Thanks Lord

Mr. Not So Handy Man here... thanking the Lord for His grace. I replaced the motor on the dishwasher. Minimal hassles, no real extra surprises, had patience to deal with small spaces... & it seems to be working - no leaks or nuthin' ;-)

Thanks Lord & Robin for helping / praying

I respect those who do this kind of a thing for a living. We would starve if I had to.

Braggin' on My Bro & His Wife

My brother Kevin & his wife Kathy have come for a visit - us & Mom. He is doing a stand up job of taking care of Mom's affairs, house, business...

Kathy made a great statement about marriage. One of her / their kids - all adults now asked her if she ever tired of Dad (Kevin)? She said "yes, but she was sure he got tired of her too. Welcome to the real world of marriage." SUCH honest, uncommon wisdom. Working through, waiting out those times is often all that separates broken & surviving / thriving marriages.
