This week past falls into one of the more special in my lifetime.
I celebrated my 43rd birthday and asked everyone able for a gift: a donation to HomePlate. My $430 goal surpassed, HomePlate now has $600 more in their resources account. The generosity of my friends and family became so humbly apparent this week.

If you’d still like to give, all donations are much appreciated. Follow this link for the charity webpage.

We celebrated our youngest’s 11th birthday over the weekend. A fairy theme, my oldest served as chief decorator and party planner to a small house full of girls.

This week, I am taking time to stop. Time for an extended Sabbath, if you will. Time to be still and know that He is God.
Edd and I are spending a few days at our favorite Bed & Breakfast; a place that caters to guests who love to read. Rooms have no TVs and WiFi is not available.
I won’t bring my laptop. I will bring my plush, comfy blanket to surround me while I spread out by the fireplace with one of the 10 titles I’m bringing.

It could happen!
I’m giving the blog a week long sabbath as well. Though I won’t be posting here, you can bet I’ll be on Instagram often.
Do you take a weekly Sabbath? (It is a commandment, you know. Even listed before “Thou shalt not kill.”) How do you take a “time out?”
Talk to you next week!
