Home Keeping: Black Iron Daybed

It was quite a day Monday.  It had all the earmarks of crazy on it, with two stray dogs (a momma and older pup) pestering our chickens to running out of gas (while taking Rachel to work), thankfully close to home.  A friend was able to help us out quickly and we were on our way!

On the way home, I stopped by our local thrift store as the sign said, "All Books 50% Off!"  That's the siren call at our house!

They didn't have many books that I was interested in but as I browsed around I spotted a black iron daybed.  The price was great.  I shot a photo to Tim and to Sarah (who has been in need of a frame for her twin bed).  I got a thumbs up from both of them, and Nate who was just home from work was able to swing by and give me a hand bringing it home.

It looks great in her room and my romantic hearted girl loves it!

The day ended well.  Our friend Denny brought dinner which was a win-win for me as I didn't have to cook, thus helping to keep the house cooler!

I'm thankful for how the day was redeemed by these gifts - the great find at the thrift store, my awesome son who was so willing to help me after he'd spent a long day at work, and a friend who brought dinner.  God's hand was on the whole day. He never leaves me nor forsakes me.
