A driver-less truck with a boat trailer attached came careening down my street and smashed into my van in my driveway. We live on somewhat of a hill and my neighbor up at the top of street had his truck/trailer parked on the street and I guess the brake slipped. His insurance company is taking care of it, thank God. But I'm even more thankful that my kids, or ANY kids weren't on the street or in my driveway! My van is "chippy", to put it mildly.
My week also included this:
I could say alot of things about my ex-husband, but here I will just say that he has a really nice dog : )
They (dog and ex) came to visit this week because he is moving out of state and wanted to spend a day with the kids, knowing it will likely be a long time before he sees them again. There are definitely some "chipped" hearts over here.
I will refrain from all the negative things I could say here, and just share that this move has the potential to mean he will start supporting his kids again. If you're a praying person, I would sure appreciate prayers for that to happen.
My week ended with this:
Can you hear me squealing for joy??
A friend called Sunday afternoon and asked me if they could bring me an old door. Well, of course!
I know it seems a little shallow, but I really do believe it's the little things-those stepping stones of grace-that help you through the tough times. This old door makes me happy, and I need a little happy, ya know?
was one of the featured posts!
Who knows what this coming week will bring, let's just try to count our blessings and go with the flow, ok : )
God's grace to you!
