Year old memories
Gosh, We were really in the countdown at this time last year - just one week from opening! I was measuring and taping out booth spaces, vendors were bringing in their basic setup to begin putting up their creative displays, and we even had a few eager customer drop in to see if they could shop yet! I was also spending literal hours on the phone trying to get my credit card machine up and going. sheesh. But in all of it, God's hand was evident, and a wonderfully helpful atmosphere was displayed. Good relationships were forming. As excited as I was, I sure was nervous too and was having trouble sleeping. If I'd had real comprehension of what was ahead I would have been sleeping like a baby.
