Thanks and Monday Morning Discovery

I want to say thanks to my friends who have wished me "get well" and/or commented on my blog. Your words are greatly appreciated.

I discovered something new this Monday morning. Perhaps it wasn't new; I just hadn't quite picked up on it yet. MY FIFTEEN YEAR OLD SON HAS SUPER POWERS!!! You heard me correctly. Just this very morning I discovered that he has the ability to change inanimate objects into whatever he wants them to be.

"Uh, Matthew, don't you want to put a coat on? It's pretty cold out this morning."

The look. "Mom, this IS a coat!"

"Oh really? It looks an awful lot like the shirt you were wearing on Friday."

"It's a coat, Mom. I'll be fine. "

"Okay. Well, you and your coat can get a ride to school this morning. It's too cold to be walking in that, um, lightweight coat."

After dropping him off at school, my mind ran wild. (I know, I know...running wild is a state of being for my mind.) If I could somehow acquire his super powers, life would be just dandy. That mountain of reeking clothes in the laundry room? I would just call it clean, folded and put away. Voila! The hamburg that will still be frozen twenty minutes before dinner time? I will call it "Casserole Extrodinaire" and head to the craft room to play. And right now? Well, I would call myself showered, dressed and ready to tackle my day...Voila. *Sigh* . No super powers here...

Thankful for the Only True Super Power, Jesus Christ,

Marie with a :-)
