Candlelight Christmas

The evening after our trip to Grapevine, our church had a ladies Candlelight Christmas. It was really awesome as different ladies decorated the tables and each had its own unique theme. Our group was all from Mom2Mom and it was nice to chat over dessert while our kiddos were otherwise occupied.

Aren't we cute?

My friend, Sharla (above in the pink shirt) decorated our table and, as you can see, she's quite talented.

We definitely had the brightest and blingiest (is that even a word?) table there so you know I absolutely LOVED it! Sharla even had these cute jars filled with candy for us to take home as sourvenirs.
This was such a special night and I appreciated Sharla asking me sit at her table so much. Having been involved with a similar project at our last church, I also greatly appreciate all of the hard work I know she put into making it awesome.

On another note, you know that thing I've been asking you to pray for? Well, I just found out my prayer has still not been answered and, quite frankly, I'm really in a bad place right now. I'm angry and, to be honest, I'm mostly angry at God. And myself for believing something that obviously wasn't to be.

I'm bitter, negative and just don't know which way to turn right now. So, if you happen to think about it, I promise you won't waste a prayer on my mental state. Or on Tay's arm since it's also still not straight. We're starting PT in the New Year and I hope it will work. Nothing seems to be going our way right now.

I know "everything happens for a reason" and "He only says 'no' when there's something better around the corner." But, you know what? I'm tired of saying those things. And I'm tired of hearing them. And I'm also going to stop typing now because my bitterness is raging at the moment.

So, if I don't get back on the ol' blog in the next couple of days, please know we wish you each a very Happy New Year. May 2010 be much, much better than 2009.
