Somedays Everything Isn't All Roses Or Even Sunflowers

I woke up a bit slower than usual this morning. As I was sauntering to the bathroom, I glanced out the window to see all the sheep eating in my garden. That was the beginning of my day. While I was preparing coffee, Michael was getting dressed for his day. He asked me where all of his jeans were at, and I truly thought they were clean. Still unable to find them, he wore dress pants to work. He asked what he had to take for lunch...uh, I hadn't thought about that. We usually have leftovers for his lunch, but last night all the food was eaten. I served him a nice breakfast bar made by Kellogg's for breakfast with a glass of water (no milk in the house) and a cup of coffee. He left for work and then came back about 10 minutes later. He had a huge smile on his face as he brought me his empty coffee cup. Inside the cup, there was nasty dishwasher residue glued to the side. He just wanted to let me know that next time maybe I should look in his cup BEFORE pouring his coffee!!! I think I should get in bed earlier tonight!!!!!!!!

grace and peace,

We must be related.:)

I love your sunflower picture.

Yesterday, when Shannon took me to the doctor, we passed our local Ag Center, and they had a couple of fields of sunflowers. They were so beautiful!
Sunflowers and daisies are such happy seeming flowers to me. They always make me smile.:)

God Bless,
Amy:)

Amy,
I agree about the sunflowers. Plus they are EASY to grow...unlike roses which make me want to pull my hair out!! By the way, I am still praying about your foot and Allie. A lot has been on your plate lately, and I am sure there are somedays you would like to throw in the towel. The Lord is faithful even during the hard times.
grace and peace,
julie

I went to work and left my handbag at home. At Home!

So, all day, when someone would ask me something, I would reply, "Gosh I don't know. I left my purse at home...I can't think today!"
