Fun (?) Friday

I have actually had people say to me, "so are you pumped all the time?  By your blog and facebook it appears you have a perfect life and you are always happy."  Well, yes, and..........no.  People get a little skeptical sometimes around people who are always pumped about stuff.  Well let me just say first of all that I am always pumped and hyped about SOMETHING because I have stuff to genuinely be pumped and hyped about.  That's is reality.  Second, even when I have things to be upset about, I choose joy and make a decision to respond in faith.  

I always do have things to look forward to.  I'm very stoked about the weekend, excited about what's going to happen at Celebration, thrilled beyond words for what God is doing and I have the most incredible people in my life.  At the same time this wasn't the most exciting "Fun Friday".  It's the kind of Friday I normally hate.  My reality was that I spent the majority of my day at the doctor's office.  Not the most fun place to be on a day off, but a place I was grateful to be in, to get some issues taken care of.  

I am feeling kind of blah because one of my issues that needed to be addressed is that I have two pink eyes.  I love pink, but not on my eyes.  I can't wear contacts, makeup or anything like that and need to let this heal the next day or two.  Hopefully I can look normal whatever normal is again for Sunday but if not oh well, our people will love me anyway and quite truthfully I don't think any of them care if I have glasses or make up on.  Thanks for praying for me for this and other things that I am still getting worked out that I would rather not post here -- they are kinda personal and not blog material but I covet your prayers.
 
Even though I am looking and feeling not myself I am going to have dinner with some friends.  I canceled with my walking partner, Liz, tonight and told her I was at the doctor's most of the day but didn't have the heart to tell her I was going to dinner later on.  That's because last night when we walked she said to me, "um, Deanna, the next time you cancel our walk because you're going out to dinner with friends, David (her husband) said you have to take us with you!"  It's not that I wouldn't want to go to dinner with Liz and David but this is a different kind of night, a girls night out.  So I kept that part a secret.  Liz doesn't read my blog or any blogs, nor is she on facebook so fortunately this will be our little secret.   I will walk with her tomorrow God willing although I have to go to another Dr.'s appointment tomorrow to follow up on some things from today.  See I told you my life wasn't perfect.

Hopefully this dinner out with some girlfriends will be the "pump" and the "hype" of my day.  :)  So there ya go...GIRLS NIGHT OUT.....A-May-Zing!!!  Incredible!!!  Nothin' like it!!!  Shout now everybody in the house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
