The tree comes down tomorrow – it could wait until Tuesday but this is going to be a busy week. I love the “sparkle” effect of the lights in this shot.
So far the word is that the delivery of Mum’s stuff will be on a “straight truck” but keep praying that things don’t change. They are pretty sure – so much so that they’ve removed the “shuttle charge” from the estimate. When Ellen at the moving company told me she was doing that, I told her I had lots of folks praying for a straight truck. She laughed. Truck is due to come Thursday or Friday – so it’ll be a busy weekend.
I went to what has become a wonderful annual event. It is a lovely afternoon enjoying tea and little sandwiches and some wonderful sweets. Mostly it is a chance to take a step back and enjoy the company of a group of wonderful women – many of whom I personally look up to as they are strong, successful, loving, compassionate, beautiful Christian women. The example they provide as they lead their own families and our church family is something I hope to some day live up to in my own life.
