I have the Monday blahs... Not much to write about, I am getting in the Christmas Spirit and feeling good and Holly Jolly, but alas, not too interesting so I will resort to the Blogging Bottle.
Question of the day...
Tell about a time that someone helped you in a time of need.
When I first became a homemaker we were on a squeaking tight budget. I counted EVERY penny. On one hand it was such a far cry from the financial abundance of the year before when I was still a career woman but you know what they say... The more you make, the more you spend. That was totally the truth. Actually, I was not complaining, I was home with my boys and it was really a victory to make it week by week. I was blessed.
Around the same time we had just started to attend a new church and I was really wanting to get to know the ladies better. I was excited that our new mega church had so much to offer but I got sad when I found out that the sign ups for the Women's Bible study and MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups I really wanted to join were due the same time. I was so sad that I would have to choose. I confided in a woman from my Sunday school class and the next thing I knew I had been signed up for both classes on scholarship. I was overwhelmed and so blessed by this act that whenever possible, I return the favor by buying an extra admission to ladies retreat or a luncheon or whatever is going on.
I will never forget the kindness of the ladies who took me in and made me their friend.
