It has been busy here as I'm starting to work on our impending move. We've gathered many shoes, clothes and toys to rid ourselves of. I'm debating whether to have a yard sale or donate to the local thrift store. My kids don't mind a yard sale and I'm not sure about it yet. Though it probably isn't a big deal, I feel I'd need to pray over that decision, considering how much is crowding my "plate" as it is!
So, these are the sites I’ve studied over concerning having one. They are so cool: http://www.yardsalequeen.com/yardsale.htm & http://www.vintagerevivals.com/2012/03/5-tips-for-killer-yard-sale.html I plan to read them over with the kids for Family Home Evening and we’ll have a discussion if they still want to hold one or not. If not, that’s fine, we can just donate it to the local thrift store!
My hubby has been busy working that he is exhausted by the time he gets "home" to his barracks. On his day 4 of work, I cried in prayer because of our distance as well as sparse communication. I begged the Lord to please let me feel His love for me.
When I stepped from my bedroom, my 10 year old son handed me a hand-drawn card with many hearts and words written "I love you, Mom." He also handed me a cute heart made out of his Legos. My burden immediately lifted and I pulled him into a hug.
"What brought this on, sweetie?" I smiled through my tears.
"I just thought you needed it."
Oh, yes. What great timing he has! And he didn't even know I had just been crying seconds before seeing me!
