Countdown

Today is my Friday at work.  Yahoo

The convention I've worked so hard on all year starts tomorrow.  The Convention Chair is calling me constantly with issues and concerns.  I fear she will collapse on Sunday.  The Outreach Committee is doing a wonderful scavenger hunt for the newcomers.  We have 360 residential clients from all over the city who will be bussed in on Saturday from various facilities and they are always the highlight for us all.  My home group is feeding all of them at noon and others will take the dinner hour.  I bought a purple spiral notebook last night to put in my hotel room so that I can write down the blessings I receive while I'm there.

The biggest problem I've encountered so far is that I can find only one of my black heels that match my outfit for the Saturday night banquet.  Where is my other shoe???

God brought me to this beautiful program when absolutely nothing in my life was beautiful.  I am so grateful for this.

It must be at my house? Now you don't happen to have my blue nike sneaker that is missing? I swear, I do not understand how I can lose a shoe but manage to do so on a regular basis.

Maybe your shoe got stuck in someone's butt or something during a rant. Just kidding! Have a great time at the convention. I find them inspiring.
