Dear Friends, scrape me off the linoleum because I am totally floored by events happening in my life. Today on my dry-erase to-do board I wrote "Thankful Thursday" -how utterly appropriate.
My dear mother-in-law came over to watch Wilder so I could go around unencumbered to local women-owned businesses and spread the word about "An Uncommon Holiday Show & Sale." Armed with registration forms, a 1/2 sheet flier for the event and my brand-spanking new business cards (overnightprints.com rocks, folks) I made my way around The Square in Georgetown. I had no idea the blessings that would whop me in the face and I now stand on tired feet to tell the tale.
For one thing, I met some of the neatest people. And I had a slice of outstanding three-layered chocolate marble cake at The Red Poppy Cafe while I took a break. The serendipity of the day was truly insane.
I started my adventure asking God to put everything together -have the right people in the right places at the right time. Well, Amen and Hallelujah, that prayer was certainly answered. If I went into detail (like I usually do) I'd be here till the fat lady sings, so I'll just leave it at saying things were divinely arranged.
We (I always say "we" but it's really "I") have 14 booths signed up and the vendors are outstanding! The caliber of businesses keeps bumping up daily it seems and the enthusiasm I am met with when I share about Uncommon Women is so exciting! I think I was born to network, but weren't we all? It's about relationships and we're all relational creatures. Regardless if you agree or not, I had a marvelously encouraging and productive experience today. And I am thankful, on Thankful Thursday.
Dear God, thank you for so many blessings and a huge dose of encouragement. Help me stay on track, stay focused on what's important, to take time to be a still and know you, and to not miss out on the best things in life -like Wilder singing made-up songs and feeling my tiny baby kick inside my growing belly.
Many blessings to you, friends, and may you seek and receive encouragement today!
