Good morning everybody! I hope you get enjoyable weather this weekend. We will reach the sixties and it will be sunny. Until Sunday night!!! Snow and cold then. Yuck! Hello to new followers. Welcome.
I am almost done with my third little giftie. Actually this would be a fourth one, as I cannot decide which to send on, number 3 or 4. I will decide this weekend, and then send this on it's way.Still no word on the other two gifts being received.
Jacob returned to us last night. He had been on a retreat offered through school. This was an optional retreat, so it was an intimate group of almost 30 seniors. We parents waited in the chapel to welcome them back. It was a special time, rather emotional. The children felt it was a life changing experience for them. Guess who came in the chapel right as we were ready to start? The new mom with her tiny babe! She is a senior herself, and a few of her friends went on this retreat, so she wanted to be there when they returned. =) She sat across the chapel from Brian and I, facing us. She spotted us and smiled. We went to her after the service. She was so happy and thankful. She said she recognized us and knew who we were. We had signed our names on the card with the gift. We never knew she knew of us though. And guess what Shirlee?? She positively beamed as she pointed out to me, "See, she is wearing the outfit." The precious little outfit you gave her Shirlee. It fits, with a bit of room to spare. What really touched my heart, is that I had only delivered it to the office at school that very morning. She went home to her child after school, and put her in that outfit planning to show that precious child to us. =) Oh, I am such a softie. I am crying again at this very moment!! The little baby girl is just so beautiful. Dark, fluffy hair and dark brown eyes.
So....... I finished A Place Of Remembrance. Very good book. Well, I am off to start the day friends. I hope you all have a stitchy weekend.
Stitching and praying,
