I’m home from my grand adventure to Nashville. The Empowered to Connect conference was great – as many times as I’ve heard the material, I never stop learning new things. Next up is Dallas in January followed by Denver in April – this is a lot of adventure for a mom from Idaho.
When I got up to speak, I was nervous, but when I saw my family’s picture up on the screen, they seemed so close and I felt much better. There were over 900 people there, but after nearly two days together, they felt like friends.
Sweet Pea picked me up at the airport yesterday, which gave us an hour and a half to talk before we got home. When we pulled in the driveway, Sunshine ran out to meet us followed by Eby and Little Man who proclaimed, “Mommy, don’t ever go away like that again!”
Once in the house, everyone began talking to me at once and my head felt like it was going to split open. I was still feeling nauseous from the turbulent flights and my head was fuzzy. One after another, the kids needed to show me special things from the past few days. I heard the details of Dimples’ camping birthday party, Rusty’s Homecoming dance, Ladybug’s volleyball game, and much, much more.
Today I am focusing on “Connecting” with my kids – since I’ve been Empowered and all.
Thank you to each one of you who introduced yourself to me at the conference and for your kind comments. I hope to meet more of you in Dallas and Denver.
Have a great start to your week, friends. I intend to work hard today and set the course for a productive week.
