"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

For the last two and a half months we have been without a dryer. There is so many loads of laundry to do that I was so behind and finally set up a line in our little backyard and started to hang dry some things. thankfully I have a mom and mother in law nice enough to do the kids clothes so that they weren't crispy from hang drying. thank you both! Well we finally got a dryer from my parents who got a new one and it's been a week and I am still trying to get caught up. you don't realize how much you use certain things until they are gone.
