Banging the Bowl

This morning my alarm was a banging metal bowl. In my dream it sounded as a gong a few times before I realized what it was. We have family visiting and I thought someone was playing around being loud. I went to the kitchen to ask whoever it was to quit playing around and making so much noise and lo and behold... It was my 14 year old daughter (who loves sleeping in) making pancakes for everyone. She woke up before she was called. Before me. Bless her heart! To serve the family. My heart just swells. Sometimes your kids surprise you. Sometimes you get to see that they are growing up. Sometimes they humble you. It is a wonderful thing! 

Happy Friday everyone! Have a great 4th of July!

You had me going, I was like "an alarm in summer?!" But, alas, it was sweetness of a child. What a wonderful way to start the holiday weekend :)

Sometimes that sweet service from our children is packaged in a way that might be a little jarring to our sensibilities! But precious nonetheless!
