Multitude Monday: Refilling my Tank

I sat at a craft fair all day Saturday and all afternoon Sunday.  It wasn't the best as far as sales go because there just wasn't much traffic.  But I did get to meet some new people and had a lovely chat with the woman who sat next to me.  

However, even though I'm a people person, and do love being around others, I can get overloaded around too many people for long periods of time.  I came home with a headache and a drained feeling.  I truly need my alone times and need to have time to refresh and refocus.  I need times of peace and quiet and focusing solely on the Lord. 

Today, my desire is to spend time in prayer and contemplation.  I want to spend time thanking God for the blessings in my life.  And I need to just be quiet and listen and get my emotional and spiritual tank refilled.

This week I'm thankful for blessings #2286 - 2300

2286.  A wonderful time with Stephen.

2287.  Getting everything done on my very full plate this past week.
