Perfect Timing

God's timing is always perfect and that truth once again played out in our lives. As I mentioned before, my mom, "Grandmother" and my grandmother, "Ivey" came to visit us for the week. We had not seen them since Christmas, so it was a welcomed time. They arrived on Saturday just shortly after Griffin, Tate and I had just come home from Chuck-E-Cheese. We went there to spend some time with our Community Group's "adopted family" It was such a joy to see LaKeisha and her family having fun and experiencing something new. It was also new for Griffin, so that was a bonus. The unwelcomed bonus from that trip came 2 days later arriving in the form of snotty noses, and for me, strep throat. Not so fun, but as I mentioned earlier, God's timing is perfect..even amidst strep throat, why, because mom had come to town and was able to care for all of us . This was great becasue it allowed Chad to keep up with his work. As always, Mom was amazing! She served us so HARD. She cooked, cleaned, stocked the refrig (she insists that I keep it way tooooo bare), sewed some curtains and chair backs for the boys, read books, rocked Tate, played dinosaurs and cars nonstop, and took the time to fix Chad a birthday dinner and dessert, Chocolate Meringue Pie. (Those who know me well know that's a luxury for him :-)) Mom also insisted that Chad and I go out, so we went out for a lunch date yesterday and got to visit a friend at the hospital. Please take a moment to pray for this young man. He had brain surgery on Monday to remove a tumor they found last week...once again..God's timing is perfect every time!!!
