Just love "fallin' back"!

"Fall back, spring ahead!"  That's how you remember what to do on daylight savings time days, at least it's how I remember.  I love it in the fall when we get extra sleep.  Sunday is always a little sweeter with extra sleep time since my day starts WAY before the sun comes up, usually.  It's going to be an amazing day at Celebration!  Today among whatever amazing things God decides to do, the church is having pastor appreciation.  They've been cooking up something secretly for well over a month and I'm assuming we'll find out today.  Even my kids haven't told me what it is.  They are good that way.

This week guess what I'm going to post...TRUE CHURCH STORIES ALL WEEK!!!  Yes, get ready for some great laughs and check back every day to see what hilarity I'm going to share.

My weekend so far was really awesome.  I took Friday as a sacred day.  Much needed.  Soaked in moonlight path, got my nails done, went out with some girlfriends that night and saw "For Colored Girls" by Tyler Perry.  Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  I really don't know what to say after that.  I'm still digesting the movie, quite frankly.  It's one of the most intense I've ever seen.

Yesterday after life coaching I had some things to do at the house, and then Bernie and Lisa had us over for dinner - she made some Uh-May-zing clam chowder.  Always a great time at the Currie's.

I could eat soup every day of my life and be happy.  I'm sure everyone really wants to know that.

Happy Sunday!!!

If you loved the movie, check out the book. The author, Ntozake Shange, calls it a "choreopoem." The book's name is "for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf." It was written in 1975.

I am glad I saw it (I thought it was VERY well done) but would not want to see it again. Candy said the same thing. She sobbed through most of it...we held hands to support one another and my jaw was so tight when I left there because I clenched my teeth tightly for almost the entire thing. I felt like my head was going to explode when we left, it was so emotional. We sat there at the end when the credits were rolling and tried to process it a little bit. I felt like an emotionally wrung out rag when it concluded. I am wondering if all of my black friends relate well to this movie or if it is just a composite of a certain segment of black culture...so I will be asking them these type of questions about the movie once they've had a chance to see it.
