I am Giddy With Excitement

It doesn't happen often, but I am BESIDE myself! Why, you may ask.

Yesterday morning one of my good friends called with some amazing news. She had won tickets to the Extraordinary Women conference in Tupelo, MS. THIS WEEKEND! Guess who she invited? Little ole me! I just about fell out of my chair, cause ladies...I LOVE the Extraordinary Women's conferences. This one features Angela Thomas (love her), Chonda Pierce (love her), Stormie Omartian (love her) AND Karen Kingsbury (love her)! AND Charles Billingsley AND Mandisa will be there. Do I hear an AMEN????

There are just really no words to describe how incredible this is! There is no way I could have gone to this conference. I mean, you may not know this...but we are in the middle of a sunk economy, and we just do not have a penny to spend on anything other than groceries, bills, and plumbing!

My friend is giving me a ticket AND she got a discounted hotel (at the last minute) for only $65. So, for a little over $30 plus meals ( which is almost exactly how much cash I have left over from Birthday money), I get 24 hours of child free time, I get to be fed by some amazing women (and Charles Billingsley) and I get to hang out with a friend.

My God is good...and I am giddy!

How exciting! I'm giddy with you! No kids, a long ride with a girl friend, and two days praising God along with another couple of thousand women. You are going to have a great time!
