I've registered at the online Chocolate Registry... so anyone who wants to can look me up under "French Toast Girl" (should you be in a chocolate-gifting mood....).
Yesterday I had lunch with two of the Wild Women, Gina and Angela (hi guys!) and Gina had made me a homemade valentine, with a pink bag all done up with tissue paper and chocolates — and a jar of Nutella! A woman after my own heart!
My friend Bar's son died this weekend. He was 2. His name was Forrest.
If you read some of Bar's letters, you will see how amazing her strength and faith were, and how much she and her husband learned from Forrest in his short life. They will need that strength and faith more than ever now. Please keep them in your prayers.
My talk could not have gone better. Before my talk started, a few women took me into a side room and prayed over me. I felt so much calmer and ready to do anything... and then I gave my talk and it was great! Afterwards, I could have run around the outside of the building 4 or 5 times.... I had that much energy. The best part is that since I was first, I could relax then and enjoy and help out for the rest of the retreat.
Also, there was MUCH chalking going on this weekend... we covered a whole sidewalk and spilled over into the parking lot. I can't wait until the pictures get developed!
