Little things


Today Larry and I slept in. He really needed to since he got home at 4:00 am from doing the show. I just liked to be next to him for a few more hours. I can't wait for tonight because we will actually go to sleep at the same time. Until he gets home I sleep very lightly when he's gone, just waiting to hear the door open. But I don't mind. It's like this...any time my husband gets an opportunity to do something for the Lord I am 100% for it. No question. Nothing to "think about". Just, 'GO!" There has never been a thought in my mind as to whether he should do something spiritual, or discontented feelings within (or without). The only things we have ever really come to blows with are recreational things when they separate us too much. And then we somehow find common ground again. It's gotten easier as the kids have gotten older, and as we have had more money. (If they weren't old enough to stay by themselves, I could pay someone to stay with them while I did a "girl thing" when Larry was doing something else.)

Since we were caught up totally on work for the weekend, we got to do some things for home. We had to drop Savanna off at Nate's birthday party at Tampa lanes and then we went to lunch together and to Lowe's to get a bunch of stuff for the house with some anniversary money that some friends blessed us with. Yippee! We finished shopping and SR called to say she was going to Morgan's to spend the night. So we got Dustin from work and came on home and started setting up the things we got this afternoon for the house and I finished cooking stuff for tomorrow night's meeting.

Among other things today, I got a lime tree. So now that means I have a tangerine, lemon, and lime tree. I really like the idea of having my own fresh fruit, especially when I'm sticking to weight watchers (which I should be all the time!) it helps.

I haven't been out on the patio lately to do my devotions - it's WAY too hot. I'm staying in the air 99% of the time. Soon I will post what God is speaking to me about.

We still have some more to do on the house (just taking a momentary break to sit down and have an iced tea... but when we're done with working I think I'm going to take a soak in my tub (inside, not out...) and maybe snuggle up and watch a movie with Larry or something equally relaxing.

Today was just a "regular" day with small things that happened - nothing "huge" but a nice day. The other day on my desk calendar, it said, "One day you will look back on the little things in life and realize they were the big things." Perhaps.
