Have you ever started your day and nothing seems to go right? Well that is how my day started. Derrik came up and said that he had no hot water. I told him to use ours and then came to find out that we had no hot water or water coming out of our taps. Call me spoiled! I like hot running water in the morning.
I tried to call Jed and he did not answer his phone. That just went along with my day. So I jumped on the computer and looked it up to find out that it was most likely "our hot water heater" was frozen. Oh yea.
Jed finally called me back and told me what I needed to do. I got a heater and put it out side (oh yea....I did say out side) on top of our water heater and closed it up.
Did I tell you that it got to -3 out here last night?
I turned on the hot water in the house, well no water was running so it was like off and went in to feel sorry for my self. You know, one of those HEAVENLY FATHER, PLEASE HELP ME! moments that I have had so many times .....(by the way, this is not our water heater...I got it off of flickr to make it a little more dramatic)
And right at that moment.......I heard water running, yes out of the faucet. It was almost like He was sitting and waiting for me to ask Him for help. No pipes burst! Everything was fine. Oh how grateful I am and then.....a hot bath - yeah! But then it kept coming, almost like He was reminding me that He is very mindful of what we are going through at this time. I got to talk to my 'best friend' from school (Cyprus) who just got sent away. I get way too attached to those stinkin kids at school.....but that story is for another day.
Some sweet people came over and gave Derrik and his family Christmas. Tysen was so excited to see Santa.
He got to look inside his stocking.
Tysen ran up and gave Santa a big hug.
He was so excited when he pulled out the toothpaste. I know this is blurry but I had to add it. He had just ran out. Amazing how things like that are a great gift after having to buy it with your own money.
