A month ago I left my husband and my kids to spend 3 days with complete and total strangers! For the first time in a loooong time I did something completely on my own and it was very scary! No TV, no internet, and no… wait for it… cell phones for three whole days!! Now you know why it was so scary :).
This, as you can imagine, gave me time to look around and appreciate the little things like: silence. Those few days changed my life! I not only met some of the BEST most AWESOME women on the planet, I met with the love of my life! My Creator. I had all day to just rejoice in His presence! This is something I have to admit I hadn’t been able to do in a long time. The problem: time! You see, in between dirty diapers, dirty dishes and dirty pint sized hands I was left with a lot to keep up after. So, spending time with Him became an “in between” job. In between laundry and preparing lunch, in between vacuuming and checking Facebook:)), I lost sight of my purpose.
That’s where these ladies stepped in and (figuratively) slapped me around a few times and broke me down completely, only to build me right back up again. Only this time better, with a purpose! Yes, I spent three days with some of the best photographers in the business, but the most amazing thing was that we all shared a purpose, a love! That is our Savior! So, that’s how spending three days crying my eyes out along with all my new beautiful friends became some of the best days of my life.
I’d like to share with you the gorgeous place where I spent these days crying:), learning and growing! I also want to share with you some pictures of my new friends because I miss these ladies terribly and they are all beauties inside and out!
