Tristan loves to draw on and cut paper. Sometimes he leaves a great pile of cut paper on the kitchen floor. Before going to bed one Friday night, Brian asked if I wanted the paper pile picked up in the kitchen. I said, “No. No one is coming over. Besides Tristan will just create another pile shortly after waking up.”
The next morning we woke up early to the sound of someone knocking on our front door. Brian jumped out of bed to see who it was. It was a police officer wanting information on the whereabouts of a homeless man Brian had ministered to months earlier. Brian answered the officer’s questions the best he could, then came back to bed. After the officer left we fell back to sleep. When I woke up, my mind raced, “Oh no! The paper pile!” I frantically walked to the kitchen to see if someone could see the mess from the front door. Yes they could! Then I anxiously asked Brian, “Did you let the officer inside our home?” He answered, “Yes.” I wondered what the officer thought. Brian said he almost explained to the man the paper pile but decided not too. I guess you never know who might drop by. In the future I will make sure to clean up the great pile of paper before we go to bed.
Enjoy another healthy dose of laughter from our home!
