Yesterday morning just as I was getting home from dropping Billy at school my next door neighbours friend met me in my drive way. She had a bag of goodies for us. A toy and some really good quality clothes. She was going to give them to her nephew but they have done a runner from unpaid bills etc. So she thought of us and blessed us instead. I gave her a big hug and Daniel spent all yesterday morning playing with his new toy.

For the last month or so I have been washing my laundry once a week at a laundromat. My washing machine is broken. Its not so bad. I can get 4 loads of washing done in 4 washing machines in 1/2 an hour for $NZ16. However I have been doing it on what is my busiest day of the week (Thursday) already which just makes it even busier. Well yesterday my wonderful next door neighbour came over for a visit and we were talking about the windy windy weather.

I said “I hope its like this tomorrow it will be good for my washing to dry”

and she said “use my machine and do it this afternoon. ”

She doesnt want anything for it (but I might buy her a little something anyway to say thanks). So today is a little less busy 🙂 and Im a bit richer than normal 🙂

    Bless that friend and your neighbor! I always try to remember to pass on a blessing when I can because God is always using someone to bless me. 🙂

    Oh, I wish I would have a wonderful neighbor like you do, Jen…How cool that she let you use her washing machine.

    Neat about the new toy for Daniel. It looks like he had a great time.

    Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

    Blessings to you and yours.

    Good for you, Jen. Isn’t it nice when we don’t even expect God to provide something and yet He just blesses abundantly.

    I’m glad you have a nice neighbor. (((hugs)))
