heat pump system in our home!! This so worked out so wonderfully!! God really helped us get this new system. I believe even more now that God not only works out our problems but also our difficulties!! This one was one of them!! WOW!!
Yesterday also for me was a work day...one more day to go!! It was a full day. After I finished working, I took a friend out for her birthday!! She is a whole 69 now and of course not happy about the next birthday!! That is just incredible. It won't be long and I will be looking at that age too!! The way the months fly by it will be here before we know it!!
Last night I was invited to a reunion of our old MOPS group! First of for some of you that do not know what MOPS is...Well it stands for Mother's of Preschoolers.
When I first moved to Savannah in May of 2001, they were just starting this group at our church. I was made a mentor for the young girls and had hardly got all the boxes in our house emptied. Our daughter had moved to Savannah first. She was in the group that started the first MOPS at our church. She had them take me on as one of the first mentors. That is why I had a job before I even was completely moved.
We had a great time for 5 years. Our first meeting was on September 11, 2001!! I am sure ya'll remember that date!! We had to go to church that morning and decorate for the meeting which was to be held that night at 7:00!! I had gone over to pick up my daughter and that is when I saw the second tower get hit!! We did not start out on a very good foot that day!!
We went ahead to church even though everyone just wanted to stay at home and be close to their families. We knew that we could not cancel it because we did not know who was coming. We had a very very light turn out. The other sweet woman that was also a mentor found out that morning that her nephew was at the top of the tower. She went directly home. We found out later that he did not make it.
I say all of this to tell you that getting back together last night was great!! I could not stay long but our first "fearless leader" was back!! It was a surprise and everyone was so happy to see her again. Out daughter and she were best friends and have lost track of each other. So to see Becky see her friend was just pure JOY to me. They cried!!
Look at these lovely women that I was privileged to work with!!
My parents have been plagued with tons of rain and tornadoes!! Does anyone feel like we are having more bad tornadoes this year!!?? My folks have some streets flooded in their small town in Illinois. More rain is to come...AND here we sit wishing for rain!! I am starting to wonder just what is going on...hm!!
Hope everyone has a great day!! I just got the new PHOTO HUNT list so am not playing today but will be back next week with the word...EMOTIONS!! WOW!! Now there is a picture to find!! Happy week looking for that one!! smile!! I guess I have a good one already on here with Becky and her friend...Becky was in tears!! Several were when they first saw our FIRST LEADER!! I love surprises!!
Thought for the day: "FRIENDSHIP isn't about whom you have known the longest; but about who came and never left your side."
