~I'm a little late to the party this week. Friday snuck up on me since we were out of school on Mon. for MLK Jr. Day, and then again on Wed. due to snow in the mountains.
~ Here's proof that there are still good people out there:
A waitress in a restaurant in the big city missed work to go to Ohio to take care of her mom after a heart attack. She had a notice on her door from the utility company: her power was scheduled to be turned off the next day. One of her customers left her a tip for $1075 on a $29 bill. As it turns out, the couple had just moved here and hadn't found a church; the tip was the amount that they would have tithed. The best thing about it: the couple who left the tip refuses to be identified. You can read the whole story here. The story didn't mention that the waitress bakes for and feeds the homeless on her own time.
~ OS is going west. To Utah. And I couldn't be more excited for him. This has been a dream of his, and now he is in a position to go for it. I'm afraid he'll never come home, though. We're just praying for good weather on his drive out there.

Hope everybody is staying warm!
