Our youngest daughter and I are both still waiting, maybe a little impatiently, for our arrivals. Nickie is awaiting the birth of her second child, and I’m awaiting the publication of my second book. (Okay, she’s not waiting anymore☺)
There are lots of things we can be waiting for.
A big part of the country is waiting for a huge winter storm to go away. Here in Florida it’s windy and cold, being raised in Michigan I think it’s chilly. Thank goodness it started on Saturday and not as many people need to be out on the road.
While you are recovering from whatever the weather has brought your way here’s a little something to read. 😉
They found everything on their list they needed to get started. Mom dragged the box to the playroom from the garage and cut a hole for a door in the box for them.
“Thanks, Mom. You’re the best. We’ll finish the rest. Can we cut a picture from a magazine?” Daniel laid his hand on the box.
“Sure.” Mom put down the scissors for them to use. “The magazines are in the basket in the living room. Call me if you need any more help.”
“What do we do now, Daniel?” asked Sarah.
“You get a picture that looks like something we could be flying over from a magazine. Mom gave us two empty spools of thread to use as dials. You can put your picture on the wall just above them. Then I’ll write the names of the people we want to see around the dials.”
Daniel called, “Mom, will you come cut the holes for the thread spools, so they can turn, please?”
“Sure. Are you going to decorate the spools?” Mom asked.
“No, I’m going to have Sarah cover the top with paper and draw an arrow on it, so we know where to turn our dial.” “That’s a great idea,” said Mom.
“How can we decorate the inside of the box?” Daniel asked. “I want it to look real cool. It’s got to look like we’re traveling through space.”
Other things you might be waiting for might be:
- School to be over
- School to start (Probably the parents)
- A boyfriend/girlfriend to call or text
- A big football game (Super bowl 50)
- A trip you have been planning
- A wedding
I pray you didn’t have damage from the winter storm. Please reply on the blog: What effect did this storm have on you? What are you waiting for?
