The girls and I don't watch much tv. We're regular visitors to Elmo's World on Sesame Street. We occasionally enjoy Paula's Home Cooking. Most of the time, however, we enjoy playing without the distraction of television. So we were having fun stacking blocks, blissfully unaware that a tornado was touching down less than two miles away! One of my girlfriends called with the horrifying news. So off we scooted to the girls room with snacks in hand to wait out the storm. Thankfully, everything was ok but I scolded myself all evening for not having a weather radio... and researched them online hoping to find the perfect and simple radio to meet our needs (I don't do well with lots of buttons). I couldn't find one priced to fit in our budget.
Today I was on a solo mission to a doctor's appointment and hopped into a local thrift store. Love thrifting! As I was checking out, one of the workers was asking where to place a weather radio that just came in... brand new... with instructions... priced at $5! I placed my money on the counter and said with a waver in my voice "No need to put it out... I'll take it!" I'm so glad that You hold my future in Your hands. Thank you for the tiny miracles that You place in my path each and every day, Lord.
