What I want from my birthday tomorrow

I bet you can guess what I am hoping for as a birthday present tomorrow? Yep, my LSC/LOA. It would be the ultimate birthday gift. I have to tell you about my sign that I saw this morning in the paper. I know if you've been following my blog, I am a believer in signs. I think God knows that I'm sometimes so not aware as I should be so He sends me these big neon signs to make me take notice. So, this morning I was reading the newspaper and I was checking out the ads for HEB, our local grocery store. There were these two stone crosses advertised which said, "Grace" and "Hope". Too weird...I collect crosses (and they were a good price too) and my dog is Hope and my daughter is Grace. Coincidence? Maybe...I like to think they are signs.

I went to breakfast with my best friend, her hubby and their beautiful daughter this morning and I got the coolest gifts ever: a lemon tree which I have been wanting and a beautiful collage of my baby girl. Too cool. I can't wait to post them. So, I hope ya'll say a little prayer for me that I get the ultimate birthday present tomorrow (shoot, I'd even take later in the week with the $100 fee for the LSC/LOA).

So, I have realized that my whole world has been Grace lately. I apologize to anybody who I might have offended because I am in la-la land thinking of my daughter. I really am trying to be not so locked in Graceland. I am making the effort to not bring her up so often and to listen to people when they are talking to me. So, please bear with me for a while....this is all so new to me.

Which brings me to the fact that I had forgotten that I'm going to TLA in Houston Tuesday and will be home late Thursday. I've got to pack and double check my reservations....yep, something I would have been drooling over before has become not so important. I normally enjoy the conference and I am sure I will. So, I need to get my act together and get Hope ready for her doggy daycare sleepaway camp (yes, she goes there for boarding because she is off the leash during the day playing with other dogs). I need to make a list. It seems that I can't do anything without a list. Yikes.

Okay so off to bed I go...gotta do my novena and my houston packing list...btw praying for speedup for referrals for everybody still waiting
