The Letter C is for cheering! I ran 3.48 (let’s just call it a half, shouldn’t we?) miles this morning and made it door-to-door in 40 minutes. C is for celebrating and couldn’t-care-less-ing (yes, that’s a real phrase) of showing you this picture. I did it!
On my run I thought about other words that begin with C that tell a little something about myself.
C is for Chris Tomlin, my favorite running partner. I know a lot of the lyrics to his uptempo tunes and they definitely keep me in a happy place. It was a great time of worship for me. I prayed about being thankful for time alone outside, having a break from the kids, and seeing His creation all around me. The birds were singing this morning, I loved it.
C is for Candy. Okay, that was a sudden change of subject, but I enjoy how this alphabet meme allows that. Mike and I are organizing an appreciation dinner for 80 people at church tomorrow night and the decorating theme I decided on was candy and sweets. How fun is that? Candy is a colorful and cheap way to decorate tables (and, yes, I’ve missed it in my life). I ordered cupcakes for dessert and will also use them as the centerpieces for the table. I made cupcake pedestals with funky colorful cups from Target and thought they turned out really cute.
Candy will be sprinkled around the tables and each place setting will have a goody bag for people to fill, if they want. I ordered these cute stickers from etsy, too.
We want it to be a great night, but definitely wanted to spend most of our budget on having a nice meal, not necessarily the most elaborate decorations. But I think people will enjoy the theme and I know they’ll love being together most of all. It’s great to have a chance to show how much we appreciate the volunteers in our student ministries. We are so blessed!
