Where I've been this Weekend...
Monday, March 30, 2009
I just want my team to know that I haven't abandoned you! Saturday morning I went to a bridal shower for my niece. Then I had a wonderful opportunity to go away with my daughter overnight. I rented a cottage from a friend's mom, and DD and I went there just to get time away from everything. Other than going out for dinner, we each spent most of our time meditating and having a lengthy time to be alone with God's Word. We didn't turn the TV on, and we didn't shop. I guess there would be people who wouldn't understand time spent this way, but that was our whole intent for the overnighter: to have a spiritual retreat (and to get DD away from her busy life before baby #3 comes!). I thank God for this wonderful time away I could have with Him and with my DD.
The down side of this was that I didn't track my food for a few days. Got home yesterday, went to the grocery store, then a birthday party for grandson's 4th birthday. I didn't do so well getting a grip on things today, but tomorrow will be totally in control and tracking!
