My Magical Mess

This is not a shining moment of mine. That is my preface to this post. But my explanation is this: we cannot fit all supplies in clinic due to space, so we keep some things in a pharmacy room at The Big House. Therefore, we have created something that may appear to be a black hole or, well, just a mess.

But this mess has also become a magical place. C.S. Lewis writes about children walking into a wardrobe and discovering they are in an enchanted land. Jesus fed thousands of people with just a few fish & some bread. This pharmacy closet multiplies & amazes me. I cannot even begin to explain. Times when I walk in, knowing that a medication isn't there- only to find it sitting on a shelf. Gauze when we have run out in clinic. Antibiotics that are expensive & difficult to obtain. Braces, crutches, inhalers- you name it, we have found it.

So don't get me wrong, it does need to be cleaned out & I will add it to my To Do List. But I also like to have my magical closet. You're just never really sure what you'll find!

Good Dog, Tug

Did you ever grow up reading a book called Good Dog, Carl? Well, every time we get to invite Youv over to stay with us, I have flashbacks of this book.
