Since my hand started feeling better and I have a moment to sit down, I thought it would be a good time to catch up with you all. Not that it is 100% better, but at least I can use it. I am still seeking medical help for it. In fact, yesterday, I had a nerve conduction study and EMG. The nerve conduction wasn’t too bad but the EMG…well, let’s just say, I didn’t enjoy it at all!
This is the year of special birthdays for the men in my family. My oldest son turned 16 in January, my youngest turned 13 in February, and this month, my husband will be 40. Lots of celebrations for these awesome guys!
Although I no longer have little ones at home, I have been serving on the steering committee for the new Tipton County MOPS chapter. We just started in January and are growing! We’ve had new moms attend each meeting, which is encouraging. My daughter is helping in the Moppets, the class for the preschoolers, and she loves it. We will have a booth at the Atoka BBQ Fest on April 6th to pass out info and sell baked goods to help raise funds for our chapter. Please be sure to stop by and say hello!
My husband and I are taking PATH Classes at Youth Villages to prepare to foster/adopt and that requires a couple of nights a week away from home. This is hard physically, because we are tired from being on the go all day already, emotionally because of some of the issues we hear about that these children go through, and mentally because of the massive amount of paperwork we have to fill out. The ultimate goal is to help a child and so we know that in the end, it will all be worth it.
I was blessed to serve on the Memphis Women’s Discipleship Walk last weekend. Those are always fun! I always leave the campground tired but in a good way. To see the changes that take place in all of the women’s lives in those 3 short days is just amazing. If you have never experience this life changing weekend, I highly recommend you do so. The dates for the next walk will be posted as soon as they are set.
My term as president of Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County is coming to an end which means I have lots of paperwork and reports to prepare for National Association of Junior Auxiliaries and things to do to get my chapter transitioned and ready for next year. Emotionally, I am excited for change but will miss being actively involved in this great organization which I have given 6 years of my life to. The last big event that I get to be a part of as an active member is the JA5K & Kids Fun Run which is going to be on April 6th.

The Tipton County Relay for Life is quickly approaching and that means that the other committee members and I are in hyper-drive to get everything finalized for the big event…PLUS we have added something new this year that we are super excited about. We are having a Paint The Town Purple Parade in Covington on May 4th!!

I guess that is all for now… I am sure there is more but I need to get ready for our family night. Since life has been crazy busy lately and we had nothing on the calendar tonight, we have set this night aside to just be together. These are the moments I love the best. Have a great weekend y’all!
