Love to all my girls!

Happy National Women's Friendship Day to you! I am so blessed to have sweet women friends who inspire me, laugh with me, challenge me and encourage me. So I want to thank all of you for being my friend and loving me! As we say in the south, "Thank Y'all!" I love you all, near and far. Both of my sisters are my best friends and I don't get to see them much, so Leah and Beth, here's a long distance hug and kiss from me!

I had been wanting to do a layout about my MOPS group because I love it so much, so in honor of the holiday, and with inspiration from my scrapbooking class Red Letter Days, I did this layout on my MOPS group. It was inspired by page 123 of Elizabeth Dillow's book, The Scrapbooker's Almanac, which talks about National Women's Friendship Day. MOPS has been such a blessing to my life. When they asked me to join last year, I wasn't sure if I would like it. So I said I would join, but I asked if I could get a refund on my money if I didn't. They said sure, knowing that wouldn't happen, and it didn't. I love my MOPS group so much. It has been a blessing sent from God to encourage me and love on me. I have made many friends from it, and now I am the Co-Creative Activities Director with my sweet friend Nancy. It's amazing!

All my girls out there, I love you! Have a happy day!

P.S. - Jennifer, there's a new layout on the slide show! I knew you would want to know! (:

what a sweet post. i feel the same way about MOPS and hate that it wasn't until Feb. that I learned about it. i'm so grateful for the friendships that it has given me.

i have to agree with you about MOPS (even though i've only been to one meeting!) ....I actually got in my car and cried. tears of joy because it was so nice to be there. i didn't appreciate my first "stay at home experience"...but I sure do now. anyways, LOVE your new favorite is the one about Mallory's eyes.

Well, now. Could I read this post without commenting...I don't think so! Every time I hear how MOPS has changed and blessed the life of a woman, I sigh in relief knowing that it was all worth it. Thank you for giving MOPS a try and then ultimatley giving back to the group that encouraged you and loved you as a mother. Here's to many, many more MOPS years and even more friendships forged through this group that was indeed, been sent from Above.
