Then, the girls and I spent the afternoon making jewelry out of pop cans. I made it and they modeled. Another fun break in the day. They were wonderful.
But, tonight I dreaded going to church to practice singing for Sunday's service. It's my last time singing at Lake Forest since I'm on the launch team to start the new church. I was back to being down and I also couldn't get a sitter so the girls were tagging along with me. You never know how that's going to go! I got there and everyone was very welcoming of the kids. Already made me feel better. Then I got to hang out with 2 wonderful ladies, Reeve and Liz.
|Me and Liz, my super pick me up friend.|
|This is super blurry, but Molly made a bed for her and bunny white right on stage.|
|Me singing. Taken with Reeves phone!|
Liz is one of those friends who will just randomly text me great little pick me ups out of nowhere. She's the best. Just hanging with these 2 ladies gave me another needed boost.
And at the end of the night, Lilly got the treat of her life when Kyle let her sing one of his songs on the mike with the full band behind her. Molly did a lovely interpretive dance during the guitar solo. You never saw 2 happier little girls. Made my night.
So....the point of this very LONG blog post is.....
The box is bad.
Friends are good.
Life is beautiful.
