Well, the spring home tour is only two days away.
And come hell or high water, the show must go on! I was just telling myself that yesterday as I was brought to the hospital for an emergency ultrasound after waking up with a knee so swollen I could barely walk. My doctor wanted to rule out a blood clot. They did. Thank God. It's just a big, ol' swollen knee cap. But aint no swollen knee cap going to keep this girl down! Well, technically, I am down as I'm on ice and crutches. But God has blessed me with two amazing parents who hopped in their car this morning in Arizona and are headed here to help me get ready for the big day. Gotta love those two!
Well, thankfully, it's not 104 degrees anymore. My hydrangeas were wilting terribly last week and I was almost crying. I had Jake go out in the backyard for me every night and water them. About an hour later, we'd both look at them and I'd say, "Look! You saved their lives!" Their leaves perked right back up after a big hit of water. My hero!
As I've been adding the final touches to things here and there, I've been praying that you see God in our homes. That you feel His warmth. That you're encouraged to draw closer to Him. That, my friends, is worth driving to the Do-It Center one too many times and hobbling around on crutches.
So, the weather report calls for a beautiful 72 degree day on Saturday. Perfect. (As it looks now, I could put my fireplace on!) But I trust it will be a beautiful day. Susan, Laurie and I can't wait to see old friends and make new ones.

See you on Saturday!
