This Week's God Story

Last night after arriving home from choir practice I plopped my exhausted body on the couch and grabbed my computer so I could check our schedule for today before I went to change and crawl into bed.    After jotting down the address for where Big Guy's communication class had been moved to, I started closing down tabs when something caught my eye on facebook.    The headline said this:

"If you ate at the McDonald's on McFarland Drive between February 28th and March 14th, please be vaccinated for Hepatitis A before March 30."

Wait... What?   Quick check of the calendar confirmed my fears.  We had visited that McDonald's when we were driving to Atlanta for Spring Break.   

At first I could not believe it, but then I realized what an amazing God thing it was for me to even see this news headline.   This was a restaurant we ate at in Alabama.  Two weeks ago!  I do not read Alabama newspapers.  However, God provided the link through Facebook so I could see it and get my boys and I vaccinated.  

Now the boys were not excited when I woke them this morning and told them that we had to start the day with shots (and then another one in six months); however, even they realized what an amazing God story this is for our week!

Things That Would Only Happen To Me

My boys consider it a "code red" emergency when there is no milk in the house so I ran to the grocery store last night.    Sometimes I feel like I need to move next door to my friend, Japanese Redneck, and let her teach me how to have a cow to milk we go through so much of it! 

Anyway, since I was there I was walking up and down the aisles grabbing a few other items that we needed as well.    The boys and I are going to be out of town next week and I wanted to make sure hubs has plenty to eat while we are gone.

I walked around the corner and there was a man leaning over his buggy, coughing and very red in the face.    I asked him if I could get him some water or something.

He took a deep breath and said, "No thanks.  Mouth to mouth will do just fine."

Ummm.  Ummm.    I just kept on walking and I heard him say, "What?  You are just going to let me die here?"
