A Week of Blessings

I had a great trip to Tennessee.  The four hour drive by myself was filled with beautiful scenery and humbling views.  As I drove listening to my favorite music (singing along, of course) I couldn’t resist snapping pictures through the windshield.


Meeting all the wonderful people that I am working with was such a blessing.  We had such a time fellow-shipping and learning more about each other.  A lot was accomplished. 

The hospitality of our host and hostess was overwhelming and their children were amazing.  I was so excited to meet my blogging buddy Heidi. She is all I thought she was and so much more.

It is hard to put into words what a fabulous and gifted group of people I am working with.  It amazes me how God places people into our lives the way that He does and all the twists and turns He puts in our paths.  I work directly under an awesome lady who has such a heart for our Father it inspires me. 

The other ladies I met are all so terrific, kind and so down to earth.  I could go on and on, singing of each of their virtues.

When I arrived home on Saturday I was greeted with the most wonderful surprise.  Today is our 24th anniversary and my husband wanted me to have something special.  While I was gone, he and my dad put in a new kitchen floor.  Wahoo!  Happy Dance all over the place.  If you read my blog regularly you may remember me mentioning my desire for a new floor a few times.  I have wanted one for quite a few years as the old one was in such a pathetic state.  It went from this:

And they even did the bathroom:

These guys are the greatest!

Thank you, Daddy for all your help.  You rock! 

And, honey, I love you more each and every day we share together.  Happy Anniversary!

This has been the most exciting, outstanding week I can hardly contain myself.  I think I’ll go do my happy dance again.

    I finally get to "see" some of the meetings. You get the prize for being the first to blog photos! Now who is that sitting next to Angela on the couch? I see Dena on one side, is it Michelle? And is that Heidi sitting next to Eleanor on the couch. Man, I wish I could have been there!

    Congratulations on your great new floor though. Wow! What a wonderful surprise. I am so happy for you. Enjoy your anniversary with your sweetie. :O)

    It was wonderful to meet you. I'm going to be posting my pictures on my blog too- think I'll do them one at a time or something – blog fodder, you know?

    You got some excellent shots from inside your car – that is amazing!

    I love your new floor. What a wonderful surprise. It's funny that you thought "maybe" then ruled it out and went home to a big surprise! You'll have to check out my blog and see what I went home to – Ian's quilt!

    Oh, you're new floor is FABULOUS!! I couldn't believe it when I read about it, cuz you had mentioned while in TN. I would have loved to have seen your face when you walked in a saw it. You are blessed with a dear, sweet hubby and family!

    May your new floor be blessed with cute little dust bunnies for many years!
