Yes, I can still hear my mom say “Be careful what you wish for…” and this weekend our trip to Luling to check on the new home progress definitely brought this saying to mind.
As we drove down Crockett Lane towards our home we could see a big truck in the middle of our driveway – Yippee – Insulation was being installed – on the 4th of July no less….. Impressive!
As we turned into the driveway we realized there was a good-sized tree down. Immediate thought – “Dang, they hit our tree!” because it was a good-sized truck. Corey hopped out of our van to see what was up and realized a storm had taken the tree down, the insulation crew was just moving what they could out of way to pull their truck down to our home to begin their install.
Wish # 1 – we will take rain anytime we can get it (Yes – be careful what you wish for!)
Wish # 2 – a clean work site at our new home (Yes – once again – be careful what you wish for!)
Here are the photos that will explain why we should “Be Careful What We Wish For!)
When we were building the barn, one of the trucks delivering the materials had damaged this tree – I kind of had a feeling it wouldn’t make it through the build, but I really thought it would be a delivery truck that did it in, not a storm.
While it is important to have wishes and dreams – we must caution ourselves to “Be careful what we wish for!”
My wish for you is your Health and A Loving Family with Special Friends that we also consider Family!
