Today was very interesting. Yes I’m exhausted but it’s a good kind. I’m tired but I have a very warm fuzzy feeling inside. I usually don’t go anywhere on Mondays because I use it as a rest day at least in the mornings before my babies get home and turn the house upside down.
However yesterday in church we realized that we needed pictures for publicity. So I stood in front of church and picked like 12 random girls and asked if they would help out with a photo shoot. They all agreed and showed up today
So because I can’t be a hypocrite and ask people to show up this morning and then cover my head with a duvet and sleep, I left my bed amidst tears
But I did and headed for the mainland.
Okay so the traffic was intense but we made it. I got there on time and ready to go. The shoot started off slow because it seemed like all the pictures in my opinion were too “posey” and I wanted to capture real joy, thankfulness and the beauty of women being together. Kinda like a “girls just wanna have fun!!!” Shoot full of happy girls. …oh! By the way if you know that song you should be called “Aunty”. Lol!!!
Half way through every one started letting their hair down and we started having fun and really great pictures were born.
No I’m not showing you the pictures yet. You’ll have to wait for them. Some will be used for #Amaghimo publicity. Trust me.
At some point today they just connected and God reminded me of the blueprint for JUGN…
“Building Frienships…Giving hope !!!
It was so refreshing to see women not at each other’s throats but holding each other’s hands.
Today I’m thankful for the beautiful women in my life. All of them who in their special way make it better. I’m thankful for the amazing women who inspire me; whose lives I look at and know that God hasn’t even started with me. I’m thankful for friends who end up being my sisters
I’m thankful for all the women who pray for me, serve me, love me , cheer me on.
Today I’m thankful for women especially all the beautiful DCC women who make all our JUGN programmes a huge success
