Monday: I headed home to Kankakee to help celebrate my dad's birthday. He is now 61 years young. :-) During the day, I met with my close friend Tiffany. We went to the State Park and walked a little bit. It was beautiful and serene. Tiffany actually was the catalyst that brought me to Christ oh so many years ago. We have both moved around a lot and are enjoying living closer right now. She is such an encourager and a great person to "process" with. Her husband Jon, is taking his first set of boards this Thursday, so after we met, we went back so that we could pray over him. It was good.
That evening my family went to Blue's Cafe to celebrate my dad. Holy Cow is that the greatest food ever. That place has been my favorite restaurant since my 11th birthday when I first ordered chicken fillet (the beginning of a lifelong love affair.) Afterwards, we watched the Illusionist...a really interesting and great movie.
Happy Birthday Dad!!
Tuesday: I drove back this morning, had a fun chat with Sara, took a nap, and am now getting ready to get back into the swing of things by going grocery shopping and cleaning. Go me.
