Sweet friends, I have been wanting to continue our heart-stirring, soul-searching talks. I feel like I shared my heart, asked a few questions, you poured out your heart, mind and soul and somewhere in there we got interrupted and I had to leave the room. Uggh, I would never walk out on a friend when she was talking. Some of you have asked such deep questions. Ones I have been praying about and wanting to answer. I will be back tomorrow to share my heart and thoughts, too.
But before I go to bed, I wanted to grab a quick minute to tell you where I’ve been. It’s been a crazy week, and it’s only Tuesday night :->.
When I got home Sunday evening, my friend Rachel came in town to stay with me for two days. She is the Sr Editor of the P31 devotions. We had meetings Monday and this morning. Yesterday I worked in the office catching up on emails and making sure we got all the orders filled for the Shaped with Purpose workbooks. We had over 70 orders. Wow, that was crazy.
Then Rachel and I came back to my house to hang out with my kids. Around 5pm, we left to meet Lysa and Melanie, our assistant editor, last night to talk about devotions ministry things we needed to cover. We got kicked out of the restaurant at 9:30pm because they needed to sweep under our table. It was a very productive meeting and we had great girlfriend-time, too.
Today I woke up and noticed it was kinda chilly and kinda quiet. I soon discovered that it was cold because our heat is broken downstairs and it was quiet because Andrew is sick. He’s got a low-grade fever and bad upper respiratory congestion and coughing. I kept warm today with a little heater at my feet and when I was in the kitchen, I turned on our electric stove to 550 degreees and left the oven door opened. It worked pretty well.
It’s 11:06pm EST and I still have on my sweat suit that I threw on to take Joshua to school at 8am. Nope, didn’t get a shower today. Hopefully tomorrow will be more promising.
