Ladies Day!

Happy Mother's Day or Ladies Day to you!  I think it is super important to remember all of the women out there who are not officially moms, whether it's their decision or not.  So I enjoy wishing people a Happy Mother's Day, but if you are a lady who is not a mom, Happy Ladies Day to you!!

At church tomorrow we are dedicating 18 kids!  Holy wow!  18?!  And I have to speak, yikes!  That is why I married a guy who likes to be up front, who loves speaking to a crowd.  Me-I will be in the back doing the dirty work, cleaning things, or making sure people have what they need.  Not tomorrow, I am front and center.  Which is going to be fun for some, putting 2 and 2 together...hardly anyone knows who I am, they will be shocked to know I am married to Eric.  They have heard my name numerous times, and everyone seems to know that blonde curly haired girl that shows up with me each week, but no one really knows me.  If you remember, could you say a little prayer for me...I hate this up front stuff, but I know it's important to show support to all of the families up there. 

My mom left this morning, boo!  We had a great time while she was here, Molly was super tired yesterday, she slept for almost 4 hours!  Poor kid, us old ladies wore her out!  My dad is coming this week to help us paint our house, yea!  His help will be so appreciated, and I think Eric might have wanted to cry when I told him my dad would be here Wed-Sunday.  We have been uncovering a lot of things we had no clue were there, like mold in the bathroom under the wallpaper, fun stuff like that you know.  But it's all been okay, we feel so grateful to call our little humble home ours.  It's all ours, mold and all.  We also have had so much help and support from wonderful friends here.  It's just been awesome.

I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow and hopefully get some quiet time, or whatever you need/deserve on this special day!!  I want a nap and a long walk.  But we will see how the day unfolds!  Blessings and happiness to all you ladies!

I like "Ladies day" too. My hubby (who is a pastor) did a blessing last year for moms and then for all the daughters (which is every lady). A lot of people enjoyed that. I will pray for your morning. Relax and enjoy it!:)

Ladies Day is such a sweet idea! I love it!!! :) I'll say a prayer for you - I despise speaking in front of people!!

I don't like public speaking either. My hubs could care less. Throw him in front of millions and he just busts out speaking. Crazy. You will do great.
Glad you had such a great time with your mom.
Better show pictures of the freshly painted house:) I love painting things...always makes it so new looking:)
Happy Mother's Day to you.

Praying for you this morning, Kate. That is so sweet that you are working away behind the scenes and others don't know that you are the Pastor's wife! =)

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Mother's/Ladies Day!

Love to you,
Kelly

I like the "ladies day". I will have to remember that one for in the future!

Sorry y'all found mold in the house. I am sure that is frustrating. I hope Eric and your dad are able to get a lot accomplished.

I also hope that everything went well this morning. I am sure it did.

Happy Mother's Day!
