Highlights of a week in January

This is my new art book journal that my friend Lindy made me and gave me on Tuesday.
Don't you just love it? I have a new place to record all my joy findings.
It has a quote on the inside cover from Psalm 73:24 "You guide me with your counsel leading me to a glorious destiny."

On Wednesday, I received an invitation to speak at luncheon at the Quail Creek Golf & Country Club sponsored by the North OKC Christian Women's Connection. They had centerpieces on each table decorated with Teapots and teacups. So cute!

They also wanted me to display some of the gift items from our gift boutique
and gazebo which is full of interesting porcelain, antiques, tea-time acceories, children's books and tea sets.

One of the ladies Annette dressed up and there was also another special speaker
Jackie Van Eaton and a soloist, Jessica.

Two ladies in lace.

On Thursday we hosted a retirement party for two ladies
from the Universal Insurance Company.

They were a delightful group and we enjoyed getting to host this event at A Spot For Tea.

The two ladies that retired were Frances and Shirley.

On Friday night Brock had a birthday dinner at Outback Steakhouse.
Here is the birthday boy with his good buddy Braxton.

And here he is about to blow out his seven candles.

Queen's Tea with Amanda and her mom.

Ladies in hats...sipping tea and celebrating special occasions.

Small ladies also doning hats.

God has really been teaching me about noticing the wonderful in the everyday.
Lindy put another quote in my book "All animals, except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it."- Samuel Butler
One of my New Year's Resolutions is to enjoy life more.
