MARCH 2010


Dear MOMS,

Happy spring! The beautiful snowy winter was fun but I am ready for the warmer weather and more time outside with my kids.

This month we are happy to have Eunice Cheshire back along with Kathy Paxton to talk about "Rediscovering the Wisdom of a Child". We will learn ways to reconnect spiritually in the simple things we do every day. Due to CLC early release our meeting will be held from 9:30-11. Therefore, our committee announcements will start early to allow adequate time for our speakers. Please join us to relax and enjoy fellowship before Spring break begins. May all those traveling have safe and wonderful vacations.

In honor of Saint Patrick's Day one of my favorite Irish Blessings:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

God Bless You,

Megan Thornton
