Weekend Update.....

Yesterday I headed to Mr. M's wife's funeral. It was a really nice service, VERY long, which I'm not used to, the pastor gave a full cermon, but listening to it I knew, from what I know about Mr. Middlebrook it was something he needed the most, and we all needed to hear. I've never seen so many people at a funeral, it completely filled a very large church, I can't estimate how many hundreds of people were there, I'd say well over 400. We waited in line for about an hour, but we finally had to leave b/c subs were holding down the fort in our classrooms. Several of us are going by Monday with dinner, so I'll chat with him then. They are both pretty amazing people, his wife started a women's crisis center in the area years before they were even a common word to hear. It's good to know great people.....it gives me a goal and a hero.
Friday afternoon I met a friend of mine for coffee, Angie, who used to work with me. She's working and trying to start a floral business on the side, it looks like she has two weddings lined up for October that I may go help her create bouquets for. I enjoy being around flowers, so I'm always excited when she has a wedding :O).
Tonight I'm headed out to a concert by this local Women's singing group, one of my Mom's friends that I know well is in it and we have been saying we will attend a concert sometime, and tomorrow is church in the morning and lunch out with Mary and Sonia. Life is busy, life is good....
