Excuse the language, but this tickled me.
There has been a lot going on this past week. The time SPRUNG forward and jacked everybody’s sleep up. The kids were on Spring Break, so groceries had to be stocked. The world went into a frenzy, as the Covid-19, aka Corona Virus was found close to home, so folks bought up all of the toilet paper. Rounded all off with a Friday the 13th! I am not a superstitious person by any means, but really? That’s how the week was going to end?
The kids went to visit Big Sister & Grandma, so Damon and I had us some QT. While I was perfectly fine to stay glued to my couch all weekend, Damon decided we needed to get out and get a few supplies. I hadn’t even seen daylight on Saturday, and fully expected to see some version of The Purge when I finally did go outside. So grateful that that was not the case, we did have to go to a couple of stores just to get milk & eggs. One girl had on a full on hazmat mask working at Walmart! SMH! Damon said, “You know her Grandpa probably sent her to work with that mask. Pulled it out of his garage.” HA!
I was so glad to get away from those folks and back in the coziness of my own house. “Oh couch, how I missed you in those 2 hours I was dragged from you.” #grownupmoviestowatchwithnoanimation
Sunday morning came, and church was still on. I did feel like worship was necessary in dealing with all that is going on. We went to praise HIM, and I felt better about tackling the week.
Since Spring Break has been extended, Grandma offered up a few more days to keep the kids, and since we do miss them, and wanted to lay eyes on everybody, we made the trip to Waco to check in.
We were all sitting on the porch, and while Damon & Donovan decided to cut Mama’s grass, we all got into the swing of working on the rest of the yard. Mama went in and boot them boots on….
And got at it!
We had a great time digging in the dirt, finding snails, re-potting plants, and just spending time together as a family. It was nice out, until it started to rain, then we decided to pack it in. After all was complete, I kissed all 4 of my babies & my sweet Mama, and we set on our way home. Praying that our children & family stay protected from harm and sickness. In Jesus’ name.
3 John 1:2 2 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
