A Day With Friends and Family

     The prompt for week 57 of our GBE 2 group is "Two Days Ago".  I had hoped to get this written on Monday but wasn't able to accomplish that.  Since this week has been pretty boring, I am going to invoke my creative license and pretend like I am writing this on Monday.  I won't really be cheating since the idea for my post actually came to me on Monday.  Therefore, my two days ago was Saturday.

     Saturday was an awesome day!  The entire day was spent with friends and family and it doesn't get much better than that.  It started out bright and early, well maybe not so bright, when I got up at 5:00 a.m. and had breakfast with my hubby.  I don't normally get up that early since he fixes his own breakfast so this is a rare event for me.  I always enjoy time spent with hubby.

     After that, I got myself ready and gathered all my food and supplies to go to our second monthly Women's Prayer Breakfast at our church.  This is one of our new projects that has come from our newly reorganized women's ministry group which encourages all women to get involved through various opportunities.   Sister Jane decided to start a monthly prayer breakfast and I volunteered to help.    For this one I made baked french toast with nut topping and homemade cinnamon syrup and melon balls.  Jane made mini bacon quiche.  

    
      As good as the food was, that really wasn't the best part of the morning.  This time of fellowship and coming together to discuss and pray about our church, our community, our country and each other is such a heart warming experience.  I need this monthly renewing of my spirit and commitment and look forward to it enthusiastically.  

     Saturday afternoon, Jane, my niece Cheri, great niece Jayna and I went to Indiana to visit my dad for Father's Day.  

     After visiting awhile at his apartment, we took him out for dinner at Cracker Barrel and then to Wal-Mart to buy a new razor and groceries.  We had a wonderful time and I am always grateful for time spent with family.   And who wouldn't have a great time with this little cutie?


     By the time I got home I was worn to a frazzle, whatever that means!  But no matter how tired I was, it had been a perfect day.

Until next time...that's my view.
