Moving In Day

Even though we have been in our house for 2.5 weeks, we are finally getting all of our household goods! Of course, there have been a few broken items (our bed frame and patio table have me the most upset) but Patrick keeps reminding me they are just things. It is great to get our stuff again. Our couches. Our wine glasses. Our toys. But it is still a stressful situaion for me to be in. Patrick has to work all day and I am here alone to do this. Luckily, I have a friend who is watching the kids (thanks Amy) so they are not in the way yet.

I love when something serendipitous happens. As I look at the boxes upon boxes of things we need to unload and unpack, I choose one to start with and got the best surprise when I opened it. It actually made me cry (and will make the special person who knows about this also cry). One of those jokes between friends that only can be understood by them. And will ALWAYS bring a smile to my face!!! Right on top of everything, was "the blue plate". I knew this was a sign from God that things were good, and that no matter how far away I am, I will always have friends watching out for me :-)

But then after that box, I looked around and was not so happy anymore...this is going to take AGES!!! I wish my friends were here now to help me!!!!

I laugh every time I see it. It really is an ugly plate but great for the kids and microwave, etc.
Glad you found it so soon!!!
