Day 29 in tangoing with Mickey
You guys, I am so excited! Today Mike and I played/sang with Damascus Road, the contemporary band at our church. It was Rally Day, so it was a full service with organ, choir and the band. Very celebratory.
When I went into the church office to see if there was anything left on my desk for me to do while at church, there was a package there. Inside was a “Sparkle Mickey” which is a TY Beanie Baby Mickey Mouse! He has sparkly red trousers, sparkly gold shoes and sparkly silver gloves, a la Michael Jackson. LOVE IT! There was also a card which reads: “Thanks! I’m looking forward to seeing you. Keep up the good work, and thank you for being my friend. I will be waiting here for you. Love, Mickey.”
Can you even stand it???? A Mickey Drive-By! What a lovely and inspiring gift from a lovely and inspiring friend!
My plan for today was to go to the church picnic, and walk right by the dessert table. Now these are not just any desserts. These are one inch squares of divine deliciousness from the Picnic Basket in Libertyville, all sorts of chocolatey, coconuty, lemony, sugary goodness. In years past I would help myself to anywhere from four to six of these delicacies. As I thought about it this morning, my resolve was waning. I could feel the draw of the dreamy dessert table. Then…I found Mickey, and I knew that for today I could walk right by that table without a second look. And guess what, faithful readers,…I did just that! I’m still sugar-free four weeks later!
VICTORY! Thanks for reading. Meet you at the Kingdom!
