|Pop’s Birthday, August 2014|
Well, school was out today, I worked from home and planned to atleast just wash and dry the six loads or of laundry! I thought I could pile it all on the bed and fold and put away this afternoon. Wasn’t that a good (fun albeit) plan? Yes, until my towels dried for two hours and I realized they weren’t dry at all. I called Nonna (Jeff’s Mom) to see if I could do my clothes there and of course she said yes. Abby and Luke wanted to ride over with me because it had just started sleeting and snowing and they thought this was a mighty crazy thing for their Mom to do. The Fuddy, duddy to actually get out in the weather? But it’s laundry and it’s gotta be done. Sleet, rain, cold, whatever, today is the day.
So we drove the clothes over, loaded them up and came back home.
I got busy with work and the phone rang. It was Nonna saying she was almost done with the clothes and she was cooking her pork chops tonight if we wanted to come over for dinner. So we did. And had the best time around the table. They came to our house on Tuesday night for dinner. In case you are wondering,we normally don’t do two dinners in one week. And the fact that we have this week,couldn’t make me happier! Boy, am I blessed to have the best in laws:) Love that Nonna and Pop!!!
I am thankful for today for the unexpected. Because the unexpected always has a blessing within it. The short time of sleet provided extra icy fun on the trampoline, working at home kept me off the road and on the new software, and the broken dryer brought us together as a family, for the second time this week, what blessings. God is always using our circumstances to bring us closer to Him and to others. “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
