I read a book for like 3 hours on the plane - heaven! (The book was Whistling in the Dark - very good so far - wow, childhood is a crazy, tough thing for so many people...) But sitting in a middle seat between two very large people on a fully packed plane wasn't my favorite thing - especially when our already-long flight was made longer by a one hour sitting-in-the-stuffy-plane-at-the-gate delay. At least I wasn't trying to keep a baby happy on my lap all that time. There are many things I'll always miss about my babies - but taking them on planes isn't something I miss.
Anyway, I announced the Retreat Giveaway winners in my last post - and sure wished I could get everyone who commented to these Retreats! There's one comment that especially stood out to me and even though this particular commenter didn't win the giveaway, I wanted to reach out to her and invite her to come to the Chicago Retreat for free. But she didn't leave her email address. Here's the comment I'm talking about:
Only a few short weeks ago we lost our baby boy, Bowen (stillbirth). He would have been #5. While looking for a little encouragement today, I stumbled across your the Power of Moms website. I read about the Chicago retreat and called a friend who I thought would love to attend with me and she said yes. I just love when God unfolds certain things right before our eyes.
