~ A GRATEFUL DAY ~

Hi there dear friends!  Belinda over at Blue Ribbon Designs drew my name as a runner up for her recent giveaway ~ swoon! I've been collecting Belinda's designs forever and am ever so grateful to find her sweet package in the mail, a tool pouch made by her own two little hands:)  She also included her SYHO chart with a sweet message too!  I ask you ~ what more could a girl want!  Thank you for your generosity Belinda, I treasure your thoughtfulness and am grateful you share your designs with all of us...




Spent time in the garden this morn, bless my DFIL Mike who at 89 continues to till the soil so we may reap a bountiful harvest from his garden, I love and adore him more and more each day, more than words can say...




There's something very special about our Aunts, isn't there?  We don't get to choose them, we just get them, and they love us like their own children, at least mine have.  Farewell sweet Aunt Peggy ~ task master, good deeder, secret keeper, valiant in spirit, loving beyond obligation, supporter of womankind, you'll be missed by many.  I'm a better person for knowing you and grateful for your gentle leadership all of my 51 years, may you soar with the angels...


Sniff sniff... now where's that tissue box...

Tootles, Sue
