Day 716: Baby Sitter

This really has nothing to do with today's Joyful Moment, but I haven't posted any pictures in a while, so here ya go.  I guess a screw was coming loose in the bottom of one of our chairs, so HH was tightening it.  Baby B got a hold of the screwdriver and decided to help out.  He was so happy.  It was adorable.

And a bit of a Joyful Moment, as well.

But the Joyful Moment I want to share happened this morning.

Back up.

With all of the madness going on around here, HH and I both spaced finding a baby sitter for tomorrow.  Not a big deal, it's just his work party that he's kind of in charge of.  I did try to find one earlier in the week, but she must be out of town, because she never called back.

So, last night I (somewhat frantically) called a sweet pair of sisters to see if either of them could do it.  No one answered, I left a message informing them to go ahead and call me even if it was late last night,... and they never called.

So, I fretted a bit about it while I was laying awake in bed at some point during the night.  Because now I knew I would have to wait until they were home from school to try to call again before I could know if I needed to try someone else.


But then, early this morning, the phone rang.  It was their sweet sweet mama calling to tell me that one of them was, in fact, available and could do it.

Huge sigh of relief from me, plus many gratitudes expressed to their mama for anticipating my need to get her phone call that morning.  And that was today's Joyful Moment.

The End.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that remove all sorts of stress from your life!

I love when things like that happen. It sounds like you'll have a great evening tomorrow. You deserve it.

My JM was my HH coming home. I came home from working at the temple EXTREMELY tired, more than I can explain. You know. And he came home with a smile and a listening ear and some hugs. Just what I needed.

Love you.
