You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover


Since I first started driving I have a nasty habit of leaving my keys in my car. Every time I get out of the car I deliberately take my keys out place them in my purse or back pocket and take a mental note (or at least I try to). Yesterday...I locked my keys in the car. Thank God Trevor decided to take the spare key with him to work. Otherwise we'd be in a pretty pickle. What's funny is Trevor said that morning I'll just take this in case you never know. Ever since we moved to CA I've had this feeling that something like this might happen so I've tried to be very cautious. But alas, things happen.

Today we are making steaks for dinner. I went to the courtyard yesterday to see if the grills were working. I check grill #1 and the flame is so low I think it's not working. So I move on to grill #2. I follow the instructions careful to keep my body back and VOOSH! Flames at least a foot high spurt from the grill. "Wow!," I think, "That was awfully close to my face." So I decide to go tell management about the broken grill #1. He shows me that grill #1 is actually working and is their newest model. He gives me a tip to turn it on an hour before we're ready to grill so it is warm enough. I thank him and go back to the apartment. I walk in the bathroom and the front part of my hair is FRIED! As some of you know my hair is very short now, chin length (I cut off at least 10 inches and donated it to Locks of Love). So seeing the front part of my hair fried made me start to tear up. After I got over the initial shock, I cut off the burnt parts of my hair. Luckily it wasn't a whole lot that got fried.

Something that was reiterated to me yesterday is...You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover.

I thought yesterday was going to be absolutely horrible. I was late getting dinner ready. My hair caught on fire. I locked my keys in my car. But it actually turned out to be a really good day. Dinner was worth the wait. It was only my hair that got burnt and not my face. My hair will grow and no surgery and huge medical bills will be incurred. Trevor had the spare car key with him. God was looking out for us yesterday. And at the end of the day when I checked my email...our wedding photos were ready!!! =) Yay!!! =)


  1. I love that you have such a great out look. Aren't husbands great? It realy does something for the marital atmosphere when we are occasionally the damsel in distress and our husbands are princes coming around on their white horses.

  2. Aww Grace, you are just such an awesome person. I love how you look for the good in everything- even "bad" days.

  3. I'm glad everything turned out okay. :) Your wedding photos are gorgeous!! :)
