If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you probably already know what happened to me yesterday. I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood around 10:30 in the morning. I grabbed the keys, locked the door and headed out. About 30 minutes later, I get back to the house, open the storm door, and immediately realize that the key I took wasn't going to work because Pappy had changed out the door lock and hadn't replaced the old key yet.
I was locked out of the house.
Jess teaches a co-op class on Tuesday's so I couldn't call her. Pappy had gone to work and then to a doctor's appointment, so he couldn't come let me in. I sat down on the front porch and pouted for a little bit, then decided that wasn't gonna be very productive so I got up, went to the back porch where we keep a lot of our gardening supplies and mixed up 2 gallon of weed/brush killer. After I sprayed all of that, I decided to push mow the yard.
My Mom would never commit to anything when I was growing up, instead she would say "if I live and nothing happens". I couldn't understand why she wouldn't just say a simple yes or no. I came across a verse of scripture several years ago that reminded me of her and realized she had the right attitude all along.
the lawn mower and weed killer were where I could get to them.
I got lots of exercise.....
(just ask my joints).
It was a beautiful day.
The yard is mowed for the week.
And, Pappy came home earlier than I had expected.
Thank you, Lord, for showing me the "bright" side.
HOPE everybody has a wonderful Wednesday!
