This weekend is bittersweet for me. I am so excited that this weekend is A Field of Angels first game. I am so dissapointed that I will be in Little Rock at continuing education. A Field of Angels is a baseball league for children with special needs. I heard Mark Brashears talk about his dream for the team at a PAA meeting. You know me, I felt compelled to help him. Now I am his right hand (wo)man. Not only is this great for the players, but for the volunteers that help. Check out our blog http://afieldofangels.blogspot.com. Our game schedule is posted on the blog. If you are in the area, please check out a game. I highly recommend it.

Today has been the most wonderful day. My braces are finally off. I heard from many friends that I have not been in contact with for awhile either by text, phone, or email.
The weather was absolutely beautiful today. (It's hard to believe it was snowing last weekend). I didn't get to run due to my two orthodontist appointments, but that is a trade I am willing to make.
Today in my backyard, there is a lone tulip. The first of many to bloom. I have had other flowers in full bloom this spring, but this is my first tulip. I started thinking how pretty it was. Or maybe it was just that I took the time to NOTICE how pretty it was. It seems sometimes, that between work, ball games, volunteering, and with all the stressfull things that have been going on, I don't take the time to appreciate or notice the really beautiful things that I am surrounded by.
Don't get me wrong, I love all the things I am involved with. Just today I feel like God gave me the most wonderful day, and then he made it perfect by sending me a flower.
