Volunteers and Mountains

For those of you who don’t know, I work full time in a bookstore at my church.

Yep. Our church has about 19,000 members, so, the bookstore is very busy. I love it. It’s just the perfect place for me to work even though I don’t write Christian Fiction.

This past weekend, we had a HUGE book sale going on for THE STORY. It’s a version of the Bible we’re going to go through as a church.

So, that meant over 100 volunteers to help out at the sale locations. It was quite an endeavor that had many hands involved to pull it off.

We had SOOOO much fun, despite the 115 degree weather. Here’s me with a volunteer:

Yep. That’s me in the hat! My sweet hubby convinced me to wear that cowboy had so I’d be easily identified as the “leader” of a certain section.

It sure panned out. It was fun to dig that thing out. Not to mention saved me from the blazing sun.

I’m looking forward to another weekend of craziness. But hey, that’s the world I live in, so I’m comfy.

In other news:

My stepmom (I call her Mum) is starting her fourth cycle of treatment this week. That means FIVE days in a hospital bed hooked up to chemo drugs. BUT, there’s good news.

The PET scan from yesterday shows the chemo is working its magic on that tumor in her spine. AND….she’s even getting some good mobility back in her legs. So much that she’s shed the wheelchair, walker AND arm crutches.

She’s using her hiking poles to steady herself.

That’s a mountain climber for you. She’ll be back climbing those fourteeners sooner than we all think. She’s so strong. Her attitude is so amazing it’s just inspiring.

So, thanks to all who’ve been thinking and praying for her.
