WORST DAUGHTER OF THE YEAR!!!
UGGGG! I can't believe it. I didn't get around to calling my Mom yesterday for her BIRTHDAY!!! It hit me in the wee hours of the morning this morning. I had already sent her gift, so I didn't have that as the reminder. Truth is..... I thought about it yesterday morning, but couldn't call because it was too early. Then, we got into our Christmas rehearsals and it was pretty intense because we have a lot of new things to learn, AND I was hosting our Community Group dinner last night. So, I was a little overwhelmed in the kitchen. Time just got away. The sick part is.... What did I JUST write about on Tuesday. Take time in the moments, people matter.... not the to do list!! Oh, how I need Jesus.
My Mom doesn't forget anyone's birthday. I mean really. She even knows when Shelley and Leigh's daughters birthdays are and sends them a card. Of all people!!! Ugh. Okay, I've got to move on. I'll talk to her when she wakes up today. Here's the thing. She's my Mom and she will forgive me. I think one of the biggest things that she has shown me through her example is God's grace. She loves me no matter what. Not that I want to take advantage of that, but I know it's true. I have one of the greatest Mom's in the world!! So M
Tonight we are pretty excited. We are singing at the "lighting of the Christmas tree" at Opryland Hotel. I think it's going to be the perfect night for it. Crisp and Cold:) Then we get to take our kids through the new "Ice" exhitbit out by the hotel.
Here's a pic from last years "Ice" adventure.
I'm sure that we will have lots of pics in the next blog. I do have to show off my mantel and dining table. My friend Kirsten who is ever so creative helped me.
I love creative people because I am not. Thank you for Kirsten for helping me:)
Off to rehearsals at Leigh's house today. Then we will be at Opryland tonight. But first I have to run basketball shoes up to school because one of my beloved children forgot his. I guess I'll be kind today, since I'm hoping my Mom offers me the same grace.
Have a blessed day!
