Water, Water, Everywhere

So...I'm a few days later than I meant to be on this post, but at least it's getting up! We have company coming this weekend and I have been a crazy person trying to get everything clean and organized. I know you're shocked and amazed that my house isn't already sparkling...ha!

We were all set to go out of town this past weekend and on Friday morning my wonderful hubby threw on some last minute laundry. I was just thinking that the washing machine was louder than normal when the water started POURING out from underneath the door. Did I open the door and see why? Nope. I froze on the spot and yelled for my husband.

I am such a girl.

He comes running in and found the hose on the back of the washer unattached from the wall and spraying water EVERYWHERE. He stops the washer and looks out at me (still standing in the same spot, ankle deep in water) and says, "Hey babe, can you maybe get me some towels?"

That wonderful calmness in the middle of a crisis is one of his best qualities. If you haven't picked up on it yet, I am not so great in a crisis. Actually, that's not true. I am really good when other people are having a crisis...I just can't handle my own!

None the less, we mopped everything up and now have a sparkling clean laundry room. Not quite the way I would have kicked off my Labor Day weekend, but when I think about how much worse it would have been if we had left the house after starting the washer, it makes me thankful that we caught it quickly.

Just one more way God is reminding me to count my blessings and not to sweat the small stuff!
