I had breakfast with about 25 of our ladies who could break away this morning and come to a casual breakfast at Perkins. Any time I get to spend with "my ladies" is a blessing. They are one of God's greatest gifts to me. I always ask myself, "how did I get THIS blessed to have THESE women?" I love our ladies so much sometimes I think I'm just going to burst with the goodness of God over it!!! I love them ALL --they have been such an amazing blessing in my life. We enjoyed about two hours of talking and eating, and Candy gave away some special gifts. I didn't have a guest speaker or anything this morning, just shared with them for 3-5 minutes and we talked, which is what we love to do best! I love our ladies... did I mention that?
