Things You Should Already Know at 38....

I learned three lessons this week. They are very serious and take a lot of depth. It is obvious why they didn't occur to me before...they are that deep.

1. When painting a wall and using paint already in the house, do NOT assume the color that you are using is the left over ceiling paint. Temper your excitement at not having to tape the ceiling and color test.
2. When painting your toenails quickly before Church and the label states it dries in 60 seconds...do not believe it dries in less than 30 minutes. Do NOT put your socks on (because your cat was rubbing on your sandal, it now smells weird, and you have to switch to boots) and expect your socks to come off after Church without some tugging and ripping because they sealed to your toenails.
3. Always remember when you drop the END of your detail paint brush in the actual paint before sticking it in your mouth (since you use that as an extra hand). F.Y.I. Acrylic paint does not taste good.

These are important lessons in life and if you don't learn them there are dire consequences, the least of which is a blue mouth.


  1. thanks for sharing these lessons with me! :) I need all the help I can get :)

  2. Umm, good lessons. :) I love reading other Ethiopian adoption blogs. Fun to remember where we were in life three years ago.


In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
