I will be headed to this convention…

…and I am beyond excited!

I’m ready to start packing today, but I don’t think Stephen would appreciate the suitcase sitting out in our room for the next week!

For those who don’t know, MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers (infants through kindergarten).

The MOPS International mission statement is this…

MOPS International exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.

To many it is a lifeline – a chance to laugh, talk, cry, talk, eat, be crafty, talk, pray for each other, talk and feel supported in the journey of motherhood.

To feel like they aren’t alone on “Planet Mom.”

I am co-coordinating our group this year and we have an AMAZING group of women. And the best part is we all know what one another is going through.

We’re all on the same planet. That’s a great feeling.

So, even though I will be missing our regular meeting, I am super excited to be with 5,000 other inhabitants of “Planet Mom” next weekend for three days and I’m just wondering…

Are you going? Anybody? Anybody?

Or have you been before? What should I pack?

And by the way, PRAISE THE LORD, all of my money is raised! He is SO good!
