The Lucky Day and a Few Other Things

Cards and notes still trickle's nice. The other day I was shocked to find, tucked into a card, the gift of a massage and recommendation for the movie The Hundred Foot Journey. Fifteen minutes later I had an appointment for a massage. I had been wanting one since May but just kept putting it off. The bad news is that I can't get in until next month.....let's all pray for a cancellation before then. I am going to see the movie tomorrow. Yes, that was a lucky day!!!

A couple of weeks ago I got my first passport :-) I was going to get it 5 years ago, before the cost increased....but I kept putting that off also. Next year I am ready to go on a trip, I don't know where or with whom, but I'll be ready for it! Since I'm retired I am able to go on short notice.

The way God puts the items I'm looking for, at the thrift store, right in front of me is so amazing. Our 9 year old grandson is here almost every weekend and is growing like a weed. Ever since he was born I've always had everything here for him, his parents were struggling and it was one way I could help. I keep extra clothing here for him so they never have to bring a thing. School has started and it's gotten chilly and I didn't have one pair of decent pants here for him. He goes to church and Sunday school so I try to have him dress in good clothes. One day I went to 2 thrift stores and found 4 pairs of pants for him, now we're set! Nice, eh???

Thanks for stopping by, hope your week is off to a good start!
I't cool and gloomy here, but the weatherman is predicting sun and warmer temps by week's end.


  1. I love how God blesses people in different ways! I am like you - I find EXACTLY what I need at thrift stores! It is incredible!! I have my passport! We went to Scotland a few years back when Amber and Mike lived there for a year. Not sure I really want to leave the country in these difficult times. I am a little frightened at the thought. Although Canada might be nice!

  2. I wish that would happen to me at thrift stores. Sometimes it does.
