My Friend's Table


I thought I would brag on one of my friends today. Every spring, sometime around Easter, she hosts a tea party for her daughter and her little friends. She started this when her daughter was quite young and invites about six little girls over for tea. The little girls dress up in their Easter dresses (and sometimes Easter hats) and come over to Connie's for this little celebration. I'm sure my friend enjoys this party way more than the little girls do, but I've always admired her talent and creativity to put on this little event every year. This is a picture of her table from a couple years ago. The funny thing is that her "little" daughter is growing into a young teenager now and isn't too excited about this frilly stuff any longer. So what did God do for my friend? He surprised her last year, at age 45, with a new little girl to love!!! Now, my friend can have tea parties for years to come!

Oh my! Surprise, surprise! I sure am glad God knows what He's doing - He surprised my eldest daughter with a little girl when her fist was in HS and the second was in Jr. High! But little Emily is the apple of all of our eyes now! Good for your friend-
