The school office has now seen me bra-less.

The Weightman Middle School office staff has now seen me without a bra on. Lovely.  And to further give TMI, I am one of those people that it is noticeable should I not be wearing a bra. [Sigh]  Please relax:  I was wearing a shirt of course, just not the proper undergarments.  :)  But still!!!

What a crazy morning I had yesterday.  It was THE Monday of all Mondays.   I woke Savanna up for school. Unbeknownst to me she went back to sleep, which never happens. I mean, the girl is up like clockwork, actually EXCITED to go to school EVERY BLESSED DAY OF THE SCHOOL YEAR.  I'm so blessed that she is a kid who loves school and absolutely hates to miss, and can't wait to get there!  She's on the honor roll too, every quarter.  (Go, Savvy!  So proud of my girl!)  Well, for once in her life, she went back to sleep.  Probably has something to do with the fact that we waited to adjust to daylight savings time on Monday instead of Sunday!  :)   I truly am not upset with her for sleeping, I mean she's pretty much the easiest child in the world when it comes to school -- (thus far, knock on wood...) and I have zippo to complain about.  Lesson learned.  Stuff happens.

But the bra-less part...that is what I'm writing about today.  This post is not about oversleeping.  It's about being bra-less when you don't want to be.  I thought she had already gone to the bus but she hadn't.  I was not showered or dressed for work yet, still in PJ's.  She burst in my room and said, "Mom, please take me to school, I accidently went back to sleep!!!"   So I am standing there in pj's, unshowered, unbrushed teeth, glasses/no contacts, and bra-less, but I said, "Quick, hop in the car!  Let's go and I'll get you there ASAP so you don't miss anything!"  And I left the house and got in the car ...exactly like that.  I never expected her to be late for school and since she has never been late, I wasn't exactly up to speed on the school rules.  Years ago I did drop the boys off  when they were running just a few minutes late and missed the bus but school hadn't started yet.   I got them there quickly and they just walked in with all the other kids who were arriving.  I have never brought the kids before when it was an "official tardy."  I just never expected my kid to be seriously tardy.  Okay so call me a perfectionist, but I don't bother to learn school rules that I don't believe my kids or I will ever break. 

Fast forward:  so then she says, "Oh Mom, YOU HAVE TO GO IN WITH ME. THEY DON'T ALLOW LATE KIDS TO JUST BE DROPPED OFF." WHAT????????????????!!!!!!!!!!   Are.  You.  Serious!!??   I could not just let her off at the doors of the school?  OMG.  And yes, I do mean oh my God.  I was crying out to God wondering what in the world I was going to do.  I was so embarrassed.

To say I was totally freaked out ........understatement of the decade.

Didn't want her to be later than she was. Didn't want to be late myself to work and this was already putting me behind. So I bit the bullet and walked in the school office like I was.  Oh DEAR LORD, what we GO THROUGH IN RAISING KIDS SOMETIMES!!!!!!!!!!! 

I hope she looks back and "rises up and calls me blessed" for this.  Well, actually she will probably rise up and say, "Mom, was crazy." 

Whatever.

I'm glad somebody else has those moments..."ODG (Oh dear God..) I hope no one sees me." Very funny Deanna, but I feel your stress! (Blessed/cursed with the same problem.) Just think of all the stories your kids will have to pass down! Seriously, you need to write a book about all your life lessons! Made me LOL once again! Today...I needed that!

and to think that my FB status yesterday was that I had just repeated my mother's history and ran Jonnie to the bus stop in my pj's....my whine....holds no candle to you, PD. You're the Momma! Savanna needs to submit you for a mom of the year award for that one, simply because it's so far out of character for both of you!
OH PD! It's days like that, that make me wish the day were already over so I could start over!
Oh believe me, I felt that way PL!!! Boy did I ever.

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee
