A Special Treat
Hosanna and I are off to spend the weekend together. What fun!
We have never had a weekend away, and, financially speaking, this is certainly not a time that we would plan one. However, we are not going to go spend money this weekend ... we are going to go earn money this weekend. Yes ... we have a job to do.
I have been hired by a curriculum company to be their sales representative at 3 homeschool conferences in the next 2 months. And, since I am doing the first 2 conferences by myself, they said it would be fine for me to bring Hosanna as a helper. (She is a GREAT helper, and I couldn't really imagine doing a conference all by myself.)
This weekend, we get to work at a conference in the Seattle area on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. So, we get to stay at a nice hotel and eat at restaurants (VERY fun for mommy/daughter time).
Next weekend, we get to spend Friday and Saturday at a conference in Eastern Washington. (And, we'll stay with a homeschooling family that lives in a "historic home".) Then, in June, I get to work a BIG convention down in Puyallup, where I lived for 10 years (which is REALLY fun because I get to see many of my old homeschooling friends).
I am PRAISING the Lord for ...
... financial provision.
... mommy/daughter time.
... big kids at home to take care of
little kids while mommy is gone.
(What a blessing that Gregg and
Lindsey both happen to be home.)
I am PRAYING for ...
... energy to do all the work that needs to be done.
Friday is an 11 hour day in the vendor booth.
... a BLESSED time with precious Hosanna.
Such a rarity ... but so necessary right now,
as she is about to enter her teen years.
... things to go smoothly at home, while mama is gone.
While all of the big kids are fully capable, there
are still a LOT of personalities to work with.
