We had enough time to do another Ladder so we repeated Ladder #1, ran one last loop and then stretched.
We ended with our prayer and COT…then party time!! These sweet and beautiful ladies all hung around in the cold to enjoy some coffee, butternut squash bread, gifts and friendship. Thank you, ladies for helping me start my birthday off right, and thank you FiA for bringing all these special ladies into my life!
