Look who walked in my door Sunday morning. I should say Sunday afternoon, as it was...after noon. I was in my pjs baking cookies and listening to some sweet tunes in the kitchen when the doorbell rang. My heart sinks. I'm thinking, that's the little kid that sometimes visits his grandparents next door and I'm going to have to make up a fat excuse why John can't come out to play. I won't be able to say the truth, "John is about 10 years older than you and an entire lifetime occurs between 18 and 8. No, he doesn't want to ride skateboards."
I'm wiping my hands on the way to the door thinking about how Mike is still snug in his bed because our Pastor called off church for snowstorm 2008 and I wonder what I will say if it's somebody looking for him, "Yes, I know it's after noon, but Mike is still asleep. I can't explain that to you, whoever you are, it's something that just happens, okay?"
I open the door and there stands David, Sharliss and Miss Katherine Jane Arnold looking bright and shiny all dressed up for Grandma Nancy's retirement party from the Powder Springs City Council. We don't get to see them much since they moved off to Nashville. Well, you could've knocked me over with a feather. Doesn't KJ's hair look adorable?! It's growing all back and everything. She's come a long way baby. You will notice that I am not in the photo, that was on purpose. I did wake up Mike so he could get some hugs. It was a really good surprise.
