When Sir Streusel returns home each week, this little girl, Stella, is ready to see her Daddy. They have this ritual on his first night back home where they get eye to eye and play non stop for about 30 minutes. Stella is quick, really quick, and she can jump around the bed like a cat. I am worn out just watching them each week.
This past week my Sunday School class had its monthly Ladies Night Out. It turned out to be the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Ladies Night Out.” We decided that we would go downtown and eat outside with a view of our beautiful water. As some of us arrived, and I am holding a container of delicious Chocolate Shortbread Bars to share, we were told it would be an hour and a half before they could seat us. No problem, we will just take the party somewhere else. We started frantically texting the ladies that we knew were coming to tell them we were changing restaurants. We arrived at restaurant number two, I am still carrying my container of Chocolate Shortbread Bars, and we are told yet again, one hour to one and a half hour wait. We find out that James Taylor is in concert and that is why all the downtown restaurants are packed. Now, I love my Ladies of the FOLD, but I would have ditched them in a second to hear JT sing “Sweet Baby James.” So we pull out our phones and text away telling the ladies we are moving to yet another restaurant. We pull up to the third restaurant, which by the way is five minutes from my home so I have come full circle, walk in and have a great meal with wonderful fellowship. This….this is what made it all worthwhile….
