The Journey Begins

I am really stepping out of the box this week.

I am going to a retreat in Sedalia, Colorado Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. It is part of the class I am taking in Seminary.

I don't know what I am getting into.

I am all alone right now. My oldest is at hemophilia camp in Texas, and my husband and little one are in Houston visiting family. It's just bizarre being alone.

No one tugging at my shirt, no meals to cook, no laundry to wash....sounds like heaven don't you think?

Not even close.

I miss my "men" terribly. But, I am going to take advantage of this time to rest, reflect and hopefully connect with God.

How many people have this opportunity? I am definitely going to take advantage of the time.

What would you do with a week alone?

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. reading glasses
2. salads
3. clean clothes
4. loose change
5. playlists
