You know that old saying,
"The only thing you can be sure of are death and taxes."
Well, I am here to disprove that saying. Because there are some more things I can be sure of.
If I drop the gas cap at the gas station it will ALWAYS roll under the car. Never beside the car, but UNDER the car. All the way under. Right in the middle. And I will be wearing a skirt.
If I have a new book that I have been waiting forever to read and I get settled on my swing and in giddy anticipation open the cover--someone will automatically get sick or seriously injured.
If I get the house all cleaned at the same time--no one will show up at the front door. But, if it is all falling apart at once--several people will come knocking.
My four children will not even know I am on the planet until I get settled into a long phone discussion with Rebekah. And then, just as we are about to solve one of the big world problems, all four children will need me for something. I think the cell phone emits a sound wave or something that attracts children to me when it is put up to my ear.
And of course, the one that all moms know...
No one will need me until I go to the bathroom. And then everyone needs me. Right then.
So, what are some things you are sure of.....
