Next week I hit my 700th blog post! As a superstitious person, I’m very glad to be almost out of the 600′s. Blog #666 was especially painful, if it would have let me skipped it I would have. I think most people assign luck and power to specific numbers as well, especially after watching our silent auction last night. People didn’t want to go in numerical order for their bid numbers, instead they randomly picked their own with the ones we had available. It made me feel better to know that I’m not the only weirdo out there with magical thoughts.
The party went extremely well… couldn’t have been any better! We raised a lot of money for the Cahaba River Society, and had a blast doing it. It only rained once during the party for a short amount of time after the majority of the crowd had already arrived. The music was great, the food was delicious, and our guests came with big smiles on their faces ready to have a good time. It was the biggest fundraiser to date, so that is something to be very proud of. Today, I get to clean & do post party wrap-up. Then later on I head off to Columbus, Georgia to spend time with my family!!
Today I am grateful for so many things – for the people I have around me, the opportunities I’ve been given, and a brand new day in front of me. There is nothing more rewarding than accomplishing a big task…it makes you feel like you can do almost anything. And that’s the way I’m feeling right at this very moment!
