I noticed something yesterday.
This all happened within 24 hours.
First, McKenna called from Oregon where she is trying to find an apartment for them.
She called Dennis to go over the possibilities between one in Tualatin, and one in Tigard.
When he hung up he was beaming. Not just smiling, but beaming.
And he said, "I guess she just wanted to check in with me." He LOVES that.
Then, we found a message on our answering machine from my brother Scott
letting us know that their son Tanner got his mission call to Australia!
I didn't even ask him to call me, but he did! Really made me happy.
Like he knows I would want to know.
Like I am important enough to him to share his news with me....
rather than just hear it on Facebook, or through the rest of the family.
A woman I visit teach called to tell me she is going to be having cataract surgery.
She said, "I just wanted to let you know. I didn't want you hearing it from someone else."
Again, I felt honored she would want me to know.
I told Dennis and he said, "Well wasn't that so nice of her to call you."
He gets it too.
I also found an email from a close friend of mine letting me know
that her husband came through just fine with a medical procedure he had done that day.
Again, I don't think I asked her to let me know, but she just did.
And I did want to know.
One of my sons called Dennis to go over some school decisions with him.
He always feels honored when this happens.
They had gone earlier in the month, but she wanted us to see this special picture.
Also looks like his teethies are sprouting.
We hear from other members of our family on different days.
