I Give Up!


I give up! My brain is mushier than a bowl of overcooked spaghetti and I am soooo tired I can barely think straight.

I hate not writing but I just can't string two coherent thoughts together tonight.

I started my day with a funeral mass for a collegue in another agency. I was gone for the morning, and then the spaghetti supper was next.

We fed spaghetti, meatballs, sauce and caesar salad to what felt like the 5000. So many contributions from so many people made it an amazing evening, but now I am seriously out of steam and hopelessly tired.

We had fun, we were profoundly moved be the presentation after supper and we raised a heartening amount of money to help people in Armenia and the Ukraine.

God bless the people who said, "Sign me up to help again next year." Next year? First I think I will sink into the gift of Sabbath.

You deserve a good day of rest after these last few... The evening was a rousing success.

You know, I guess it was! But needed to let people know it was coming from Mrs. Mush-brain. :)

I'm sure I'm just one of a weary troupe this morning, but it was so worth it! :)

Dear Heavenly Father our prayer today is for Belinda to be renewed and showered with Your love and to filled again with Your holy spirit. We pray for a renewing of her mind on this day and into the coming week. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
