Simply Blessed by Him, through 'Nana'!

For many years we've wanted to get a piano for our Katie.  She has lovely long thin fingers and can play so gracefully.  We've searched Craigslist, etc. but have never found one in good condition that meets the budget.  Today I got a call and found out that Katie will be receiving a wonderful piano in excellent condition, plays beautifully....all for free!!!  What a wonderful gift!  My sister, whom our kids adore and call 'Nana' (her name is Rhonda) has a piano that her sweet hubby got her awhile back and she has decided that she needs the space in her home so she's gifting it to our Katie!  How sweet is that?  Years ago Rhonda used to take all the kids to her apartment (when she was still single) and keep them overnight, they played video games, watched movies, rode around in her cute little red convertible, etc.  She holds a very special place in their hearts, she and my sweet little mama were the only babysitters they've ever had in their lives, if they weren't with them they were with us.  We're a wee bit selfish with them!!!
Anyway, tomorrow she gets her new piano.  Now all we need to do is find a teacher for her.  Years ago I took lessons from a sweet little lady that was in her 80's, she's been gone for many years now.  I didn't learn enough to teach Katie but hopefully we can find some good Christian music teacher for her close by.
Isn't God incredible???!!  He is using Rhonda as a tool to answer a prayer.  How blessed we are!
