It is time to blog

I cannot believe that it has been two weeks since I have had time to blog. Whew.

I have been so very busy. Canning, college prep for two boys, working and general stuff at home that I seem to be behind on AGAIN.

We will take son # 2 to IWU this week. Son # 3 started last week at UA. Then it will be back to writing, working, and just the two of us.

Amazing how quickly you get used to two. I absolutely love having my kids home, and I miss them desperately when they are gone, but oh it is nice just having to do for the two of us.

I really have to buckle down and get this book finished. My deadline is looming. The end of October/beginning of November. Plus I have writing for the COF 365 day devotional for Barbour publishing, and two stories to submit for two other compilations. Hopefully one of my stories will be picked up for Chicken Soup for The Soul, and the Guideposts Incredible Power of Prayers series. I guess we'll find out after the first of the year.

I will begin a new cycle of GriefShare next Tuesday at NPCC. This will be my fourth year of facilitating. What an awesome support group this is! I have seen so many people come to the classes and even repeat classes until they feel that they are on the road to healing. How exciting and rewarding.

I will be going to NPCC tomorrow to help prepare food to sell in the cafe before the 1st Wednesday service. I love doing this! Next month we have a Married Life Live that is a great night out for couples, and great food too! (I know this for a fact since Jean and I cook it!) We have fed as many as 650 people! Whew a lot of work, and boy are we exhausted.

Oh well gotta run. I have dinner to clean up from.

Hi Becki -

I went through GriefShare after my husband's death 2 1/2 years ago. It's a wonderful support group, and I highly recommend it.

I popped over here from Facebook and signed up as a Follower. :)
