~Surprises Come In Big Packages and Small Ones~

It has been a long hard week! My sweet hubby has been out of town all week for his job. I got sick again this week with bronchitis and Tyler came down with a sinus infection. Yikes!

Today...there was the light at the end of the tunnel cause my honey was coming home. I called him when I was on my way to the office that I work for (45 minutes away) to pick up my work and my paycheck (can you say...yeah!) when I tried to call my hubby again to see if he had landed yet.

He went with his boss and another co-worker to school several hours away but his boss has his own plane and is a, they flew. Now, I'm not a huge fan of flying in a jet much less anything smaller than, I was nervous because this is the first time that he has flown with his boss.

You see, I haven't thought about this in a long time...until this week. But, I believe that what goes up...must come down. I just want it to come down in the manner it was intended to. I have a "slight" fear of flying because 16 days before my 21st birthday...I crashed in a helicopter. Since then...I really prefer my feet to stay on the ground but I do fly from time to time. However, I am a big time "white knuckle" flyer on take offs and landings. :) The enemy tried to mess with my head this week, however, there is nothing that God and I can't handle together. That must have come as a surprise to the enemy this week because he wasn't able to get me all worked up. Surprise #1.

So, my second surprise hubby answered his cell phone when I called, was safely on the ground again and coming home. And, my final surprise (#3) was sweet and has made me smile all night.

I have this amazing, sweet, giving and ever so talented bloggy sister named Angie who sent me a goodie package of her homemade, organic soaps.

When I pulled into my driveway...I saw a box sitting outside of my garage. I immediately knew who it was from and couldn't wait to open it.

Can I tell you...oh, my goodness...they smell wonderful and I can't wait to try them.

Oh, Angie...I love the lip balm!!! Thank you so very, very much for my sweet package. I will pamper myself and hide them so the guys don't get into them. lol and having my hubby coming home tonight....was a sweet closure to a rough week.

I just LOVE surprises.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
