It has been a busy week and I am just now getting
ready to show the pictures from this weekend.
My husband took out a good portion of the Field
of Dreams. I don't know how people can live without
a tractor. I think I would give up my car first if I had
to choose. The tractor makes my life so much easier, and
it makes my husband so happy. He loves his tractor.
It has rained a bit this week so it makes it so much
nicer out there. It is so dusty in the valley where I live
that here we get dust pneumonia. Or even sometimes,
people here get Valley Fever. I have these black spots on my
lungs and the doctor said that if I went anywhere else they
would panic but because of living in this valley, it is normal.
I took my son this week to get his drivers license.
We have another driver in the house. This is our
fifth child we have had to teach to drive. This is the
fifth time I have had to sit on the bench outside the
DMV and wait. It always feel like time stops when they
pull away with the tester. It was only about 15 minutes,
but in the 15 minutes my life does pass before my eyes.
From holding the baby for the first time to now. It goes
by that fast I think. I loved the seeing his face light
up as his eyes met mine. I loved how he raised his
arms just a bit in a victory dance. I loved how the
people watching, as he came toward me, said,
quietly "good job."
My favorite brag moment came as the tester, walked
toward me, said, " You have a awesome kid." I was
so thankful for such a wonderful gift, to be his mother.
Before the tester came out, I was on the drivers side of the
car and I said, I am going to pray real quick. So I started praying
and the tester walked up behind us and said something, so I stopped,
and walked away.
Later as we were driving home, my son said that the tester got
in the car and asked, " Was your Mom praying for you?" My son
said "yes, she was". The tester said, " Good, I always like it when
I am being prayed for as I take someone for a test."" Then my son said,
that he thought it was nice that the testers name was "Hesus" (Jesus)
So it has been a good week. I am hoping for a bit of
sewing this morning. I don't know exactly what it
will be. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend,
and your Friday is Fantastic.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!(Psalm. 107:6)
