Our Full Weekend

by | Mar 2, 2010 | This Lefe Family

We had a wonderful and full weekend! I’m thankful that God has allowed me to have the full life I do.  I was honestly feeling overwhelmed last week with all that transpired, but after an attitude-adjusting weekend, some friends’ encouraging words, and after our BSF meeting this morning, I’m grateful and thankful instead of feeling overwhelmed. 

Friday was a fun day/night away with my friends Carolyn and Jeanie.  We enjoyed our lunch at the Rose Cottage Tea Room, did a little shopping, had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel and enjoyed spending time together unwinding and reconnecting with each other. 🙂 It was exactly what I needed!

Saturday morning I got up early, and drove 2-1/2 hours to Ali’s show choir competition.  It was fun connecting with another mom there…both Ali and her daughter are on the same volleyball team and are in show choir together.  It was nice to get to know this mom better…we hung out most of the day together.  Zach rode up with another family to meet up with me there. 
Ali’s show choir group did a wonderful job!  They won 1st in their division!  I heard a few people say their performance was their favorite all day.  Ali did great too!
Saturday night we drove 1-1/2 hours in the other direction to spend the night closer to Ali’s volleyball tournament which was yesterday.  They took first place in their pool, and played so incredible all the way to the end…the won the tourmament!  They were so excited and I was so proud!  Ali played so awesome the whole day! 

We pulled into the garage at 8:30 last night.  Whew!  What a full weekend! 🙂 Another blessing that happened yesterday was that Bill surprised us and came to Ali’s games in the morning.  He had to work all weekend, so he wasn’t able to spend the rest of the weekend with us, but it was such a nice surprise to have him show up announced! 🙂 

I’m thankful tonight for the many blessings we experienced over the weekend, after such a trying and stressful week.  I consider our weekend a gift!
