Spaghetti Dinner - Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Ok, this is my last post for Monday, I posted a Tagged post from Kathy, my Sunday post, and this is my "official" Monday post.

I had my spaghetti dinner on Saturday. I made so much food!!! We had so much spaghetti that we ate spaghetti at Jessie's going away party and I still had 4 ziploc bags of spaghetti! HA! I don't know why I have such a reputation for making too much food!!

I will post the pics later because we used all the battery yesterday for Jessie's last day in Michigan, and I left the camera in my purse and forgot to charge the battery.

Except for Phyllis no one in my family was able to make it, most of them live pretty far. It's a long way to come for spaghetti. Plus, everyone is busy.

My "church" family was there. The Hatley's (Lt. Dan & Patty aka Lucy), The Smith's (Dean, Sara, & Mac), The Wilburn's (Barry & Arlene), Charlene (Patty's sister), Doreen, Michael (muscle Mike), The Weavers (Dick & Jeanette), The Bowdlers (Elizabeth, Randy, Chris, & Elizabeth's Mom), The Kallegren's (Scott, Scott, Hope, David), The Tosch's (Scott, Tiffani, & Trinity). And my friend Eliz from work brought her two beauties.

It's always hard at these things because it's hard to talk to everyone and I hope they understood.

I can't even tell you in my heart how much this meant to me! To think I've raised about $400 from this event in various donations and the money collected that night. I know so many people are praying for me, wishing me well, and supporting me in many ways.

Everyone seemed to like the scrapbook I put together.

I don't know, this post I think sucks because I can't seem to find the words. I am usually never at a loss for words (usually I have entirely too many).

I've said it before, this whole experience has been incredible for me. In many ways I wish I would have done it sooner, but I believe that God's timing is everything, and I needed to be where I was to do it, and to find the healing my heart has always longed for.

Psalm 30:2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
