Harvest Blessings *VBS* The door hanging was a gift from my first DDIL. She often gives me Autumn related things for my October birthday. I suppose that tends to be a birthday hazard...LOL. If born in April or May, I'll bet you get spring or early summer type presents. And how about you mid-summer gals? Stuff suitable for hot weather? And Christmasy things for the late-in-the-year gals?? I'm curious to know *VBS*Today my thoughts are about blessings. Something it's often easy to lose sight of. Or to pay lip-service to..I know, I know, DON'T END A SENTENCE IN A PREPESITIONAL PHRASE!..but I do...often..*G*.
Rebel at heart, you know *G*And also a bad speller!
Counting my blessing yesterday. I thought about Sprig(Sandy to you) over at Rabbit Stitchings(see sidebar for link) and got a small package off to her, my very dear friend. And I thought about dear, dear Kathie in NJ...somehow I just KNOW what a sweetie she is, and wish we could 'cut up stuff' and stitch together, sometime. I got her little package winging it's way out of WI. Each of you, that I have come to know. is a blessing to me...in many different ways.
Today I rose to the challenge and managed to stuff an entire computer paper box and mailed off to the 5 little S. grandkids that live in Southern WI. Halloween goodies, some thrift store finds, new color books and crayons, the little doll and pony wrapped in the quilt for the 2 yr. old, paint by number for the older boys and a snuggle quilt for the whole family to use on the couch. It was too much for TWO flat rate boxes...ug! If I couldn't send it for the $19+ they would have cost...how much WAS it going to cost me? Yikes!
Well I'm happy to report another blessing...*VBS* It's called Parcel Post and I mailed that 11 pound package for $8.10...I was delighted!!!!!! Way to go Finn!!
Blessing do seem to come in many sizes and shapes, don't they??
I had a wonderful lunch of homemade soup, bread,bars and beverage at the local nursing home...I ate with friend Jean, custodian Brian(an old friend's husband), and a few gals I know only slightly. We had a wonderful time at our crowded table for 4. It was a short lunch...I was the only one who didn't have to return to work..LOL, but that's ok. The atmosphere was one of love, family, friendship and caring. One knows all those dear elderly ancestors are truly safe living there. I left with a lighter step and a smile on my face. Now who needs more blessings than that????
A wee bit of progress today!
