This week was very stressful for me. Our pool pump died, our frig died and then our coffee maker. I had started to have a little pity party about my money frittering away when life brought me some perspective.......My FIL being in the hospital and not knowing what was going on with him and then on the heels of that my nephew crashing his motorcycle and being in critical condition.
Life and God have a way of setting our perspective straight! Those other issues are just things. I can choose to replace them or not. But you can't replace your family and those you love. Thankfully both my FIL and nephew are doing better. My FIL has been moved to a rehab facility to strengthen his legs before he goes home....which should be next week some time. My nephew is out of ICU and on the mend. He is in a lot of pain......broken arm, leg, ribs, back, bruised lung and whip lash. Thanks for all your prayers for him!! Please continue to pray for his recovery!
My week did end on a very happy note!! Take a look:
I love it when the teenagers help me out with dramas in CrossWalk. This is about Solomon trying to figure out who the baby belonged to. When Solomon said "cut it in half", the boy sitting in the dark shirt gasped!! they were so in to it!!
Then we went out side for a survivor type "wisdom" challenge. some of the things they had to do were eat 10 crackers, memorize scripture, hula hoop. It was a blast!
No picture today....I was so relaxed, I forgot!!
We worked in the yard, read books, and had our neighbors over for dinner.
It was a great day!
We had our staff over tonight for a Sushi Party!
Everyone made their own sushi roll and then we all tried each one and voted on who had the best one.
It was a lot of fun!!
Our neighbors gave us this frig that they replaced 2 years ago and we have become very accustomed to having it in our garage. So it was painful when it died this week......not only because of the cost to replace it (because I now can't live without one in my garage) but also because of the meat I am having to cook up due to it thawing before I realized what was happening...ugh.
I had a HUGE package of bacon that thawed from the freezer, so tonight....BLTs!
SO happy to have everyone home!!!
We celebrated with a steak dinner and then an evening of cards!!!
I truly love that my family enjoys playing together!!
The pool was ready to swim in today....despite the pool man!!!
We had fun playing volleyball....kids vs the adults....and then the boys played around with the water balls. We ended the day with some homemade pizza!!!
Pretty close to perfect!
So how was your week? Link up and give us a peek!!!
