I was quite busy and preoccupied with packing for our trip all morning when I finally shut the garage door around 2:30 in the afternoon. Eight kids in my van, John had six in the Expedition. I backed down the driveway still processing everything in my head. From Alex's medicines, to our white elephant gift for small group on Sunday I was pretty certain that I remembered everything.
Well almost. A nice cold diet pepsi would have sure been nice at that moment. I contemplated opening back up the garage when I looked down at my cup holder and saw a diet pepsi in its place. What a pleasant surprise. My sweet Rachel had placed one there for me.
I smiled and thanked her and got teary-eyed by how well my daughter knows me.
I couldn't help but thank God for using my daughter to show me that even the small details do not go unnoticed.
Through tons of traffic and rain we made it here safe and sound. We enjoyed a nice dinner, heard Andrew play Christmas songs, and went out and visited with some friends. How nice it is to be back here even if just for the weekend.
