I truly believe in finishing my weekend centering myself - church, family, rest, repeat!
I stayed up really late. I woke really tired. I headed to church knowing that it would be a long day. I arrived to our church with 15 minutes to spare before we needed to leave to support Mommy's speaking engagement at a Women's Day event for a neighboring church. We piled into two cars and headed on our way.
I rode with some of my favorite people - fabulous Janice, dear ol' Daddy and a pouty (equally as tired as I) Munchface. I learned a lot about green smoothies, juicing, homemade healthy ice cream and more along the way... We arrived and settled into our seats. It was a great service and I thank God this woman:
... Was able to stand, to educate, to encourage and to overcome the health issues from last week. My mom is amazing and I appreciate her realness. She isn't one to bite her tongue, she doesn't hide her feelings, she is sensitive and tough... sweet and spicy.
It was a great time and made for the perfect start to my day! I hurried home to nap before grocery shopping. Speaking of grocery shopping, I finally allowed Munch to try the watermelon Oreos. Once we both got our naps, we were back to our normal selves - she wasn't pouting and I wasn't grumpy.
Her reaction to the cookie was priceless!!

I haven't tried the Oreos... yet. Munch took one cookie to her Grandma Judy. They shared a moment enjoying the Oreos then the kid came begging me to allow her to stay up a little later; she wanted 15 more minutes with her grandma. I said yes and what did they do? Color.
Praying for a productive week!
