It’s a girls day out!! We had plans for the weekend that were unexpectedly changed. Ritch went over to Ohio to a wild game dinner, but Sarah and I stayed home.
Since Ritch was going to be gone all day, I decided that we would just spend the day together. We started our day out at the Michiana’s Women’s Expo michianawomensshow.com at the South Bend Century Center centurycenter.org. We had a great time walking around looking at all the different booths. We even got our picture taken with a couple of the news personalities from WSBT-TV www.wsbt.com. That was kinda cool. This expo was geared towards women’s health. One of the local hospitals was doing blood pressure checks and blood sugar tests. There were booths to enjoy from local vendors as well. As I was walking around, I was wishing I had known about this expo because I would have liked to have had a doTERRA Essentials Oils booth as well www.mydoterra.com/myessentiallife. I decided that I am going to try and have a booth there next year. Sarah was very excited about that and wanted to know if she could help out.
After leaving the expo, Sarah and I stopped by Macri’s bakery macrisbakery.com and bought a couple of treats. This was a special treat because we don’t get over to that part of town very often. We also bought a treat for my mom and aunt because we wanted to share with them.
We left Macri’s and decided it was time for lunch. We went to Hacienda Mexican Restaurant www.haciendafiesta.com for lunch and I had a great time just listening to Sarah and laughing with her. It was a really relaxed time and we weren’t in any hurry because Ritch was gone for the day so I could just sit and listen to all that she had to say and share. I loved listening to her and watching her be so animated about all that she was talking about.
After lunch, we did a little bit of shopping. All we bought, was a pair of jeans that we got on sale for Sarah. We looked around the store, but didn’t see anything else that we needed. I love when Sarah is looking for clothes, she is concerned about whether they are going to be modest enough or not. I have to admit, it blesses my heart to hear her talk about wanting to make sure that the clothes she wears are modest.
We then went to my mom’s house because she had a few things that she needed to be done at her house. We are so blessed to still have my mom and aunt living so close to us. Sarah enjoys being at their house and taking care of them. She never complains about having to do things for them. When we got to my mom’s, Sarah asked what grandmom needed and off she went to make sure she took care of those chores right away. The Lord has blessed her with a servant’s heart and I am so thankful for her willingness to be helpful.
I was sad that our plans were changed, but I am so thankful for our girls day out!! I had been praying about spending time with Sarah and the Lord had really been laying on my heart about spending quality time with Sarah and really being present and listening to what she has to share. The Lord answered my prayers by giving us this day together. I had a great day today. We weren’t in any hurry and we slowed down and just enjoyed each other. Tonight, my heart is so full with all the blessings from today. Thank you Jesus for giving me this very special day with Sarah!
We are definitely going to have to plan another girls day out soon!!
