A Field OF Angels

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 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.
