Spring is for Car Washes

It’s March, we are just about six weeks away from living in Kingman, Az for one year. One year ago I was lunching, saying good-bye and getting ready for our cross country move. I can’t believe how fast this time has gone by.

Today I am sitting at Mr. D’z, a little Diner on Route 66. It’s kind of a cheesy diner but such friendly service and cute place and they have delicious home made root beer.

I dropped my car off to get detailed and the car wash is a block away from Mr. D’z. I have to admit to the whole world, I just took the car seat out of my back seat, it has been there since my children and grand children were here for Thankgiving. Oh I can’t wait to have to put it back in! The inside of my car has not been cleaned inside since then either and there are some scrumptious treats stuck to the seats after the girls drove back from the Grand Canyon with Zoe and Carter throwing food and tempers!

We miss them terribly.

The next time they come to visit we will live on the mountain! Oh they will love the rocks and plants!

Today I am savoring the memories, looking forward to our temporary move in two weeks. Philippians 4:11-13  Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I’m thrilled that God is control and not me. I willingly surrender to His path. I’m not sure of His plan. I am thankful for this year of learning, growth, challenge and discovery. He is amazing and takes much better care of my family than I do!

It is a breezy day in Kingman and I am enjoying the spring.
