What a Week!

I’ve been working hard this week to get ready for “Amish Wisdom’s” debut tomorrow! I’m really looking forward to my conversation with Erik Wesner, Amish researcher, author of Success Made Simple: an Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive and the Amish America blog.

We’re going to be talking about all things Amish.

Aside from my radio program kicking off tomorrow, I’m going to be speaking tomorrow evening at a local church for a very special women’s event. (Sorry, guys. Stay home and watch March Madness.) Topic is: “Slowing Down in a Speeded-Up World.” They’re even serving whoopie pies!

I’ve worked long and hard on the talk tomorrow…just realized I haven’t even thought about what to wear! Even worse…I’m not sure I have the right thing to wear! I only have one exude-confidence-even-when-I-don’t-feel-it outfit…and I’ve worn this one outfit before to this very church. Oh dear, dear, dear.

Last big news about this week…my son plays high school varsity basketball. His team is advancing into the second round of the Northern California Tournament! He plays tomorrow eve…I’ll have to miss it because of this event, but I am trusting God that I’m where I need to be tomorrow. This women’s event was set up months and months ago…we never dreamed my son’s team would have progressed this far in the championships.

Still…I feel more than a little torn. I’m a mom before I’m a writer, and this may be my youngest son’s last game.

So join me in praying that my son’s team will win, so they’ll play again this weekend!
