The Gideon's were passing out Bibles at Clayton's school this week. I rolled down the window to thank them and they handed me two. I didn't really want to take them because we have so many Bibles around here. I wanted someone else to take it that really needed it. I told Clayton this and he said, "Mom, I'll take them. I have a friend at school that's an atheist. I'm going to try to put it in his backpack." I held it together and told him that was a great idea and I'd be praying for him. I didn't cry in front of him. If I've learned anything from years of living with boys it's this...Boys do not like it when girls cry. So I try really hard not to create an uncomfortable for the majority gender in this house. As I pulled off I couldn't help the tears streaming down my face and I couldn't help but praise the Lord for all He's doing in Clayton's life. The Lord and I had a long talk that morning.
Jack mentioned, in passing, that he ear was hurting. We were walking out the door for school. I told him to take his temperature. Sure enough he had fever. He was thrilled, fist pump and all. I took him to the clinic. Diagnosis...double ear infection. His ear hurt a little? That boy. I think his arm could be severed and he might say ouch...maybe, but I doubt it.
I help a 93 year old lady that lives in a senior community. She is spunky and full of life. Andrew and I get to go to her house every other week to help her. According to her she needs a little help because "she just can't get behind her commode anymore". (Her words not mine) Yeah...when you're 93 you have a pass on baseboards, right? I mean, can I get an amen?? Wednesday was my last day with her because she is moving into an assisted living facility. I was telling the boys about it. Clayton said, "When I get old my kids are going to come live with me so I don't have to move." I told him that would be like us going to live with Mawmaw and Pawpaw and/or Mimi and Tee. His reply..."Awesome! Twinkies and Cokes everyday. How could life get better?!?" I think he's ready to move in tomorrow.
My sister in law sent me this picture this week. It could not be more true for me. That is why I don't keep Goldfish in the house. Goodness those things are yummy!
I got pictures from my friend's fancy wedding shower. We have been together for a long time...some of us have been together as long as the church nursery. I consider these girls treasures. My childhood just wouldn't have been the same without them. xoxo
