Thanking God on Friday!

** Sorry there was no To Do Thursday...the workshop took all of my time yesterday. It will return next week because I know that all of you are on the edge of your seats wanting to know what I've gotten done.

~ I am thankful that my workshop went smoothly and that people enjoyed themselves. I'm thankful that my friends came out to support me and helped me to get through my first workshop (I'll post about it on Tuesday).

~ I am thankful for my prayer warrior friends. It's encouraging to know that there are people praying for me through good and not-so-good times, to lift me up, and to hold me accountable.

~ I am thankful for my friend Katie. She is going to help me make cherry pie filling tomorrow and I can't wait. This will be the second time Katie has helped me make something from scratch (see the first time here).

~ I am thankful for self awareness and conviction. This week I've had a lot of talks with myself and there are some things that have been revealed to me that need to change or be reevaluated. This is all good stuff to me because it makes me keep my priorities in order. I think it's good from time to time to stop, look at yourself and say "what am I doing?"

I am so glad that your workshop went well too. Those can be stressful but fun.
Having friends that pray is worth more than gold. I need some more self awareness these days...gotta work on a few things myself.
Happy Friday.

I knew your workshop would be great! I'm glad everything went smoothly! I can't wait to see your post about it:) YUMMO! I sure hope you are planning to share the cherry pie filling recipe and some pics! Self awareness is a great thing...I wish everyone {including myself} had a little more of it!

I am glad your workshop went great. I can't wait to hear more about it!

Oh the working on myself I need to do. Reason for needing a book to read. I'm gonna pick one of those up this weekend.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!!

It's hard to think seriously about what we're doing...especially as a mom, I often wonder if I'm making the right impact on our kids and I definitley know i need to get my priorities in order! Whew! We're always works in progress ;)
