Came home from work on Monday with a Veteran's notice on the door that they would be picking up in our neighborhood… I hadn’t used them before so since I had a whole bunch of donations piling up in the hallway, I thought I would bag up all the clothes for them…

After picture with all the clothes missing…

Four bags of clothes… put the bags out Tuesday morning, they said on the flyer that they would pick up between 8 and 4, which they did… I didn’t have to do anything, just put out the bags…

DIL graduated from beauty school tonight after two years of going five nights a week and all day Saturday on top of her full time job… so we decorated their front door to surprise her when she gets home tonight…

I have made brownies for dessert and back packs are all ready for school again tomorrow…

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

not everything in life can be known.

Stop seeking all the answers, relax, and enjoy the ride into the unknown.

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

sometimes you need to let go.

Yes, it hurts when the things or the people we love are taken from us. Make your peace with loss. Nothing lasts forever. Like the trees in autumn, you too must learn to shed your attachments and start afresh.

 

Tonight

Your boys all look so very grown up, even the youngest one now. Sure hope they all have a great school year!

That is so cute that you got pictures of all three boys:)
Yes, it is nice to just set the bags out and have them come and pick them up..makes it so much easier to put the stuff to good use..
Love that you decorated for your DIL..I'm sure she appreciated it..
Enjoy your vacation,
Sheri

Hey Lady, Always love reading your posts, an the boys are growing up so handsome! Glad you were able to help others with the donations. They are banging the drum at work towards a food drive for the DC area because food banks are so low right now. Everyone is hurting. Hope you have a wonderful week! See you on FB! :-)
