For the first time ever, I am accepting offers of help for preparing for the big party. I am a bit uncomfortable with this, as I view this party as a gift to my friends, family and co-workers. However, so many folks have made genuine offers to help, I find I can't refuse. So today, instead of our usual Bible Study, the ladies are coming over to 'keep me company' while I get ready. I am blessed with truly wonderful friends.
