Off for the weekend!

Well, I think this is the longest weekend ever that I'll be the one away from my husband and kids. If I've ever been away from the kids for a stretch, it's been with him. Three nights without any of them? Wow, it feels like it's gonna be a long time. I already miss them.

But I'm off to Newport to stay with some bloggy friends prior to Blog Sugar. Fellowship, great meals and the event itself are the things I'm looking forward to the most. And maybe sleeping in. Yeah, that would be nice too.

My kids asked me today if I'd leave them kisses.

Last time we left for the weekend, I punched out circles of paper and labeled them as my goodnight kisses for each night I was gone. I'm so glad they reminded me to do it again!!

So there you have it. Goodnight kisses, and a weekend alone, but not.

I'm gonna let God shower me with the blessings of friendship this weekend. He is a good God, and I'm thankful to be a part of His family. Now off to meet some of my sisters, face to face...
