Has it really been a whole month already…and where the hell did April go…it’s gone in a flash. I must say though, April, my favorite, my “birthday” month has been a blast. I can honestly say that I have lived fully and intentionally this last month…leaving it all on the field (or trail).
The month kicked off with Holy Week – crazy enough as it is but when you add being a church employee to the mix it can be downright miserable. Terrible right? Sometimes that’s just where I find myself…don’t judge. There wasn’t any cooking…or time at home during the week for that matter.
The following week a couple of my friends and I started a young women’s Bible study. This probably is the thing I am most proud of this month. You know how when you have a good idea and that’s where it stays…an idea? Well this one has come to fruition and it’s been the greatest blessing. I have discovered on this journey that contrary to my tendency to want to go about most things solo, I find that company makes cooking so much more fun. We spend our first hour or so together cooking a meal, laughing, sharing and enjoying each other. Not only am I sharing The Word, hopefully these girls will come to love their kitchen much sooner than I did (am). Other than Monday…not much cooking…
The third week was AWESOME – hiking the Grand Canyon for my birthday…leaving it all out there – completely living out loud. Not only did I complete a bucket list item, challenge myself to the physical limits…I spent a week focused on my marriage…that can be just as challenging but certainly rewarding. #Thisis45 – bring it on!
This week has just been busy with life. The girls on Monday, helping a friend on Tuesday, graduation preparation tonight and supporting my husband tomorrow at a work function…living into all the relationships I have been blessed with!
Thanks for listening and journeying with me!
