Getting ready for the big night!



I took today off most of today in preparation for "the big day" tomorrow. (The funeral and the Christmas Tea) I had crammed yesterday to take off some time today and I was so glad I did. I read Tom Rees's ezine today and it was on margins in life and how we need them. It made me glad I had made this choice to take some time off today. There were so many things on my mind for the tea, but I needed a moment to breathe. The truth is, no matter how ready I am I never feel ready enough. I always feel like I need to be re-detailing the details. Honing the message up til the last minute.

Larry let me sleep in and got Savanna up and ready for school. I did some things around the house, and caught up on doing some things for myself. Larry found a few moments to take a look at my car and evidently it was a simple wire that needed to be cleaned. It's running again and I feel like I have my life back. When Dustin got home we needed to take him down to work at the church for a few hours and Larry and I went to Westshore. I got him his shirt for his birthday that he has been wanting -- a Penguins Sidney Crosby shirt. He put it on right in the store and wore it home. We spent a little time together shopping and headed back to the church where I put some finishing touches on just for a few moments that I needed to take care of for tomorrow night.

In the morning we have the funeral and then I have to finish up things for tomorrow night, get ready and get back to the church with the boys. They are both serving and Dustin and I are doing a duet. I get so excited for these outreaches, but also in anticipation of them being over. The adreneline that it takes to get through them is immense. I keep telling myself, this time tomorrow night it will be over, things will be cleaned up and hopefully I'll be sitting in my jacuzzi thanking God for all that was accomplished and that somebody's life was really changed. That's the goal.
