Updating, Catching Up and looking forward to the weekend.....

I just had to post this picture this is what it looks like outside today. It has been raining all day long, when you work in an Elementary School, rain is not the most popular thing (even though we desperately need it!!) I am so glad it is Friday, and the weekend is finally here. This week has been a somewhat regular week, other than having subs on Thur and Friday due to Teacher Conferences. The students are just a little more than ready for the weekend. I guess they are just like adults in needing routine.

The Ladies Retreat is this weekend in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinbug and I am sorry to say I couldn't make it this year. I have missed several days from work this month and could not get away at this time. Keep them in your prayers for a safe trip. Ladies I will be with you next year!!!!

On another note, my sweet Aunt Betty from Michigan is on her way down South for a visit. I am so excited, can you tell. She should be arriving at my house apprx. 4-5 pm. My cousin Sharon is coming with her and her husband Bill. I miss them so much and am looking forward to seeing them. If you remember I visited with her and all of her daughters during Fall Break. We had so much fun just being girls (females!!) lol

Thank you for the prayers for my Mother. She is doing much better, she is home from hospital and my sister is taking care of her. Please continue to pray for my Mother and my sister as she takes on the challenges that go along with caring for an elderly parent. She is so strong and she is doing a wonderful job.

I hope you all find time to have family fun this weekend and just relax from a week of work.

Yeah! The weekend is here!

I hate it for you that you're missing the Ladies Retreat. I know you always love it and have fun.

I'm so glad your Mom is doing better. Praise God. Have a wonderful time with your family.

Hugs!

I know that you are so excited about your family coming in this weekend!!
I know that they are very excited to see you too.
I am glad that your mom is feeling better. You can always rest easier knowing that she is doing better and have someone to look after her.
