Woohoo!!! My inner child is very excited because my friend gets home today! Can't wait to see her this evening! ♥ Hey, I'm having friend withdrawal over here, can you tell?! Nevermind that I saw her the evening before she left, ten days is a long time in the life of an inner child! lol (Just so you know what the heck I'm going on about - my best friend was just away on study leave...imagine, the nerve of that woman to go away for ten whole days!!!)
So strange not to at least see her in church this week. Even when things are busy and we don't get to hang out regularly, we usually manage a quick hug and greeting on Sunday mornings. Speaking of Sunday, I had the scripture reading thrown at me literally at the last minute. M was supposed to read it, but wasn't feeling well and was worried she'd break into a coughing fit in the middle of reading. So a few minutes beforehand, she popped up to the choir loft, handed me her bible and asked if I would read it instead. Good thing the children's story dragged on this week, gave me time to find the passage and read it through to myself before reading out loud. Actually, reading out loud isn't something that stresses me in the slightest, but it's nice to at least have a quick advance peek at the content to make sure there are no unpronounceable names, etc. (I'd be waaaaay uncomfortable, not to mention tongue-tied, talking to a crowd off the top of my head, but reading from a book - no problemo!)
And that's about all I have to say for today...so will add some photos for your viewing pleasure. They are completely unrelated to the above content, but whatever...just enjoy them, ok!??! I just liked the winter light, and the shadows on the snow. The first two would be what the cats were looking at out the window in "yesterday's" entry...the others are out back of my house.
