May 18, 1980--ring a bell? For my family it ALWAYS does....it's the day Mt. St. Helen's erupted. We lived in the eastern part Washington state at the time, it was Sunday I was 7....I remember getting ready for church and going to the front door and my dad standing there telling my brother to go lock the doors on the car. I couldn't understand why it was so dark. My brother came back inside with what to me looked like snow on his jacket. I couldn't process that either. Then my parents explained what had happened, my mom filling the tubs & sinks with water. I remember not being able to go outside FOREVER (probably a few days) But when you did go outside you had to wear a mask. It sure made me realize even then that Heavenly Father's hand is in ALL things.
I got a jury summons, I had to call Friday if I had to go in today. The number eliminated some groups but then I had to call again today, LUCKILY I didn't have to go! I was trying to figure out how I was going to get to every one's parties and things (this is the kiddos last week of school). Now I don't have to worry! DH was sweet enough to work from home today 'just in case'. Prayers are answered!
So, I tried out for my little shoebox. there were 400 applicants, I didn't make it. BUT I LOVE this layout I did for it!
