Tomorrow is my husband's birthday, along with being St. Patty's Day! I had a small surprise dinner for him last night at Applebee's. We pulled it off without a snag and he was surprised. He thought he was meeting me and my sister, along with my brother-in-law, for dinner. He was taken aback when he walked in to 18 people waiting for him. We had a nice dinner, enjoyed the birthday cake immensely ... much more than we should have ... and he liked his gifts. All in all, it was a great evening. We missed the ones who could not make it, but we so enjoyed conversing with those who were present. Dinner was at 7:00 but we did not leave the restaurant until 9:00 or so. It was a most enjoyable evening. I will have to share some photos later. Being I am at work, I do not have access to my photos at this time.
What are your plans for the weekend? Mine are pretty simple. Tomorrow, I am going to visit a friend who is home recovering from surgery. I also want to schedule some facials to show off the new products. I love my Mary Kay. I get to bless ladies, encourage them, and now I am giving all my customers an automatic 25% discount on all of their products. God has so blessed me and I just want to share His blessings by extending the same to others.
Tonight, my husband and I are going to the movies to see "I Can Only Imagine". It is the new Christian movie which was just released today. I am anxious to see it. Sometime later this month, "Paul, the Disciple" will be coming out. Before heading to the movies, I think we are going to grab dinner.
Sunday, of course, is always my best day as I go to church. It is a great way to begin my work week, with encouragement and joy from hearing His Word. I think I have a friend who will be joining me this Sunday. I have been trying for months to get her to go with me. I am very excited!! Afterwards, I am meeting up with my sisters. We are going to have our nails done and then head out to shop for the upcoming wedding of my niece. I have nothing to wear. I hate shopping while I still have all this weight to lose but it is my fault. I will just have to suck it up and accept it for what it is. Please pray for me, seriously!
I am anticipating having a large yard sale sometime next month. I want to start working on getting things together in preparation. I have so much stuff I simply do not need. It amazes me how God has changed my way of thinking over the years. I have a great desire to simplify my life more. I want to be able to spend more of my time doing things to honor Him. I guess the older we get, the more we realize how precious time is. I wasted so many years in the dessert, and now I just want to make good on all the time I have left. My priorities have changed to God 1st, family 2nd, and career 3rd. It is no longer about me but about Him!!!!
Ok, I am going to run out and grab some lunch. I am truly contemplating taking on the task of ridding my body of sugar. I am studying about it. It is quite the undertaking and you go through so much emotionally. If I decide to start this, I need to put my son on advance notice since he has to put up with the brunt of my hormonal changes ... LOL! My husband is spared since we live in separate houses. He may move to another town completely ... smile:)!
Have a great day!
Love you all,
