Special Treats....

...are lots of fun. In our family, the kids look forward to special treats. Tonight was ice cream night at our house. Our local DQ was running a promotion in which a percentage of all Blizzards sold on this day are donated to Children's hospitals. We couldn't pass that up! We loaded up all the kids and away we went. Most of our brood had cookie dough blizzards. Albert has Strawberry Cheesequake. Manny had a Snickers Blizzard. I had a Georgia Mud Fudge. This is the first time in days and days I've had any carbs. My body isn't used to things like that anymore but it was a special treat for a special cause. My tummy wasn't very happy about it later...
At the end of our visit, the kids got special stickers for participating in the Children's Hospital night. They were excited and happy...and sticky and messy. But very satisfied! It was a backwards sort of night...dinner wasn't served until a couple hours later. Ice Cream before dinner.....yum...

Know that the Lord is always with you, wrapping His loving arms around you and holding on tight!
Psalms 18:2-6 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
