Post-Mother's Day

For Mother's day, it rained all day.



I already had gotten a wonderful gift from Ashley---participating in the Relay for Life walk-a-thon...and that was more than enough. Joshua had created a bookmark for me, with a poem. That was sweet.



The rain really rained all day. I was able to make my favorite dinner in the crockpot...cooking the beef chunks (usually for beef stew) and making it almost like roast beef with mashed potatos. That was really yummy.



Our Deaf Cafe program ended really well. To me, it seem like the clock was moving very slowly...but no complaints. Everyone on the team did a wonderful job, and I was kind of sad to see it come to a close but it was time for us to take a break.



We did the songs, Days of Elijah and Send it on Down. Really upbeat songs. I thought Days of Elijah was really the most workout I've done. *smile*



Skits on "Pay it Forward" or "Gift of Love" or the drama about the Rich Man and the Poor Widow... who gave the most?



For Gift of Love, we showed a video clip and then proceeded to cut 11 inches of my ponytail off! Yes, I know what you all are thinking...really? No! But yes, I was willing to give up my hair to make an impact of what I can do with that hair. I didn't need all of it. So I am donating it to Locks of Love.



My hair is pretty short...but I am happy with how it turned out. Of course I will go to a professional and get it fixed a little bit. But my fellow team member who cut my ponytail off did a very good job...and she was a nervous wreck!



I end this with the video clip---this is in memory of my daughter, Rachel, and to my mom, "Oma".
