Yesterday morning my husband was sent on an out-of-state fire assignment! He will be working as a Radio Operator this time, which should keep him out of hazardous working conditions. It will be a tough couple weeks (if they keep him for the full 14 days) for both of us, but we are so very grateful for the extra work and overtime! I’m just praying life doesn’t get even half as crazy as it did the last time he was out of town! 😉
At our last Little Flowers meeting the girls all made Spiritual Bouquet cards to give to their mothers during our tea party. While I was setting the table I happened to notice Chiquita’s (age 7) card and her little list of prayers she had been offering, without any reminders on my part to complete the assignment. It made me so happy to see that my she (actually both my girls!) had been praying for me! Both cards are such a treasure!
I really don’t like it when my kitchen counters are covered with stuff! I usually avoid (for the most part) taking any pictures of these messes, which happen especially when I am trying to do too many things at once. Last Friday night was definitely one of those times… Groceries and mail still needed to be put away, flowers needed to be arranged, various items all over the place to set the table, remnants of my cake decorating, and half decorated pretzel rods, and more… Thankfully it didn’t take too long to clean up and looked beautiful in the morning!
