~ Collin drove home to get the trailer and camera. It was his first time hooking up the trailer alone. I called up my DIL Jessie who has hauled horses around since she was sixteen. Speaker phone on, she walked him through all the checkpoints, talking as if she could see exactly what Collin was doing. Thank you, Lord, that my boys have married capable women. And thank you, Lord, for the growing maturity of my youngest son.
~ Wednesday was the final day of my girlfriend weekend. On Saturday we stayed in our jammies all day while we talked and talked and talked. On the drive home from the airport in the car without AC, the rays of sun were hypnotizing me. My body was shrink-wrapped in fatigue. My tried and true stay-awake strategies had lost their efficacy. I stopped at Staples and saved my life with a $6.99 purchase. Bubble wrap. I love, l-o-v-e, to pop bubble wrap. Popping those pockets of air kept me awake until I got home. Thank you, Lord, for protection and for the most wonderful invention of man: bubble wrap.
Tell me, my friend, what are you thankful for this day?
