Oooooooh! My worry hat!! I'm not a huge fan of my worry hat! It's a hat that I try to pray myself out of wearing but more often than not, especially when my children are involved, I end up wearing it anyway. It's not at all invisible; everyone knows I'm wearing it! As hard as I try to lose this hat, it randomly appears and it never appears in a small way...NOPE! I have on my worry hat and EVERYONE knows!!!
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. I'm also a believer that if you plan for the worst the best will happen. But, if the worst does happen then you've planned for it!
My youngest son is going on a field trip to the Washington National Zoo today. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE his teacher and I completely trust the chaperone for my son's group but...I'm also a believer that no one can care for my children the way that I can, so bring on the worry!
I've chatted with him about safety and being responsible. "Stay with your group and DON'T wander off!" But the thought of the group wandering off as my son's mind is wandering in the jungles of Africa, swinging from the trees with the other monkeys and not realizing that his group has left without him - that's what is running through my head!
So, I'm praying, and preparing...

- First and foremost, I am a child of God! I am also the wife of a superhero who has loved and supported me since I was a child. I am a mother of three wonderful children who have taught me how to live, love and throw mini temper-tantrums and hissy-fits (especially now that they are older)! AND [very exciting] I'm an author! My book, A Little Yellow Star, is a Christian Children's book about seeing God in all things. There is more information at the bottom of my blog - Hope you'll check it out, and if you do, I hope you LOVE it!!

I am so excited. I just received word today that I will be a participant in the Baltimore Book Festival. I will be there on the first day – Friday, September 23, 2011 from 12:00 noon through 8:00 in the evening. I will have a four foot table under the author’s tent and I will be selling and promoting my book. I will be having a drawing for some free books as well as free give-a-ways and plenty of fun stuff for the kids. I am very excited for this awesome opportunity and I hope to see some familiar faces out there. Check out the website for more information: http://www.baltimorebookfestival.com/index.cfm?page=plan
