Surprise, Surprise!!

Today…..feeling slightly better….and I am so glad!!

Yesterday, my oldest daughter stopped over and did some cleaning that I haven’t been able to accomplish.  And, yes, she brought the love of my life with her:

She is getting so big…I couldn’t pick her up due to the pain in my abdomen.  But, she was content to look out the window at the cars going by and saying, “Car”, “truck”, “oooohhhh….too fast”.

After they returned to their home, I took a nap…a much needed nap since I’m trying to recuperate.

Around 6 p.m., a truck pulls into my driveway.  Out hops my youngest daughter with two friends.  They’re getting something out of the back of the truck bed and saying, “Surprise!!!”

My friend had gotten new patio furniture, and she contacted Lindsay who contacted Josh with the truck.  She gave me the patio furniture that she replaced….thus replacing my old, worn out set.  This had been planned for almost two weeks, and everyone kept mum about it.  That, in itself, was an even bigger surprise because my children are not very good at keeping these kinds of things to themselves. 

The furniture I did have was taken out to the road since today is trash day.  It found a new home within a matter of an hour when some one stopped with a trailer attached to their vehicle and loaded it up.  I hope the new owners enjoy their new patio furniture as much as I am going to enjoy mine.   Kind of a “pay it forward”, don’t you think?

I had gotten the globe that is sitting in the middle of the table a few months ago.  Along with this, came some citronella candles that fit into the bottom….very nice since the mosquitoes seem to be rather bad already this year.  I do enjoy sitting here in the evening….the peacefulness, the creek meandering by, but I do not enjoy being bitten and itchy.

And what can I say….my son then arrived and mowed my lawn!!

A spectacular day….even though I’m not feeling well.  All three of my children and my friend went the extra step to extend some love…..and isn’t that what life is all about?

Have a wonderful day in Him,

    Oh Beth…I’m so happy for you! It looks so pretty….bright and cheerful. I love to put things out on the end of our drive that others can enjoy or probably take apart and fix. :o) Continuing to pray for your recovery….sweet abiding with our Father while you rest.

    You have a great family & your new patio set is so nice. I’m sure your old furniture will get great use with a new family…I love when things are re-purposed too. I hope you feel better.
