I have the greatest friends. I will say that over and over and over on this blog of mine because it's so true.
Here is just ONE example of a friends kindness toward me. This friend would have never entered my world except that she & her husband and their daughter use to live in this house! They were the previous owners of our darling home. I always had a sense of thankfulness toward them, because after all, they picked US to have their home. If I remember correctly there was another offer on the table.
I feel forever indebted to them; we love our home, our plot of soil in this big, big world. Shortly before our settlement in 2007 they had a car accident which moved things back a bit. I felt soooo badly for her. It's hard enough trying to pack up house and home, take care of a child and prepare to move to another state, let alone having a broken arm while doing it, (was it an arm Michelle? I forget?). Anywho, I wrote her a letter because I really did feel sad for them. Our friendship continued into the day of settlement when I gave her a little bag o' goodies for their journey to Texas with an almost 2 year old! Since that time she has sent me many more packages then I've EVER gotten to her! Gifts for the children, hand-stitched sayings framed in rustic barn board frames, and THIS lot.....I'm tellin' ya, she's a keeper!!!! THANK YOU MICHELLE!! And just so you know, our home is always open if you're ever in this area, quite literally, our home is your home!!!And then I found THESE KNOCK-OUTS in my mailbox the other day. Please, could I have this happen more often.....HOT PINK BEADED STILETTOS IN MY MAILBOX!! what??? Again, I have the bestest besties! Thank you Mrs. Stoppard, my neighbor, my friend.
I'd like to label this picture:
TWO WORLDS COLLIDE.

Also, there is a ginormous hover steam vac sitting in my kitchen that weighs a TON.....my carpets are currently a breeding ground for all sorts of creatures so this week they will meet their doom.

it's a million little things."
