Generosity and Good Luck

This has been a pretty amazing week for us.

First, my mom and step=dad gave our son their 10 year old Taurus. That moves him up 6 years from his last vehicle. They even took him to change the license and paid for it. Wow. We just need to get it on our insurance, which I think I can do today.

Then my good friend Chris emailed me. She'd gotten a second set of conference CDs as a gift and wanted to know if I wanted. YES!! They arrived yesterday and are all ready to mount on my iPod when the dh gets home with it.

Yesterday I won a book about the series Angel from Smart Pop Books on Twitter.

And last night was the icing on the cake. We went to the boy's girlfriend's very first art show. It's a gallery in an old house, and she had three paintings displayed with all this other art. It was really incredible---poetry readings, a band, ice sculptors doing their thing, free food and drink. When we walked in, the young lady at the door asked us if we wanted to buy raffle tickets for a sculpture done by one of the men who would later be ice sculpting. It was a dolphin carved of mesquite, and the dh bought two tickets.

He was getting bitten by mosquitos, and he had to work this AM, so we left before the drawing. I texted the boy around 10 and told him I was going to bed. He texted back for me to stay up, they were on their way and it would be worth it. I didn't say anything to the dh, and when the boy came in, he told his dad he needed help with something.


Now, this picture doesn't show how big it is. It's about four feet tall and too heavy for me to move. They put it in the guest room because they're afraid the cats will scratch it. I told the dh I'm redoing the house in a beach theme. When I find a good home for it, I'll post a new picture.

What good luck has come your way lately? Do you ever worry you'll use it all up?
