One of My Top Ten Best Days Ever

Yesterday is one of my top ten best days ever in my life.  The other nine are things like being saved, getting married, the birth of my three kids.  You know, big, life-altering things.  Yesterday was just pure joy -- mixed with a little nervousness after the reality set in.  Yesterday I got my "official" email inviting me to a writers' conference at LifeWay so that I CAN WRITE SOME CURRICULUM FOR THEM.  Yeah, you know, the store LifeWay.  They publish curriculum for small group Bible study/Sunday School.  And me, I, Jeanette, will be a writer for LifeWay.  I will be published.  My writing will be read by thousands of people. 

I got the news, unfortunately, at the grocery store.  One of my most dreaded places to be.  I got my fancy new little smart phone out to make sure my youngest didn't call for me to pick him up.  I thought he was staying after school for basketball practice and I don't hear my new cell when it rings and I didn't want to miss his call in case his plans changed.  I noticed I had an email from the editor at LifeWay so I checked it.  It was the email I have been waiting for.  I called Johnny but it is impossible to shop with one hand and talk on the phone with the other.  Even after I got home it was hectic because I had to go pick up Jacob then get right to cooking dinner and all the other chore things I had to do last night.  So, I hardly got to enjoy the moment or bask in the excitement.  There will be time for that today, I suppose.  I think I'll go have a pedicure to celebrate.  And, Johnny will take me to a yummy restaurant for lunch tomorrow. 

Did I mention that I am going to be a writer for LifeWay? hahahahaha, I so happy!

Serving the King,

Jeanette

I am so happy for you! I could tell by your blog how happy you were, but yet you couldn't jump up and down and scream because you were in the grocery store of all places. Congrats! I know you will be great at it.
