I have finally decided to join Jen in 7 Quick Takes. I have no idea of how to do this, but I had no idea of what I was doing when I started blogging almost ten years ago. I just jumped right in. I enjoy doing new things, even if they are a little scary. "Be not afraid"! I can hear John Paul II's powerful voice every time I begin something new and am afraid of making a mistake. I felt the same way when I began work on my second Master's degree (in theology) a couple of years ago and things worked out well, because I applied myself and God helped me through the program. I graduated in December 2012. It was His will, so things worked out as I hoped they would.
This had been an interesting week. We celebrated our 21st anniversary on Thursday, June 27th by going out to eat. Naturally, I wanted to look nice for my dear husband, so I went to the salon (which has no windows) to get my hair done. Someone mentioned that it was raining outdoors and when I went to the front of the salon, I noticed that it was pouring down and the wind was howling. I jokingly mentioned to my stylist, "You can apply the hurricane spray!" It turns out that we had a terrible storm here, with 89mph winds. Tree limbs were covering the roads and power was out in several places. We arrived home safely after we ate at the nearby restaurant. What an unforgettable anniversary!
