Still not finished, but.....
I've lost my voice....allergies are raging...I'm dead-dog brain is exploding...

and my heart is FULL!!!! No, make that OVERFLOWING.

Still at Finishing School and it goes from 8 in the morning and I'm not getting home til after 10. Even though the days are packed, you're still left wanting more. This is GOOD stuff :). It's Titus2 (especially beginning at verse 4) being lived out in a way that speaks to the heart...older women INVESTING in the lives of younger women. These gals are amazing... The "school" is exceeding my expectations (how often does THAT happen?).

Because the things they're sharing are based in God's word, I've been convicted of many things related to my role as wife and mother......all the while, however, being totally esteemed as a WOMAN. Being taught what a Godly wife...mother...woman looks like. Yeah, I thought I knew, but it's like once again, I'm seeing in technicolor what was formerly in black and white.

Oh, it's my birthday :). I've been celebrating since Tad & the kids first woke up this morning, and I've never stopped today. The three "diva's" sang to me (Kay, Emilie & Donna), the 160 or so women at the conference sang to me, Kay and her staff gave a dreadful serenade, my new friends gave me presents (!), a not-so-new friend give me a "sisterhood" gift (a part of herself)...and I came home to lots of special snail mail and some fun emails....I'm just generally feelin' the love. Not bad for a 40-something birthday. I most cherish knowing a memory was made today. I'm feelin' "Youniquely Woman"...!

Here's a pic of me and "the girls" after a l o n g day--and night--of finishing......

Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often) to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...

For the complete explanation, see
