Friday Coffee with the girls

Well today is Coffee for all the Company Girls. Everyone gets together and visits each other and we all share about our week.
If your not a Company Girl you need to be. Rachel over at Home Sanctuary has brought together all us through her wonderful blog and the Simple Things she suggests everyday to help us all make our homes a Sanctuary.

My week was filled with many things. My brain was filled with information. My heart and soul was filled with anxiety and emotion and peace.

Here's a quick recap.

Oh Monday I joined Sandra for Homemaker Monday and I met some new friends. I loved this and will keep doing it. My post is over at my other blog. Oh and I have some books to give away there too. Go here to enter my drawing.

On Monday Christ's Haven a childrens home near us came and took our 22 year old Paint horse. It was bitter sweet. We have had him since he was a 3 year old. But we are please that he will make a lot of little kids happy. We went to see him on Wednesday. He was happily munching hay. We took him apples and enjoyed that. We left a big bag to share with his friends.

It was easy and difficult to let him go. I know it is for the best. But when I look outside and he isn't there it hurts. Mainly because he is our last horse. This is the end of a 20 year chapter in our life. It's hard.

On the bright side we had lots of ministry going on this week. Meetings, dinners, luncheons. The girls at the halfway house where we volunteer are all beginning to really show that they like us coming. This changes as girls come and go. Some groups take weeks to be openly accepting of us and what we are trying to share with them. Yesterday 3/4 of them approached me first and offered hugs. Praise God.

I have been worried for over a month about one of the girls that I mentor. I have known her for 3 years. She lives about 4 hours away. I haven't talked to her in over a month because I don't have a cell anymore. And all she does is text mostly. Kids! I talked to her stepmom last night and found out some things. Basically confirmed my suspicions. Not good. Can ya'll pray for a girl named McKenzie. I have spoken to a lady here that has a transitional housing program and I hope I can get her to move here.

Don't you just hate it when you run out of dish soap. That happens to me way too often! I have spent the morning washing 2 days worth of dishs. Ugh. But the kitchen is shinny and clean again so now I can go and visit and have some coffee!

Oh before I go I did begin a routine of mopping my kitchen floor everyday. My floor is so clean now.

Thanks Rachel Anne for all your inspiration.

Oh I almost forgot my favorite simple thing this week was the laundry day. Did ya'll do that. I mean cha ching cha ching. I did 2 loads one day and 3 the next I still have two loads today. But don't worry I don't turn in my points so I won't be getting that great prize.

Off to coffee.

Mopping EVERY day??!! Wow! That's something to aspire to. I won't tell you how often I mop....*sheepish*

Your horse are making the kids happy I'm sure. That's something to be glad about, but 20 years, I'm sure it was hard to let go. Said a prayer for MacKenzie. I'm glad you are in her life to watch over her.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. What a lovely, lovely blog design you have and I so enjoyed your entry today. I certainly understand the loss you feel over your horse. Our daughter and her family have 5 horses and they are like members of the family. Blessings to you as you work with these young ladies. Happy Spring!

I know you will miss that horse, but what a blessing he will be to those children!

I said a prayer for the young lady you spoke of. I hope things work out!

Have a great weekend!

Love your blog design...very pretty.

Chapters in life are sometimes bittersweet. I'm glad to hear he's doing well in his new home.

I've just joined Rachel's Company Girls and am looking forward to seeing what I can get accomplished in April!

Happy Easter!
