Good morning everyone. Starting with 2389. First thing the lump in my neck near my ear is gone. Every time I get one and it goes away I feel the bigger one to see if that has gone away too. Not yet but I still have hope.
They say we are in for some kind of superstorm today and to stay safe. Well if the internet goes down or the power goes off we won't know anything that is going on. No TV, no radio, no cell phones for this family. Most people get all upset with this sort of thing but
God will lead the storm in the path it is suppose to take. Why do I say this? Yesterday we had quite a bit to do and things were just taking way longer then they needed to not counting the two trips into each of two different stores to get two products we needed. It just didn't seem to be our day. Until that is I went in to the store to get some deals. They have boneless pork loin for .99 a lb this week with a coupon, and chicken quarters for .39 a lb. each limit of one per coupon per order.
Well while shopping I helped these ladies get theirs and went up to get mine all cut up the way we like it. The lady said how many kids do you have and I said 6. When my meat was done she asked me if I split my orders. I said sometimes but today I didn't have two set of coupons which was a bummer because we had really wanted to stock up on the pork loin. She handed me a extra set and boy did I beam from ear to ear while giving both of the ladies a great big hug, thanking them up and down.
I am always giving coupons out at the store and it was nice to get a few back for a change. I have gotten a few here and there but this was a great savings and sure helped us out. I gladly picked up another pork loin, and package of chicken putting them in my cart with a smile on my face, and a skip to my walk.
I put the other items in my cart that were on my list of specials I wanted to take advantage of and up to the cashiers. Our store has a lot of new people and there were not any I knew so I picked a young man, plus his line was the shortest. He did both of my orders with no problems, our store knows how to train people right.
Out to the van I went and put the meat in the cooler. When I got in I told Dennis all about our luck, including running into our landlord while exiting the store saving us a trip down town to pay him. We got talking and if we had not been delayed the way we were. I would have missed this lady and wouldn't have gotten in on a great deal. God know where he wants us.
When it is our time to go nothing on this Earth will stop it. Doesn't mean not to be prepared for things that may come just that if things go bad it might just have been a detour in the road that has to be fixed before you can cross it again. Nothing more, nothing less. With that said Marksville has candles, food, fellowship with each other, and God's hands on our lives. Have a good day everyone.
