Thank You Does Not Seem Enough
I want to share some other things with you. I had a nice surprise last week. (Had a not so nice one too), but I was at the Hen on Saturday and lo and behold, Patty Sumner, My Mountain Blessings, came in shopping! She is so cute and so nice. Her sister Sue was with her and she was a delight. What is it with bloggers? When you meet a fellow blogger it is like meeting an old friend. That is the way I felt with Patty. She had come from Kentucky to shop at the open house. I know we will meet again. I didn't have my camera, so no pictures. Go over and read her blog. I also met Angela, from Through Nanas Window.She had come up from Georgia. She was a triple delight, because it was her, Holly,her daughter, and Darbee Rae, her beautiful granddaughter.Darbee Rae had to have her own shopping basket and she won a door prize.She is a 4 year old prim lover! What a fun time that was. Again, no camera, but she had hers so visit her blog later to see pics. Again it was instant friendship. I have been blessed with meeting so many bloggers and I don't know why. But I am truly thankful for the opportunity. Here is a couple of Christmas pictures from the Hen.
I also had another nice surprise yesterday. Marchel, the Bama Planter,blogspot.com, sent me some egg gourds. I love them! They are so nice. I have never had any before and I can't tell you how excited I am to have them. I put them in the old egg basket Curtis' great grandmother, made of willow.
Before Amanda was diagnosed I had begun to decorate a bit for Christmas. I just love Christmas and can't get enough of it. This is one little corner. I am ready to cut some greenery and get it going.
Gifts from blogging friends. Sue,Prim Sue's Heart and Home, gave me the dish towel. Angela, Through Nana's Window, gave me the candle. When I see them I feel so fortunate and blessed.
ps: For my not so nice surprise. Last Friday night while Amanda was having surgery, somebody decided to burglarize my home. Dasko was there, but think maybe he was tasered, or hit when the door facing fell. They only took all of my good jewelry. Remember the necklace that "grabbed"me? It is gone too. Oh well. Would you do me a favor? Would you pray for them too?
