While laying with down with Jaden for bed – someone fired up their snow blower. I laid there, watching the clock and thought to myself “who the heck snowblows at almost 9pm?” I was cleverly drafting what my sassy Tweet would be … something like “Who snowblows at 9pm on a school night? Rude or necessary during a snow storm? #letsdiscuss #Don’tMessWithBedtime”
I came into the family room and caught something between the blinds. Is someone outside my house? I took a peek and sure enough, my neighbor was snow blowing MY driveway! That’s why it was so loud haha! Gosh – did I feel bad about my sassy almost-tweet. Doug has been traveling all week and he was trying to do be a HUGE favor. I’m sure he saw my un-shoveled driveway all week and watched as the triplets and I tried to shovel this morning before the big snow tonight. Logan kept getting stuck in the snow while trying to ride his bike. Weston spent more time eating snow and I spent more time making sure he stayed away from the yellow and brown snow than I actually shoveled. We did manage to get most of it cleared before nap.
What I didn’t realize, while laying down with Jaden, was that it was my driveway that was disturbing the neighborhood. Someone was blessing me, while I laid and judged them. Isn’t there something about when you point a finger at someone else, you’ve got three pointing back at you?
It was a gentle reminder to not judge … Have you been caught with your foot in your mouth? Or judging someone while they were trying to bless you? Share your story – I’d love to hear them!
there was this one person who read my blog and I totally thought she was a 60 year old woman…turns out she wasn’t and is awesome (;
True story …
I love this story. What a message that we can all learn from. Thanks!
