There are 2 major celebrations going on in my life today…

The Daily Dash: August 5, 2016 {#Rio2016 & 70th Birthday}

* Obama takes on Trump
* Clinton pulls ahead in national polls
* Tornado touches down in New Orleans
* Cargo Jet overshot runway in Italy

This Week’s Verse: Ephesians 5:14
This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

Inspiration: God does not give us overcoming life-He gives us life as we overcome ~ Oswald Chambers

* Today is my mom’s 70th birthday! I don’t think she’d mind me sharing her age because she looks SO good…I hope I got her genes 😉 Happy Birthday mom!

Today is also the Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Olympics in RIO! WOOHOO!!! I’m an Olympic junkie and I can’t wait to cheer on Team USA over these next two weeks. I told my son I hope he gets good enough in tennis so I can watch him play in the Olympics one day.

I also feel it bears mentioning that the Macy’s One Day Sale is today and tomorrow. This only happens once in awhile and the savings are incredible. You can discover more details here:
