Ah yes Friday! Pretty excited about it being FRIDAY this week!
What a week it has been!
Started with a dead battery at SporTman’s baseball tournament over the weekend. I was about an hour from home and wasn’t sure what to do. I called AAA, and they arrived with in 15min to help. They determined it was in fact a dead battery, so they were able to put in a new battery right there on the spot! About an hour later I was back driving the vehicle. And to think I had almost dropped my AAA membership recently!
I am also thankful for a dear blogging friend Lisa at Lisa Notes. As I posted in an earlier post our family is struggling with an unexpected crisis right now. And dear Lisa has been praying for us and sent several helpful books to me in the mail! It’s women like Lisa that make me just love the blogging community even more!!
Another dear friend stopped over the other night with a bag full of yummy goodies. God must have known I needed a little encouragement and she sent a friend loaded with yummy pumpkin whoppie pies, and some delicious coffee and a ton of other treats!
A power walk outside tonight under the full moon, is another favorite. It was a beautiful night, with a slight cool fall breeze. It did this mom good to get out for a walk!
And last and certainly not least…..my family is the greatest. As I have mentioned our family is dealing with a tough health issue right now ( so sorry I just can’t blog about it quite yet, but do email or facebook me for more info). Well my entire extended family came for a visit. Made my weekend! So nice to feel so supported!

Every year for the past 3 years or so, dear husband has become a cheerleader! Every football and basketball season our local high school cheerleaders have a father/daughter night for the cheerleaders. And every year for a variety of reasons some of the girls don’t’t have a dad around to cheer with them. So they asked one of their teachers……….my husband!!
Can I tell you just how pathetic the dear man looks as a cheerleader! 🙂 He can play drums, but he certainly doesn’t have the moves for cheerleading! But he does it each year with a good attitude and has fun with it!
I think he also sees a greater purpose in all of this, we are part of this great community we live in, and we strive to be a light to our local school district. To “be there” for people and for the students. Drums and I both teach for the local high school that our kids attend, we are an integral part of this town, and we strive to make a difference for Christ…….even if it means being a cheerleader! 🙂 Being a light in the darkness is what God has called us to, our prayer is that God will use us here in our town!
Also, I must tell those of you who are regular readers here at Jesus and Dark Chocolate, our family could really use your prayers right now, we are enduring an unexpected crisis that I just can’t blog about at this time. Please feel free to email me or send me a private message on facebook and I can tell you more. But do pray for us……we need it!!
