Today was a very quiet and peaceful day. Nothing traumatic, nothing hugely even blog worthy. I just felt I should blog anyway. Illness seems to be spreading around these parts rapidly. At work this week we had a few "call offs". I had a bit of a cold that lasted a week or so but nothing that kept me down for long. At Church today none of my 7&8 year old kiddos showed up for class and it was a sparse number in the congregation. I thought maybe it was because I was a speaker today. The first 2 speakers ahead of me didn't take very long and left me a lot of time. I looked at Jack with a little bit of "great, I have to fill this in for 25 minutes" angst. Always having my back and knowing I can talk up a storm he just said: "Pretend you're talking to your sister." (We do tend to chat a bit long) He's so funny. Anyway, it all went well and I'm probably off the hook for speaking for another year! I was suppose to give this talk last month but God saved me by sending a blizzard. No such luck today! In fact, we've had pretty nice weather the past few days. All that snow melted with warm temps.
