How many times did I sit down to say hello?

I don't even know, it's hard to keep track after fifteen.  For some reason, the phone and my darling daughter had other plans for me.  I even had more time at home today as we did not make it to CBS this morning.   Anyway, I'm here now.

Hannah's tooth site is healing beautifully.  Her dental office called today to check on her and see if she was doing okay. And the tooth fairy came to take her tooth so that it can be turned into dream dust.  I never knew that, Hannah informed me of the fate of all teeth.  Hannah said "Look what the tooth fairy left! And I can't find my tooth anywhere!"  I guess she searched for it.  She ended up not using the newly made tooth pillow for she was afraid the fairy would not be able to find it in the little pocket.

Here's something I learned today.  Yesterday, my kitchen was disaster zone class D kitchen.  YUCK YUCK! I was also disaster zone class D attitude.  No way was I able to get the kitchen cleaned and tidied.  And then I felt that little tug that said "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" and yet I found myself vegged out in front of the TV.  Today, that same kitchen with the addition of a few more dishes from breakfast was not that big of a deal.  So what I learned was: yes, I can do all things, but they may very well not get done that instant.  I know that it was the grace of God that allowed me to be home and able to clean the kitchen today, because my strength/desire was wanting to veg out on the couch the rest of the day.  God accomplishes far more with me when I agree to listen to his rhythm and take the time to not only rest, but to work as well. 
By the way, I was also able to get the dead stuff out of our garden beds today and spend some time in the sun.  Not trying to force things to happen because they are supposed to be done is a valuable lesson indeed.
