Shows You How Often We Go Out

The last week has been so crazy:

A family in our church had a small house fire that did a lot of damage and the house won't be livable again for about a year

A school near us went into lock down on Friday so our schools went into a partial lock down out of precaution

The mom of one of our pastors died

On Sunday I stepped into the building and was met with questions, texts, and emails: 

Can you please print this out and give it to pastor asap?

Do you know where I can find the other part to this wheel chair?

Do you know who moved the sound equipment in the Sanctuary?

There's a moth in the drum cage. Can you help?

Nothing like a quiet, holy morning to usher you into the presence of the Lord! πŸ˜‡


Today Beth and I ran some errands when I got off work. I finally mailed off my Legacy Box! Movies of my mom when she was growing up, me and my sisters at Disneyland in the 1960's... I hope to get it back before Diana and Peter come out for Christmas!

I asked Beth if she wanted to go to Starbucks and she reminded me that she had a gift card. "Maybe I buy yours too?" Well sure! Thanks Beth!


From there we headed to the mall to return a shirt I bought before covid. We hadn't been there in probably over a year. Wandered all around but didn't see anything we wanted so we headed over to Kohls. I bought a few face towels and 3 big bed pillows. It was fun getting those down the escalator!

Beth mentioned going to Wendy's for dinner but she wanted to eat it in the car so we drove through and listened to The Greatest Showman CD - for the second time - while we ate. 🎡And we will come back home, and we will come back home! Hoomme again!!🎡

By the time we did head home the sun was setting and she came up with a clever way to hide her eyes from the glare. πŸ˜„

We pulled into the driveway, I turned off the engine and Beth says, "That was like a road trip!"

It does sound like a "road trip". Sounds like a fun mother-daughter kind of day. So glad you could enjoy it together. I remember those kinds of days at work...although I did not attend the church where I worked, so I was spared the Sunday morning panic. They actually preferred that I not attend that church which was fine with me. I was able to have my Sundays free to worship without worrying about "work". Somehow they managed just fine. Our custodian was there for emergencies. Glad your school was fine regarding the lock down. I hope all is well in the neighborhood now. Have a blessed rest of your week.

Like a road trip...too funny. We are all a little starved for carefree times like you just experienced. Here comes October!! Hope the end of September goes well for all of you.

I love the mask over her eyes.
