A Weekend to Remember...

What a weekend!!! It was really fun to get away and just have girly girl time with so many of the sweet ladies from EMC. I enjoyed getting to know all the nitty gritty stuff about you guys. Some of you I thought I knew pretty well (the Haired's-you know who you are!!!). Others I got to know for the first time. It was so good to laugh, cry and just have lots of fun with you. It was no problem....you thought I was gonna say it, didn't you? The stories were too funny and endless.

I especially enjoyed my van mates. We loved the roller coaster ride to get there. Bubba Gump's was quite the experience for lunch on the last day even if we did have to walk through a monsoon to get back to the van. I also enjoyed the sidetrip through NC...oops. I got to know more about each of you personally and spiritually during that little detour towards home. We made it and we didn't have to stand on the side of the road and flag down traffic to bring us gas...believe it or not.

I can't wait until our next excursion. I can't wait to see what God is going to do for EMC AND I can't wait to see what each of you are going to do with God. You all are a great group of women.

Terri,

I, for one, was SO excited that you were there this weekend!! You made it complete! It was wonderful to spend time with you as well as the other 17 ladies who were there! You are a blast and the stories and the fun WERE endless!! What a weekend! I don't know if I can wait a WHOLE YEAR for another! I, too, look forward to what the year has in store for our families and our church!

Terri, I love you girl and I was so proud to have you on our trip! No problem.... :)

Love you,

Cyndi (So "NOT" a "Hired", according to Tamara- I can't even say it right!!!) LOL!!!
