My good friend, Henriann, who also happens to be our minister's wife invited me and some other ladies on a trip to her father's condo on Padre Island. We flew down there together and spent 4 nights and 5 days RELAXING! It was so wonderful to talk, laugh, read, swim in the pool, swim in the ocean, eat out, watch girlie movies, and talk some more. We didn't have any children, husbands, or responsibilities to distract us.

Three of the ladies that went were Henriann's roommates from ACU. It was fun to listen to them reminisce about their college days. Their stories sounded a lot like my roommates and I in college.

I truly enjoyed getting to know everyone better, and I can honestly say I learned a lot from them. What a blessing it is to have strong Christian role models as friends in my life. Thanks for a marvelous time girls, and a special thanks to Henriann who invited us!

A view of the beach from our balcony. The water was so clear and calm. We saw fish swimming around every time we got in. A couple of the girls saw sting rays. I am glad I wasn't out there then.

We all decided to get toe rings. They fitted them to our toes and everything (using Windex of all things). They are so much more comfortable than the clamp kind you find at most stores. We didn't tell any of our husbands and then told each other how long it took for them to notice. Wes noticed with in an hour of when we got home. Avery wanted to know why I had a ring on my toe! Henriann's husband, Todd, our minister who Wes loves working with, took 6 days to notice. Ha!

Looks like lots of fun! I loved reading your post about your mission trip, too. It's encouraging to see God's work through and in you.
