[Dale would croak if he knew I put this pic on here...]
When lawn care came to an end last fall we thought we knew how our schedule would be come spring. My nephew would be helping with the lawn route, the man that had been helping was too expensive for us to keep long term...
If we would have known then what we know now... All we would have done is worry!
First of all my nephew was able to get a full time job with a new business starting up in the area & we were happy to see him get that job. We weren't really worried about who would help Dale now, because surely some young guy will want a summer job... What did give us cause for concern was when we learned that the former employee was starting his own route & had contacted some of the Sunset customers asking if they want to use him... [There is much more to be said about that one] Then we were really getting concerned, we did through around the possibility that Dale would maybe be able to just do the route himself & not have to hire a helper, but we still thought it was too much work for one person. Then in March another of his GOOD customers notifies him that they had taken some bids & have decided to go with someone else. [This was 4 lawns...] Gulp! Okay by now Dale was serious about doing it on his own & the more he thought about it the better he liked it.:)
As of today he is working by himself, things are going farely well. He has picked up enough new clients that we will be doing fine without the ones that were lost.
My point is... Plans... Sometimes God has a better plan for us but it takes some hard times to see it!
My plans for today were to go to a wedding. I love weddings, you guessed it! I had to change my plans, my children were way to sick to be hauled off to wedding & this virus is so contagious I would have gotten a lot of other people sick if I would have kept my plans. My daughter went instead & told me all about the wedding. It was almost as fun listening to her glow about the wedding as it would have been to be there... Almost not quite... Ashlyn was totally beat out about missing it when she heard about the candy table! Tonight while I was bathing Sierra she told me she thinks she will just run away to that place & get some of that candy for her & me.:) BTW Briana did remember her siblings & brought a piece for everyone.
There will be more weddings to be enjoyed. This sickness will leave us soon...
