Best part of your weekend?

What are you looking forward to this week?

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Last Saturday night, my daughter and I brought dinner to our church (soon to be former church, as we have moved and it's too far to drive) to serve the 3 homeless families living there. They are part of a program that provides counseling, job help and other social services to help them get back on their feet, but they live in area churches until they can find suitable housing. We hit it off with a lady from Haiti and her two kids, and my daughter ended up giving a piano concert in the sanctuary for the families and volunteers. (I stayed behind and cleaned up the kitchen, along with another volunteer.)

I became a science writer, and then a director of Christian education, and then a SAHM. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life!</p>

That's a nice position to be in.  When all else fails these days, blog.  Seriously, everyone's got at least one novel in her/him.
