Disasters and Blessings.
Our hot water heater is leaking into the garage but the plumber will be here on Monday and I trust him, totally. He usually works on weekends but he and his wife are going to a family reunion and he is taking a very needed two days off.
2. The electric service failed at 3:30 this morning but thankfully it went back on at 5:30. When I tried to call, they told me there was a 30 minute wait time for an operator so I knew they were aware of it. They also told me to go online. I am afraid I screamed at them and said "We have no power, dummy!" I am sure it did not do the answering machine any trauma but it eased my frustration.
3. I usually walk Jose very early and we encountered a high end
garage sale where I got a never used coach tote for fifty dollars and some lightly used Nikes in my size. Jose loves garage sales and
endeared himself to everyone there by acting like he had never had any petting or love and was anxious to endear himself to everyone.
After we h ad finished our walk, I went back to pay for my finds and they had totally fallen in love with him and sent him kind messages.
It was a good experience being around sweet and gentle people.
4. My oldest grand daughter called to tell me that after resigning her band directors job, she was through with substitute teaching and had a position as fourth grade teacher at the Kid's school which is just a block from her house. She couldn't handle having three kids and being a band director because it was such a demanding job and required a lot of work at night. she was a music major and told me that perhaps the music would come later. She really misses it. In my opinion being a teacher is almost as bad as being in the medical field but she promised to take all the necessary precautions. This way, she will have the benefits that we all sought when we worked full time. I am very proud of Sara. Ted marveled at what a lovely young woman she had become
because we remember the little girl who loved frilly dresses and make up.
