Now--This WAS a SURPRISE!!!

First, I want to thank everyone who left a comment yesterday and today. It was encouraging to read that I'm heading in the right direction in regards to my co-worker. She was doing this again today, and I just walked away and said a prayer for her. She has been reported by several others--nothing is being done about this--so, I'm just going to continue to pray for her.

Now, today is rather interesting. I came home from work, and believe it or not, my son cleaned for me today. I didn't get to this last weekend because of feeling so lousy and have kind of just let the cleaning process go until this weekend.

But, he was off work today because he is working on the weekend. What a wonderful surprise when I walked in the door and everything was just "sparkle clean"!!

I gave him a big hug and thanked him for doing this for me. He said the he knew I had other things I would rather be doing over this coming weekend, so he thought he would do this for me. What a wonderful son!!! And this is the same son (since I only have one!) that usually grumbles when I ask him to take the trash out!!

So, this weekend I'll only have to catch up on the laundry (again--what is it about laundry--it just never stops!!) and be free to do whatever I choose!! Which is, of course, listening to some music and knitting away!! Maybe, I'll even get back to the socks that Miles destroyed. The name of this pattern for these socks is actually "Summer Breeze", but in my case they are going to be called
"Miles-a-Thon". He truly was having his own little Olympic challenge, and he won!!

I'm also thinking of redoing my blog if I can figure out the instructions Tea sent me on adding a new header with a picture I already have in mind. We'll have to see how that goes!!

If you come back Monday and everything still looks the same, then you'll know that I'm just not that computer literate.

K--that's all for a while!!

Well if you figure it out I'll be asking you for help. I have been wanting to change a few things on my blog too, mainly getting a 3 column layout. I even found the instructions, sort of, but still can't figure it out.

I hope to see a new blog scheme on Monday

PS hug your son for me, that was very nice

That's really sweet! My son offered to make dinner one night (home from college for the summer) and it was a treat. They turn out okay!

That is so sweet and thoughtful of you son! Thank God for more time this weekends to do things that you like. Thank God too for guiding you regarding your co-worker. The Lord knows our needs :) May you have a restful and enjoyable week and weekends. Take care!

Oh yes, do come and join us at Thankful Thursday, if you can, Beth! I have been greatly blessed since I join Thankful Thursday. It helps me to count my blessings and to be thankful always. I am greatly blessed and encouraged by God's goodness to all in the thankful posts I read. Thanks again for visiting me and your kind words of encouragement. God bless you always!

Hope my sons grow up to be that sweet! I have to reward them with stickers to get em to help out. :)

And I know what you mean about laundry! I'm still doin good though... my basket is empty right now. We'll see how long I can keep it up. With the cloth diapering though, I kinda HAVE to stay on top of it all. Otherwise, yuck!
