Busy, Busy

It's been busy this week but I'll write just a little to catch up with you.

Sunday and Monday Caroline and I went to Austin. I had a lunch at a conference on Monday. We were able to take advantage of some great deals (shopping). Care commented that we probably lost 5 pounds just by our laughter on the ride home. What a great time we had. I'm so thankful our family values laughter.

Work is steady as always. Big news is that I've decided (and felt lead) to pursue my Nursing Home Administrator's license. I'll start classes in the fall. I believe God has prepared me for this and I'm excited about the next phase of life.

The Texas Association of Homes and Services for the Aging is starting a new program called the TAHSA Leadership Fellow program. I'm delighted they (and my company) wanted me to be a part. I'll go for our first session next month. I'm looking forward to that.

I met with a "physical health mentor" today for the first time. It's a longer story for another day, but I'm looking forward to "clean eating."

Last night I met with my book club. I love those women! We discussed the book, Zippy, but also talked about many other things. What an interesting and interested group of women. Two are attorneys and one is a graphic designer. The kindergarten teacher and manager weren't able to make it. Such a serendipitous group. (Then there's me. :)

I continue to enjoy reading and painting. Our art class on Thursday nights is so much fun. I finished The Glass Castle the other night by Jeannette Walls. A poignant read and a memoir. I highly recommend it. Our oldest daughter, Katie Lea is just about through with it and it touched her, too.

Vann and I are heading to a Bed and Breakfast near San Angelo this weekend to celebrate our 28th anniversary. We'll be gone a couple of nighs and I'm looking so forward to spending that wonderful time with him.

Well, that catches you up with me and my world for now. I always love to hear from you.

Thankfulness brings JOY,

It's so fun to hear what's been happening in your life. Sure hope you enjoy your time away with Vann.

I'm hoping to learn more about your new "clean eating". Sounds interesting and like something I should be doing more of. (do you think my blizzards would be forbidden??)

Congratulations on your anniversary! I hope you are blessed with many more of them. (I'm getting married on Saturday!)

Well, more than anything, I want to hear how one becomes a "physical health mentor"!! That is a job for me!
