I’m back from my womens weekend in the country. It was nice. Nice in the way that I didn’t have to lift a finger the whole time. (except for personal hygiene, just fyi) Food was terrific and pleeeeentiiiifuuuull. (Which did nothing for my diet. I mean “new healthy lifestyle” :) ) So, this moment is a new moment. We’re starting this moment right now. And enjoying it too.
The girls were adorable when I got home - all talking at once. I have to say, it is a bit of an adjustment to go from spoiled ladies retreat, to chaotic household. I’m just breathing. In. Out. In. Out.
The ladies were ladies, darn it if there aren’t a few downsides to a couple hundred women getting together. Do you get my drift? I’m all for mocking out everything in site. But MY hubby? I don’t think so. But I suppose there’s a few of those people in every group, right?
It was nice to sit with other ladies and get to know some of them. It was nice to grow closer to a couple friends from church. It was absolutely divine to have all the washing, cooking, and cleaning done for us! It was delectable to have a chocolate fountain and many, many other treats. I felt like a princess! And gifts! We got a goodie bag on arrival. Plus there were over 100 door prizes, and a large silent auction. I’m happy to get to create a new blog for one of the auction winners on Healing Graphics and Designs.
The speaker was Lee Ezell. Great grandmotherly wisdom, simple, SIMPLE Biblical truths that can truly change a life. There isn’t really a whole lot of theory or theology that can heal a wounded rape/ abuse victim. But Christ can. And it was very neat to speak to this lady who has gone through more atrocities than I can even imagine, and is happy and productive and fulfilled in life! She’s not exactly the grumpy grandparent type - a comediene is more like it. That was great and encouraging.
I got to journal a little. Reviving my journaling habbit is going to be quite high on my priority list over the next couple of days. Remember the days when you journaled regularly? Do you still? I let my journal fall by the wayside for the last couple years on and off. So its time to turn it on again. I`m excited about the learning and the emotional release that it will bring too. All good.
I had no emotional crisis or huge revelation. Just a really nice time. Where I was Cathy. Just Cathy. And I learned a little more about who that is. It was a great experience!
How was your weekend? I will be blog hopping later on tonight!
