After a couple of weeks of feeling drained and moody and questioning God, my heart as been filled up.
I was supposed to go out of town for the weekend with my mom to see my aunt. Right before I left, I found an amazing gift on my doorstep.
My good friend, Dinah, had put together a book filled with verses and messages from friends and family encouraging me and offering kind words. This was for my 30th birthday (even though my birthday was in February).
Personally, I think the book came at the perfect time.
It's not every day that you get such a wonderful gift of encouragement. That alone would have filled up my soul after feeling depleted.
But then I got to spend the weekend with my mom and aunt Karin in Kansas. We had amazing conversation, good wine and casino time:)
My aunt Karin is awesome and has been one of my biggest support systems and cheerleaders in life. It was so fun seeing her.
Here are some of the trip pictures.
Then today my dad came up for treatment (he has cancer treatment a few times a year in Omaha) and I got to spend some fun times eating out and laughing with my parents.
It has been a wonderful week and I am feeling refreshed.
