Right now I’m at gate E15 at DFW Airport and my mind is fried. Between going on a wonderful trip with my family and in-laws to Disney and the annual ACFW Conference, I’m beat. Twelve days and six plane trips later, instead of any deep, thought-provoking posts (do I even do those?) I’m going to simply share some of the highlights of my last two weeks with y’all. J
Seeing my boys’ faces as they took off on their first airplane trip!
Waiting in line for an hour with my family in anticipation of the ride, SOARING, at Epcot. My little Noah was so scared, but it ended up being his favorite ride. What kid wouldn’t want to feel like they’re flying? I think it was my favorite ride too.
Seeing some of my wonderful extended family in Florida.
Seeing ACFWers I’ve only met online—and meeting brand new friends!
Having an editor tell me I had skill and could write (always encouraging to hear!).
Going to the My Book Therapy Wild West Pizza Party! Congrats on the Frasier, Ginger!
Allowing my roommate to perform a complimentary haircut on said hair after it was sucked into scary, hair-eating hairdryer.
Listening to the stories Brandilyn Collins tells on behalf of the attendees. That lady is just a great storyteller.
Learning how to talk southern. A new friend told me the technicalities of Georgia language. Y’all is actually singular—what do y’all know? All y’all is plural. (As I write this portion of my post I’m in Atlanta airport, and this is true! One woman just asked me—I was alone—“Where y’all goin’?”
There you have it. There were ups, there were downs, but in the end, I’m choosing to be inspired.
What were some highlights from your week? Did anything inspire you?
