Day 744: De-Stress

So, I'm in charge of the activities for the women in my church congregation.  Fortunately, we only hold them every other month.  But tonight was the first one I was in charge of.  And the main problem was that the activity itself was not my idea, so there were many things that I was either unfamiliar with, or had no control over.

But, it happened anyway.

And it seemed to be a success.

The basic summary of it is that we cooked a bunch of ground beef and prepared a bunch of chicken that I and one other lady had cooked earlier.  Then we packaged them all up for the women to take home and freeze to help get a jump start on future dinners calling for ground beef or diced chicken.  And we made a bunch of this flour mix to make dinner rolls and such.


Everyone seemed happy with the food mixes and they all were quite chatty and cheerful while doing the work.

And everyone was SO helpful.  Most even stayed until the cleanup was complete.  I can't say how much I appreciated this!

Driving home and having it all over was probably today's Joyful Moment.  I had spent a lot of time in the weeks leading up to it and almost all of today in preparation (and stress!), so I'm just so happy to have it over with and to be pleased with how it went.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and a relaxing day tomorrow!

What a good feeling! I was wondering why you were under so much stress. Now I totally understand. CONGRATULATIONS on enjoying that big task.
