YIKES THE RETREAT!!

YIKE'S THE RETREAT is less then a month away!! OK BREATH! JUST BREATH!
You lady's are amazing, putting this together. YIKES!!!! I have all I can do just knowing I have to time my trip, driving to Gatlinburg, from NEW HAMPSHIRE, the little dot on the map, lol... I am ready to do some traveling..I feel like I have lived in this small little circle, thinking I'm in this world all by myself. What a horrible place to be, Bondage of self.. What a prison of my own....I am a People person. I sometimes forget, my whole lives career was working on people..Doing Hair for 30 years..I haven't worked for 2 1/2 yrs now.. WOW, Where did time go?
Back to Gatlinburg TN, I can't wait to get on the road.. My friend who lives in Tennessee said it took her around 23 hrs, she traveled it 5 times in 10 yrs.. But the map says 16 1/2 hr trip. We will See..I had a panic attack a couple times thinking about it.. But NOW, I can't wait to see everyone.. I visualize us together and I crack up laughing.. I am not affraid of it like I use to be.. I know OUR CHILDREN which I always call them my KIDS.. ITS funny b/c I'm a 51 year old KID<lol..

I no longer gonna worry about, if I'm gonna have this & that Done.. IT will be what it is "THY WILL BE DONE"... GOD really has the plan, it will be interesting.. I guess I'm gonna be in cabin called "Touch of Heaven", But I heard things could get changed around...like I said God Has The PLAN.. What is that saying" Tell God Your Plans, and he will Laugh....IT WILL BE ALL GOOD< DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY... I don't know why I spend so much alone, I am happiest when I'm with People...GOD WORKS THROUGH PEOPLE, B/C WE ARE ALL OF ONE.............See you at the retreat!! LOVE YOU ALL< KELLY

Wow, Kelly, I just can\'t wait to meet you! I just love your personality! And I hope we still are both at the Touch of Heaven. You sound like such a terrific person. You always make me smile and even laugh when I read your entries. I heard a voice say to me just before I woke up this morning, \"Don\'t paint your life with certain colors, the colors may change.\" It came through so clearly in my head. Weird, huh? But very true! Hope your day is going well! Love and hugs to you, Diane

I remember my first retreat. The nerves, the fears, but also the excitement. Yes there are many things to learn about one another but you still feel that connection like you\'ve known them all your life. You will have a great time. There will be so many this year that I\'m worried about keeping track of everyone...lol. See you soon. Love Robin

Well Kelly, I thought my drive was going to be long--something like 11-12 hours but you\'ve got me beat! But you are driving with your daughter as I recall so at least you\'ll have some company. I have to do it alone. Still, I\'m looking forward to meeting everyone so it will be worth it! See you soon!! Love, Cherie
