Santa And His Elf Make My Day!

Our washing machine was leaking oil. ¬†We would often find grease streaks on our clothing – just lovely. We placed an order for a new washer-dryer set last Saturday and delivery was set up for this morning. I was not looking forward to dealing with the delivery guys, the upheaval of moving out the old stuff, nor cleaning up the gooey mess that I suspected was under the old washer. When I have such strong, negative expectations for something, life usually surprises me. I’m sure that it’s God’s way of letting me know that I’ve still got a lot to learn.

My doorbell rings and all these low hopes go with me to the front door. There is no way this is going to be fun. I open it, and standing there is one very tall Santa, and his elf is unloading a hand truck! Instantly, I’m laughing. Two of the cutest, happiest delivery guys ever, wearing Santa hats, are bringing me my new washer and dryer.

You can't tell me that this isn't the REAL Santa wearing his work clothes.

There was a horrible gooey mess under the old washer, but I didn’t mind cleaning it up. That’s what happens when you hang out with jolly old Santa. And, he really does know everything! Santa anticipated that I would want the dryer door hinged on the other side and took care of it before he brought the unit into the house. Santa and his elf were excellent installers! Just what you would expect from Father Christmas and his head elf.

I must have been especially good this year for Santa to have gone through all the trouble of personally delivering my new laundry equipment.
