this is the real deal...

I'm finally up for a breather...
from some activities
and oh how good it feels

but honestly I think I do better staying extra busy
I'll be doing some backtracking this week on a few things
but I'll start with my very favorite thing...

this past week I volunteered for our church's VBS
before I walked in the first day
I was thinking...what did I get myself into just because my week was jam-packed...
selfish yes...I know
but deep down I knew I would love to volunteer because I love to do that sort of thing

 I left speechless at the end of this week...
almost everyday I wanted to cry out of joy and excitement
and as a matter of fact got teary-eyed quite a bit
seeing all the children sing and praise God was so moving

granted my girls are underage a bit to go but since I volunteered they were in the preschool program that is offered to us

and they loved it so much
it was the perfect sidetrack to some stress that our family has been exposed to

God's perfect timing that I had those 3-4 hours knowing my girls were having a great time and having fun with some kiddos myself...

but I have to tell you one of the best part about the entire week was the first day
as I picked Madison up from her room
"I met Taylor today Momma!"
"Oh okay...sweetie...why don't you say good bye to her"
So she did...

and about 15-20 minutes later in the car
{because it takes that long to get to the car with my girls}
Madison said to me...
"That was Taylor mommy...."

pause...
pause...
pause...

"Taylor Swift! Mommy!!!"

..."who?" I said...
"You know Mom...that was Taylor Swift..."

"maybe her name is Taylor too then" I said
"no....Mommy that was Taylor Swift..."

well there was no arguing with that
and all week I got to hear about Taylor Swift
and how she sings
how she is her new friend
and how she was able to meet her...

So the next day I asked Taylor "Swift" if I could take their picture together
and she happily said yes...
and as I was talking with her I told her that Madison was so excited to meet the real "Taylor Swift"
{wink...wink}

and Taylor said to me..."So that is why Madison told me she saw me on tv"
oh we just died laughing...


And the last day with their pillows they made
Taylor wrote Miss Madison a special message just for her on it...

and that made me a very happy momma!
