Yeah, two in two days! Who would have thought? Jimnotmike threw down the gauntlet after all so I guess I need to try to get back on the ball at least a wee bit. No promises but I am trying.
Today has been one of those days I have been in awe of. Nothing extraordinary happened, but it was just a good day. Work was busy as we have a huge event Saturday night (I do not have to be there but am very involved in the prep work), so my day was spent on laminating and creating signs, working on silent auction items, helping B, my work husband who is head of Events, and running errands. B and I went off to lunch together and there has been lots of camaraderie in my little department which is a welcome change from all the kitten sadness that will eat me alive if I allow it to. It's just nice. My boss thanks me on a daily basis for my work, T, the head Admin, jokes and carries on with me all day which is great fun, B and I get along famously and my least favorite staff person just gave her notice.
Tonight, The Brit and I went out to dinner with another couple we are friends with, Emily and Dave, and my church gals, who I adore. We had some wine, chatted and laughed for two hours and I just again marveled at the way God works. In an odd way, I thank Him for the horrible things that happened at the old church because they caused me to finally leave a place I was not being fulfilled. Though it was one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do, when I think of how it all turned out, I am just amazed. When I think that I could still be at that old church, fighting to keep it together and not getting anything back spiritually, I almost shudder. I cannot imagine still being somewhere that is close to dead now that I am a part of something that is on fire. Sometimes our blessings come in unexpected and unwanted at the time packages.
This weekend we are heading out for the day Saturday, potentially to a dog peach near Annapolis. I still adore my pup and I want him to have some doggie fun on the weekends. He loves other dogs so I try to find him some playmates over the weekends. Next week starts VBS so I will be busy every night. Yes, I hated VBS at the old church but I do not have to run this one and I am only playing a part in the drama each night. Bring it!
