It's always nice to see things completed on a long list of things to do! Have a great weekend getaway!


I hope you have a great weekend in Seattle...What are you wearing for the wedding.

I need your prayers today Joanne. My family has been going through a tough time lately. I try to put everything in front of God and listen what he says.But I am having trouble listening. I am becoming indecisive and I dont know whom to ask for directions.
I hope and pray that God gives all of us the strength to listen to him.

Enjoy your weekend away.

I forgot to ask...can I be a part of your support group? This age (almost 10) is TUFF!


Wow, so much going on! May is so hectic for everybody. I cannot wait for things to slow down.

Fried Okra is my husband's love language :)


What a great morning--so happy for you! I love MOPS. Were you a speaker?


I'm a Seattle-ite and fellow Whitworth alum who enjoys your blog! Enjoy your trip to our lovely city--the weather is supposed to be downright gorgeous while you're here (as in 80s, which hardly ever happens!). :)


Fried okra? YUM!

And I definitely want to join that support group for moms of hormonal girls. Count me in!


Sounds like a great day...enjoy your time in Seattle...I am in Portland but my brother lives in was 85 today and 95 Seattle should be gorgeous and you will probably be drinking that coffee iced...enjoy...

VERY cool that you go to chapel! I taught in a Christian school, and I wish that more parents had chosen to come (those who were able).
