I am so thankful for the Lords unconditional love, and grace, my family and wonderful friends. I am so thankful for pools, smoothies and ice machines in the heat and the sound of laughter. Ok speaking heart to heart on laughter this is serious folks... my friend Lee asked why I haven't blogged about her?
Like she pointed out I did blab as she put it about my other friends but not her. Well I hope you don't mind.. but had to tell you I am so grateful for friends that are different then us, that stand up for us , make us proud and well put smiles on our faces. About my friend Lee .Once upon a time.. is anyone there ? Well dear friends one day Lee had a beautiful birthday party for her daughter at the park . You know the kind with all the balloons , games , prizes the works. I am here to tell you it was quite lovely. But....she went the extra mile and had everyone under the sun invited. I was assigned head chauffeur and picked up some of the kids and brought some home. After a hectic day and well quite frankly a headache . I loaded up the charges in my van, so did Sue, Jen and well you get the picture. So I drop off all the kids I knew , had little chats with moms and dads as we pulled in their driveways ,and set to go home with my children. When I realize I have one child left. "Um who are you and where do you live?" I found myself asking trying not to panic and quite proud of myself.
"For 25.00 I will tell you" comes the reply ..
Whatttt.... Well I drive as fast as a van will drive at the time and make it back to the park where Lee is cleaning up. I present her with my problem and she says "well where did you get her"?
Well Mary Sunshine where do you think? The dollar store? So we both turn to this little pleasant child and she tells us its now 30.00. Well Lee tells her she is not going to stand for this, gets a real mean mom face when all I could do was want to cry and bemoan my situation to anyone at the park who would listen and tells the girl she is marching her to the police . Well the girl gave the info Lee marched her to the door without my 30.00 I might add and has been my hero ever since. By the way if there is anyone left forgot to tell you she was a little girl who lived near the park ( was not invited to the party) and is probably a negotiator today.
Thank goodness this happened years ago or you know where I would be .
May the Lord bless you with laughter and love this week. Thank you for visiting.
