I lost my comfort zone

I'm taking a break from what I'm doing right now.

Our church is hosting a ladies retreat next weekend, which I'll miss because I have to go to Ohio with Ethan and the Children's Choir. That right there is a whole other story!
Anyhow, I can't go to the retreat, but I was asked to call around to different businesses and ask if they would like to donate something for a door prize.

I. DON'T. LIKE. IT.

I don't like to ask for things from people. I am way out of my comfort zone with this. I think I'm breaking out in hives. (kidding) I get all tongue-tied and sound so blah!

But I'll do it. I'll do my part with a happy heart.

Yes, I know that rhymes.

Well, back to the calling. I need to be done so that I can go get the kids from school. They tend to frown upon leaving them there all night!

Praying God blesses your time calling in abudance for the retreat attendees.

Not a fun chore, but glad you are approaching it as best as you can.

Oh, that would be absolutely tortuous for me. Way out of my comfort zone as well!

I'll say a prayer that is goes quick & that everyone wants to give!

I HATE IT TOO!!! I will not ask you for a dollar, much less something else.

I hope it went well and you were blessed more than you thought!

Hugs! And, Congrats!

Eeeew. I know how you feel. In order for the hubby and i to ride in the Trek Across Maine we MUST raise $500 each for the American Lung Association. No fun, but very necessary and for a good cause.

"Etan and the Children's Choir" would be a good name for a rock band. Well, maybe not...maybe a folk or country band.

I hate that, too, but just think of how the ladies will be blessed by your efforts!

I am so much the same way. I could give you $25 bucks without batting an eyelash if I had it and knew you needed it. On the other hand, I couldn't ask you for 25 cents if I were short a quarter.
