Little Snippets of Life....

Thursday, while we were driving away from our home heading down to Queen Bee Market, I read out loud an email to Dave that I had received from a sweet reader. The kids were already busy in the back seat picking out and setting in order the movies they would watch for the 9 hour drive. I started to read the email to Dave....

'Also, wanted to say that you and your family are in my prayers as Blake undergoes all of his testing and possible surgeries. In regards to your post the other day, if he does have surgery, would there be a way to send him a card? I'm sure a lot of other readers would also like to do the same thing.'

I had a hard time reading this aloud to Dave. My throat tightened and my eyes filled but as I finished the first sentence Blake piped up from the back seat. In the happiest, sweetest, bubbliest voice, he said "Tell her thank you for praying please!" And then he went on to finish his movie prioritizing. When I looked back, his eyes were sparkling, his countenance lighter. He was so happy. I didn't even know he was listening. It made my heart happy to see him so excited. Beaming to know that he had support.

And, he would love cards when surgery time comes. We will continue to keep you all posted!

Now, I'm off to unpack the trailer, do laundry, take inventory, edit pictures, edit video, and put my house back in order. Queen Bee Market was a huge success. We got home late last night. Pictures coming soon. D+A Home has very little product left. It was awesome! Happy Tuesday....it feels more like a Monday to me.

  6. They're always listening. I've learned that, quickly. :) And they especially like to tune in when we're talking about THEM. My boys always perk their ears if not their eyes as I tell others little stories about them. I see them smile when it's particularly funny.

    And your reader was right. We'd all love to send him some good cheer. :) Happy turkey eating and whatnot during this holiday week.

I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
