Saturday Night Musings (complete with an odd but cool fact)

*Once again, I'm getting my post in just under the wire, but getting it in nonetheless.

*Brit had her home gymnastics meet today. I love how she always has a smile on her face and is encouraging those around her, no matter how she's doing herself.
I sure adore that girl.

*She didn't break her foot this year, which was a bonus... as opposed to last year at the same meet.

*I admit I was watching her feet on the balance beam, holding my breath hoping nothing happened this time around.
Then I realized how silly it was to worry and was able to enjoy the second half of the routine.  =^)
She scored a 9.25.
We're a *little* proud.

*We had a small group leaders appreciation dinner tonight at church. I am so thankful for these people who are willing to give their lives in the middle of the mess because they know they are called!!!
(Now, if more of us would just realize this truth and DO something about it. Some of you know... you know you're supposed to open your home and have people over on a weekly basis. But you keep thinking that life is messy and busy and crazy and full. If that's your excuse, then you're never going to wind up doing what God is calling you to do.
Because life will ALWAYS be messy and busy and crazy and full!!!
We are called in the MIDST of that.)
*steps down off the soapbox*

*Funny to stand around afterward and quote movies with some friends.
I tend to think we're the only ones that do this to a seemingly abnormal fault.
I guess not. *wink*

*Now we're home and I'm going over Christmas music at 11:30pm... which is actually 10:30pm... because fall BACK is way better than spring FORWARD.

*Which reminds me that fifteen years ago on daylight savings time I gave birth to Taylor. He was born on the first 1:14am... and then it hit 2:00am and rolled back to 1:00am... and 1:14am came around again... so Taylor lived his birth time twice.

*File THAT under odd things you didn't need to know but find kind of interesting and humorous anyway.
(Because we all have a file in our brains that is named such.)

*And now, because it's my blog and I can do things like this, I present you with my adorable daughter and the gold medal she was presented with today because of her outstanding beam routine.
