Switch to this morning: I got to school and realized there was a message on my phone. I forget to check my phone at school. As a matter of fact, I so rarely use the phone that I put it on a top shelf - as a result, I don't always notice when there is a message. Today there was a message that was a few days old. It turns out someone found his wallet near where he gets off the bus. We will be going to pick it up after school.
I was a little concerned when Peirce's prayer wasn't answered. No one wants to have their child go through feeling like God isn't listening to them. Apparently, the prayer was answered quite a while ago - his mother just didn't check voice mail!
I find this whole story comforting. I've had some prayers lately that I am stewing over. This whole experience is a good reminder that God is very well aware of us and does answer our prayers. To me, every time a prayer is answered, it's like a miracle. The timing of this one is interesting. If I had answered that voice mail immediately, it wouldn't have had the same impact it had on my own life by answering it today. It is a good reminder to me.
I am grateful.

Jill went with her friend, Elizabeth, to their grandparents farm for a but of a hike and some fun. Later she had swim practice
Peirce and his friend, Riley, went to the Talisman and played on floatables in the pool.
Allen helped someone move, had a good workout and drove Jill around.
I did some housework, laundry, and some baking and drove the boys around.
A good day for us all!
I am back in the game!! I got a treadmill this weekend. No more bad weather excuses. My goal is 30 km before the end of the month.
I am quite amazed at how quickly exercising every day makes such a difference. My knees have been hurting for a while now. I wondered if walking was a good idea. Interesting thing is now, on day 3, my knees don't hurt at all! Exercise is like the miracle cure.

Allen wanted to take Chico. I thought he was crazy. The kids were on his side. I decided to close my eyes and wave them good bye.
Apparently, he wasn't even the worst behaved chihuahua there!
There were about 10 or 12 dogs. They all got along great. The highlight was when a black lab walked by and all the chihuahuas started barking at it--you don't belong here, go away. Chico had a great time and the kids had an even better time.
