Well, it is Monday night and I am finally taking over my blog again. My sweet daughter Lauren did it for me, while I was busy at the Quilt Market. How grateful I am that she took the time to do that. Amy did it for me the last time I was out of town. They both did an amazing job, so good that I was afraid you wouldn't want me back! :)
It has been interesting to see the concern the whole family has for my blog. I am constantly asked "Have you done your blog yet?" "What are you going to write about today?" I think my family realizes how much this blog has done for me, and hopefully has done for others. It is true, some days when I am feeling low and wondering if I am making progress at all, I go back and read some of my old posts, and realize I am making progress...no matter how slow it is.
Tonight I am at my oldest brother's house with him and his wife. I have to admit, I love their house. Probably because she decorates it with the true country motive. I mean my house is country too, but hers is actually like you went back in time. She goes to tons of Estate sales and garage sells, and has quite the eye for decorating. It is fun to look around and see all the treasures she has found. Actually all my sister-in-laws are all quite the decorators, all different but all incredible.
I need to head to bed, I hope that you enjoy this sweet story of attitude. I also hope you enjoyed my daughter's posts as much as I did, and I hope you are as glad to see me back, as I am to be back?
Good night dear friends!
As Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it as the train was moving. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the first. Asked by a fellow passenger why he did so, Gandhi smiled. "The poor man who finds the shoes lying on the track," he replied, "will now have a pair he can use."
