Here you go worker

After a morning visit to My Gym in Bedford, the twins and I came home for two hours of outdoor time before attempting naps. I raked leaves and gathered wood while the twins ran around and played. Jacqueline, doing her best Snow White, was heard exclaiming, “I don’t get killed, I don’t get killed!” Theodore was running too, yelling, “Sister, don’t get killed!” Apparently the wicked queen’s huntsman had been in the yard. All ended well when daddy gave the twins a multiple stop ride in their wagon. We went from station to station to gather the ropes and bungee cords used to tie everything down in preparation for Sandy. At the end of the ride, which covered all of our driveway and yard, they opened the door and stepped out. I told them they had to pay the driver with the cords they were holding for me, in order to enter the house. They thought that was great. They stepped into the garage and handed over the cords, saying almost simultaneously, “Here you go worker.”

Thanks #2 (God)

This should have come first. I am thankful for God who sent his Son to save us from our sins. The daily reminders of His power, grace, love, and patience are evident all around me. Thank you Lord.

Thanks #1 (Parents)

#1 I’m so thankful for my parents. I’m so glad they did, and still do care. When I feel like so many parents are asleep at the wheel these days, I’m so happy that my parents were present and participating in my life.
