I posted about this flag a long time ago. After hanging up for about 7 years it needed to be taken down and repainted. I had everything done except the star. It had been sitting on the back porch for what seems like forever.
The Welcome sign had been hanging for a while and I have had the ladybugs for a long time. Anyone who has knowledge of China adoption would know that they are know as a sign of good luck. They were gifted to me while we waited for Megan. I 'm not sure how much good luck they might bring, but I think they are cute.
The unexpected item on the list was a new radiator for my car. Saturday evening we were on our way to the hardware store and the car was getting hot. We ended up scraping the trip to the store and headed home. When Chuck opened the hood the radiator was steaming and he could see that the steam was coming from a crack. Yikes!
We skipped church so that Chuck could get this taken care of. He looked online and found that one junk yard had one radiator that would fit the year of my car. He started working on it about 8 and didn't get it complete until almost 6. A long day and an unexpected event yes, but through it all God is good. We are grateful that it didn't happen while I was in the car pool line with kids to deal with, that we were able to find a used radiator at a reasonable price, that it happened on a weekend when my handy husband was able to take care of it. I am certainly grateful for a husband that is willing to give up his day of rest to take care of his family.
