Our family is incredibly blessed.
There are probably hundreds of things I could list off.... nothing of which have to do with us... just the fact that people are caring, loving and thoughtful towards us. It is truly amazing and I am grateful for each one of you. Even if I don't know exactly who you are................
You knew this was leading into a story, right?!?
Earlier this evening, I was finishing up dishes from dinner and preparing lunch for tomorrow. ( We are having Runzas for lunch, if anyone is interested. ) The children were at the kitchen table playing with Legos. All of a sudden, the doorbell rings... *ding,dong*.....
If you've ever stopped by to our house before, you know what follows.
A thundering herd of children race to the door to see who can be the first to open it!
Surprisingly, NO ONE WAS THERE!!!
However, there was a lovely gift left on the front porch with a nice card attached, telling us "Merry Christmas".
The lovely gift I am talking about is (drum roll please).....
A brand spanking new Dyson DC33 vacuum !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, this person obviously knows how terrible our old vacuum is. Also, they must know how yucky our carpets look. They also know that I've been debating over a new vacuum for a long, long time but just couldn't justify buying a good vacuum when other things always needed our attention. You know, like braces and food for the kids and stuff. And, obviously, they had on a good pair of running shoes and are fairly fast runners because my children don't waste time getting to the door once the bell sounds.
So, thank you mysterious gift giver. We have already vacuumed all the carpets in the house and have been grossed out by all the dirt this vacuum sucks up and by just how much dirt was left behind by our old one. We will definitely put this vacuum to good use.
