We all made it home safely! My daughter came home early with a swollen eye but other than that, all is good. She had so much fun and I'm thankful for the wonderful, Christian family that continues to invite her to join their family camping experiences. I remember joining my friends when I was my daughter's age - priceless memories. Prayers of thanks and appreciation to them.
Ed golfed, watched sports, fixed my desk drawer (SUPER HUGE THANK YOU AND KISS TO HIM FOR THIS ONE), vacummed, mopped, and had ALL the laundry done when I walked in the door! Super smooches to him!
The Christian Writer's Gathering was once again, a blessing! I learned so much and spent some time by the lake implementing new strategies, revisiting new ones, and in prayer. My friend who went with me enjoyed it too. We had a wonderful time of fellowship, writing, and prayer. I'll write more over the next few days, can't sum it up into one blog.
I did reconnect with friends made last year, made new friends, and I read once again for open-mic. The new twist this year...it was held in the main tabernacle!! It was such a blessing. Many hearts healed with God's strength with stories written to help others heal...I was blessed to listen to so many amazing and powerful stories.
Our foreign exchange student arrives tomorrow around 4:30 in the afternoon. We are so excited and since Ed has the house clean already, I can concentrate on the little things to prepare for her visit. We haven't bought groceries yet because I want her to help select items she likes.
Sorry for the random notes today! I might blog later tonight (yes, twice in one day) if I get home in time. We are attending a surprise birthday party for my brother
