This described my weekend, as I went to our district's annual Spring Refresh Woman's Conference. I so needed the time away and even though I'm exhausted, it was a wonderful weekend. It was truly a time of spiritual refreshment and made me all the more thankful for the many ways I am blessed.
This week I continue to count blessings #1572-1580.
