Awesome Week for the Blevins

This past week has just been great! Seriously, it's been GREAT!!! So here's a play by play (and for the fam, there will be pictures with the long post so bear with me).

MONDAY: got up at 6:30 and went on a 2 mile jog with my friend Erin. Then I took the kids to my friend Kelly's house while I went to radiation (from here on out will be called rads for short). After I was done with that, I went back to Kelly's and had girl time with her. We were able to just sit and chat for about 1.5 hours and talk about stuff. I really really value my friendship with her and consider her one of my mentors. She has such a sweet spirit about her and really really loves the Lord and seeks to follow His will at all costs. She's been such a blessing in my life.

TUESDAY: took the kids to parents day out, then went to rads. After that, I went to Lynne's house. She is the lady that I am starting the breast cancer care group with. We had lunch and chatted for a while. Then she took me over to the Athletic Club here in C'ville to show me the things they are doing for Breast Cancer awareness month. While there, I met another survivor who had the same surgeon as me and she just finished up her rads. I love meeting other people who have walked in my shoes...it's like an instant bond that you have with them. Then I went to get the kids at school and took them to Sonic for slushies.

WEDNESDAY: got up and went on a 4 mile jog with Erin then came back home, showered, changed and met her and her kids at Chick-fil-A. Kirk and Chloe were able to play together which was fun. After that I went to rads then got a surprise visit. Kelly called and was out my way so she stopped over with her little one. So, we got another visit and the kids got playtime together.

THURSDAY: took the kids to parents day out, went to rads, then set off to Nashville for David. I had to go to another Chick-fil-A to get some things. When I got there, the other owner's wife called and wanted to have lunch together. I hadn't seen them since May so she and I had a totally unexpected lunch together. It was GREAT! I just considered this a total bonus in my day. After that, I picked up with kids from school and took them for flu shots. They did AWESOME!!! I was so proud of them.Then I was going to get Disney On Ice tickets for us next week and my friend called and told me not to get them because she had free ones for us!!!! BIG BONUS!!!!

FRIDAY: had an eye doctgor appointment then rads. After I got home, my friend Kate who I met at chemo came up to Clarksville from Franklin for a visit. We had such a good time just chatting and catching up with each other. She has finished chemo and is getting ready to have her surgery next week then she will do rads. After she left, it was time for the fam to load up and head to the Weatherford's for supper club (3 couples who get together each month for dinner). It was great. We ate, talked, and played Partini - one of the best games ever invented.


SATURDAY: OPERATION SERVE!!! This is a day when our church just simply serves the city. There are tons of projects to sign up for from rebuilding neighborhoods to stocking homeless shelters with food to loving on unwed pregnant teens etc... Just a big variety of ways to show the love of Jesus by serving others. Chloe and I served together this year by going to an assisted living facility and singing then doing crafts with the residents. You should have seen Chloe. She just loved and hugged on these "grandmas and grandpas" and was having a ball with them. She sang, did a craft, and ran around entertaining. It truly warmed my heart to the point of tears at seeing how loving she was to the elderly. Please watch the video of her doing just that. And now Jordan and Kim are coming and we are going to spend the rest of our weekend with them. So excited.

I just love this picture! I've been talking to Chloe a lot about what it means to serve.
