It's been a long time since my last blog...I thought it would be easier to make the time to write every day! Last Saturday (the 18th), I went with a friend to El Paso, TX (a 3 hour trip), to deliver school kits to the Bishop's Storehouse there. It was such a rejuvenation to my spirit to have the time to just play...we spent the day shopping and eating out after our initial delivery. I have seen the carryover of peace and patience that comes from filling your own cup first throughout this past week.
So, the most exciting news of that weekend was that, (drumroll, please), after 34 years, I got my ears pierced for the first time. I am currently wearing a pair of cubic zirconian studs...and am excited for the world of earring possibilities that lie ahead. I have actually dealt with some infection in my right ear. It is amazing how painful such a little hole can be! All seems to be okay now though, so I'll continue to look forward to the end of March when I can change my earrings for the first time.
