Yesterday morning as we were getting ready for the day there was a knock at the door. A young guy in our church brought a gift to the door for this frazzled mama. I was a little frazzled because Garrett was trying to tell me all about football and the different plays as I was letting him know that we didn't have time and he needed to brush his teeth. (He is all about stories, football, and talking! I thought it was the girls who talked a lot?!?!) I was also a little frazzled because I had not had coffee for the last few days because we ran out of creamer. Those of you who know me well might be wondering why I am drinking coffee because I hate coffee. Well, not any more. I love it now but only one way...ice, 3 Tbl. creamer, coffee, and two packs of fake sugar. Really not coffee but it serves the purpose of a tasty caffine drink. So the young guy at the door was bringing a gift of creamer. His mom blessed me with creamer and a note that said every mom needs some coffee in the morning. It was really unexpectant and wonderful!
Last night at church a sweet gentleman in our church brought the kids each a treat from England. When his kids lived at home he would bring them a treat home from his trips. He thought of our kids and wanted to bring them these...I had to try just a little bit to make sure they were okay for the kids...seeing as they were from a different country. :)
I will write more this weekend sharing the neat things the Lord has taught us and shown us through this sacrifice. I really feel it is life changing. Tonight I am pretty sleepy and am not thinking straight so I will fill you in soon.
Here's my little Lulu! I just had to share this sweet picture.
