As the year has drawn to a close, many of us have had to face the ‘beautiful mess’ of our difficult circumstances and now we have new challenges to brave this summer.     Our last meeting before summer break was filled with laughter and tears.    We were truly a beautiful mess together as we celebrated the year we have spent together, the good and the bad, and had to face one of our final goodbyes to a dear mom in our group.

Amanda gave the devotional, which was moving and brought more tears to our eyes as she touched our hearts with her words.   We celebrated those who served on the Leadership Team this year and brought our Beautiful Mess theme to life in our meetings.    Thank you so much for all of your hard work throughout the year!   You have blessed us all with your service.

Prizes were randomly given away throughout the meeting and we shared ideas on how to travel with kids.  Some of the ideas shared were to keep the kids busy with 2014-06-06 10.29.43games, electronics, and stops to interesting and entertaining places.   After sharing, we ate pizza, salad, and cake!  Yes, that’s right, for breakfast!! 🙂  Everyone was given a break from making the food and we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal together.

All too soon, we drew our meeting to an end in circle time prayer with prayers and praises and even more tears and laughter!  Thank you God for every woman in our group.  We are truly blessed to have such a group of women to share motherhood with!  Please bless each and every darling mother as they bravely face this new summer ahead!
