A man passed away leaving his bride behind. Somehow he’d amassed a rather large collection of work boots and cowboy boots still in their boxes with receipts! Bart stopped over a few nights ago and took a look. The gal said she’d take whatever for them and that they just needed to be sold. Bart wound up with two pair cowboy boots and 3 pair work boots! When he arrived home the smell of real leather filled the house. It was like a really nice Christmas and everyone was excited. Bart pulled each pair out of their packaging to show the boys and me. Hank took a particular liking to a pair that Bart said, “If I only got these I would be happy.”
Hank carried that boot all around the house yesterday. In this picture he was just holding it while watching a show. When I put Gideon down for a nap, Hank (who I thought was washing his hands) filled that boot with water in the bathroom sink!
When I found him I just said, “Oh no!” several times. Hank looked concerned too and said, “Don’t worry momma we can get another one, there’s two.” 🙂
Sweet little boy.
I explained that I hoped it wasn’t ruined and then we agreed we should pray. I prayed that the boot would be ok and that Hank would remember not to put water in it. Then Hank closed the prayer saying, “Amen.”
I just love Hank SO much!
Here are some more shoe pictures:
Dear Jesus, thank you for the abundant blessing on Bart. I am amazed that someone nearby was selling new boots in Bart’s size for so cheap. They are good shoes and should last Bart a really long time (provided they don’t go swimming anymore). 😉 Amen.
