...like a rollercoaster...




Ummm...if you look at these pictures, you will know how my day went yesterday...fun huh?!

It started at the beach with girlfriends...after the kids went to school! OK...it wasn't THAT beach in the picture, but we sure did our best to imagine that we were in the Caribbean on a little vacay! It's fun to dream right?! The beach was ah.maaa.zing...clear water...lots of sun...great company and conversations.

OK...next picture...
Got home at 2:00 and was going to LEISURELY shower and clean up before the kids got home...WRONG with a big 'ol capital W!!

My sweet, adorable dog Gracie pooped ALL over the house and let me tell you...I knew the moment I walked in the house! IT REAKED! It was under the pool table, on the wood floors....cleaned that up, took a 5 minute shower and headed to church to decorate for our women's event last night.

Tied over 150 balloons...came home just in time to help the boy with his math homework...couldn't find chin guards...ran to my room to look for them AND it hit me! That smell...AGAIN...GRACIE!!! We are now late for soccer practice but I HAVE to scrub the carpets the best I can. Race to get the boy to practice (10 min late)...head home to have 15 min to get ready for our event at church. Y'all...I still had beach sand on my face!! But tried covering it up with make-up...you know, "ACT AS IF..." I'd really washed my face after a day at the beach!

Phew...made it on time to set up, practice the drama, run through the songs we were singing...oh, and totally ate almonds on the way for dinner.

When our speaker got up to talk about "What defines you?", it was like my body just breathed a big sigh, my shoulders relaxed and I listened to Jesus speak to me through her. It was awesome, amazing, life changing, exciting...last night was the perfect, most best way to finish off my day.

The beach was like the ride up the big hill on a roller coaster...we anticipated having a great day, it was exciting and we enjoyed the slower pace of the day there :)

The big drop, up and down hills and a few loop-de-loops for the rest of my day...and I looked and felt that scary cat picture!!

BUT when the "ride" stopped...it was amazing and exhilarating!

Thank you Lord for this day that you made...craziness and all. It was worth going through it to get to the end!!
