A great day!!

Often even when I think things are hard, God reminds me how He never leaves me. 

I got to sleep in until 7:30 this morning which honestly is 1.5-2 hours longer than I normally sleep in until, UNLESS I choose to sleep in.

I went to bed thinking I'd just relax all day! (Am I the only one who laughed out loud at that??) 

Needless to say, I got up and within a half hour I was making sloppy joes for 80 people for a serving opportunity on Thursday. Once that was done I did decide to relax and just watch last week's shows and has lunch with my beautiful girl. We had a great time catching up on our week, talking about her new job, and whatever kinds of stuff. 
We were driving home and saw this old rocking chair and I looked at it and thought "I wish I knew someone having a baby..." And all of a sudden I was like "Michelle!!!" Duh. Sometimes I'm such an airhead!! I had been trying to think off something special to give her but I don't have any talent... And my daughter said that she could refinish it and that makes it super special!! It's funny how God answers our prayers even when i am an airhead.
I came home after that and cooked all the taco meat for the mission trip, got the spaghetti meat/sauce cooked. It's already to be frozen for next week. (Did I mention I have to precook the dinner food for the mission trip? It was either that or no showers. I have aversions to smell... So precooking the food was the best option!!)
Next is noodles and Mac&cheese sauce!! It's all coming together! Just keep moving forward and get it done!

I think it's odd that I relax when cooking, but today was a beautiful gift!

I know that my day may have seemed busy and crazy to everyone else but it was completely relaxing to me!!

Now I'm gonna take a nap :)

Sending love!
