I am not worthy to be the benefactress of your prayers.
But I am benefiting in extraordinary ways!
Today I felt smiled upon, even down the the
seemingly insignificant detail of "...some REALLY good coffee.."
I'm sure some people wondered why I was grinning from ear to ear
while I sipped that coffee,
but I was certain
that a certain request
made by a certain sister just for me...
was the reason that Starbucks had a new flavor of Frapucino come for the Summer.
A certain Mocha Coconut.
And it was "REALLY good coffee"!
I got all my errands done today on Momma Bug's first solo trip to town with 7.
(sounds like the title of a book, doesn't it?)
It took over 8 hours, but my children were wonderful.
Dare I say... perfect?
I always know when we're enjoying each other because that's when
people stop and stare not only in wonder,
but with envy.
Sheesh. Even I stop and stare in wonder!
Aloria slept all day,
the children were helpful and sweet to each other.
and the big kids kept on their feet without drooping too much.
The potty stops were minimal. (That's a thank-you-Lord all it's own!)
We covered all the stops
and crossed out the things on our list.
The drive was gorgeous - vibrant greens in the scenery
were absolutely AWESOME. Candy for the eye.
We made it home before dark.
No one had a melt-down waiting for dinner.
They are now all tucked into bed
and the only thing that could be better would be for me to be tucked into bed...
That's coming soon!
I just wanted you to know how grateful I am for sisters far and wide.
Your prayers bless me. Your kind words bless me.
My gracious, smiling, Heavenly Father
because of you.
