The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

It was absolutely spotless July 29, 2008

I went home from work yesterday, walked in the door and stopped dead in my tracks. I thought I was in the wrong house. It was spotless. The table was already set for dinner. The counters were completely cleared off in the kitchen and had been wiped off. Sink was empty. Dishwasher was already empty except for a small handful of dishes. Living room straightened. 15 year old was sitting in the recliner wearing headphones and listening to music.

Wait a minute. What’s going on here? Who are you and what have you done with my son?

There was never an explanation given for the exceptional extra effort put forth yesterday. No request for money or permission to do something extra. This didn’t seem to be a laying of the groundwork to soften us up for the delivery of bad news. Wow. This is really something special.

Thanks Allen for just being a really nice kid. We love you too. 🙂
