Joyous Times......

The wedding was beautiful. The day began early for me as I was requested to provide lunch for the family and attendants meaning a morning of preparing sandwiches and fixin's that Thom and I delivered to the venue at noon.

Upon arriving with the meal I was thrilled to find an old CPC client of mine was coordinating the event. When her child aged out of the EWYL program she was working as a CNA and aspiring to create a party planning business. It had been 4 years since our last meeting and I was beyond excited to see her success!

We returned at 3:00 for the ceremony and celebration. Great food and great company. We provided a ride home for Alexia's mom and landed exhausted at Camp Carney near 9:00 p.m..

Up and on our way to Gastonia after worship and SS on Sunday. Four birthdays.....they loved the cakes and I am so blessed with these precious grandchildren.

Monday was a haircut and household duties while Thom golfed. We had a fun dinner with Colleen and Mike and the kids at Fuddruckers where a fundraiser for a men's ministry we are a part of was being held. What a fun time.

Tuesday, election day I avoided the relentless news coverage with a trip to Gastonia and full day with Brian, Olivia and Brady. We shopped for their OCC boxes and simply enjoyed a day together. We shared pizza with my mom and aunt and after hours at the store that endeavor ended. I joined the Kahns at Olivia's volleyball game then headed home.

We remained awake till midnight and woke up at 2 a.m. to ascertain results but didn't enjoy the moment of victory till 6:00 when we got out of bed. So thankful the Lord has seen fit to keep this country from the total moral destruction of the democratic platform. Praying for Trump.

Wednesday was an unheard of day off from CPC. Clients had cancelled and rescheduled so I had the full day. Knowing that, I had made plans to have a dinner guest, an old high school friend I hadn't seen in 50 years. Amazingly his mother lives in the next town and he was here visiting her and called me. He has been living in Michigan since Viet Nam and we managed to reconnect through the class reunion FB page. It would have been so great to see him again but as luck would have it he fell ill and had to cancel. He'll be back in April so hopefully we can have him visit Camp Carney in the spring.

This morning was errands and a quick visit to CPC to drop off a cake donation for another fundraiser and pick up the scholarship applications. Six EWYL clients applied for the $500 Barbara Baldwin Scholarship and it is going to be a hard job deciding who is most deserving. Thom and I will meet with Debra and Alexia one day next week to make the choice. 

A walk and odds and ends for the remainder of the day. 

So much to do and so blessed with ways to serve our Lord......
