Home Again, Home Again, Giggety Gig

Another gift from God and a lesson in trusting Him and not stressing over things.

I was so stressed out about getting home on Friday, getting the grad gift figured out, found, and purchased, and all the other little things that needed done so that we could get to Baker on time and relax and enjoy the weekend there.

I wish I was able to control my emotions better and not stress and get worried about that sort of thing because I know God will take care of it, and everything will get done, and if it doesn't get done its not that big of a deal.

Anyway, God let me stress a little and then took over (prooving a point to me) and things have just fallen into place even better than I thought they would.

For starters we didn't have to sit in Idaho for a day. Mark, the broker, found a load of fertilizer that delivered in North Dakota this morning and now we're on our way to reload corn in Steele. We'll be home tonight, and in the morning we'll dump the corn off at a feed lot 5 miles from our house. How much closer could he have gotten us? (well there is a feed lot TWO miles from the house, but I'll settle for what we got)

Then yesterday I contacted my hair girl, who is a doll and has become a friend, and asked her for ideas about a grad gift, because my sister-in-law is going to cosmetology school and is going into that line of work. Not only did my hair girl have a great idea, she is going to pick it up for me, getting it at her cost, and all I have to do is swing by her shop to get it before we leave.

And not exactly in sink with the story, but still taking stress off my mind...our April trip sheets were due in to the prorate office in Billings the first week of May, but I haven't been able to get to a post office. Last night we passed through Billings and were able to swing by their office and drop the packet into their mail drop slot. So that's delivered, and I think before the Oregon fuel taxes are due this month so I might still be on time...sort of! That was a load off my mind too!

So...home agian, home again, giggety gig... a day earlier than planned and now with one less thing to do! Hope you all have a great weekend and I'll be in touch sometime next week.

I'm leaving you with a picture from last evening. It drizzled rain all day in Idaho, but last night just north of Idaho Falls, the clouds broke and the sunlight hit the rain clouds. It always makes them look so much more dramatic and threatening...and beautiful when it does that!

The contrast against the grey clouds makes the grass, concrete and other vegetation so brilliant.
