New Life!

We have a flower at the corner that was tall and beautiful when it bloomed. Then it turned hard and gray. You can see the talk gray stalk in the photo, that used to be green with a pretty flower on top.

But, now there is new growth – the green is just visible at the bottom of the picture.

I don’t know yet if it will grow up to become a flower or nit, but I do see the hope of new life in it. I love that about plants, so often they look finished, but a little attention and water and they come back!

I think people can be the same, there are times that we look finished, yet a little love goes a long way and we spring back!

Give a day, get a Disney day

When we found out we were coming to CA for the CR Summit and that we’d have a free day at the end we started scheming about what we’d do with that day. There are lots of options, but Disney surfaced to the top, especially once we figured out we could go for free!

Our group spent a night at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma helping after the ice storms last winter. It was a fun team bonding experience and made it so we could all come to Disneyland today for free!

It’s been a fun day. We took a break in the late afternoon for dinner and came back to ride a few more rides.

Morgan and I have had a great time re-visiting our engagement spot.

I’m glad for the volunteer day, for our friends, and for our day here today!

The Presidential Suite

Our friend offered us a hotel in Anaheim. It ended up being the presidential suite at the Worldmark Hotel, a suite that sleeps 8 and overlooks Disneyland. It was a night of luxury for us.

It was really cool to be able to watch the Disney fireworks from our balcony!
