I need this...
I have been looking forward to this weekend for a really, REALLY long time. For almost a year, I think. As soon as it's over I just start anticipating next year. I cannot wait to spend the next few days surrounded by women who have the same desires as me. The same beliefs. The same dreams.
There is POWER in this room. You can feel it! I always leave feeling optimistic about the future. Feeling hopeful that each one of these women will go home and love their children stronger, show more compassion to their neighbors, reach out to those in need. And it just feels good. Really, really good!
I'm looking forward to not having to worry about a backyard full of construction workers, dust flying everywhere, the constant sound of saws, early morning meetings with landscape guys, homework, carpools, soccer games, birthday parties, dance performances, etc. I'm looking forward to eating yummy food, listening to uplifting speakers, strengthening my testimony, spending time with my sisters, giggling with Amanda, shopping, getting a pedicure, "refilling my tank", which feels so empty these days.
Yay for Womens Conference!
PS If you see me there, come say hi! It always makes my day....like the lady I met in Dillards last week :)
