I'm going to open my post
with a bright and sunny "Hello"
I went out to check the mail this morning
and this lovely handmade card
from Marilyn of Pink Paper Cottage
was waiting to greet my day
and I was blessed by her thoughtfulness.
Thank you, sweet friend :)
Saturday morning I got up
and got dressed, ready to attend
a funeral of an old friend . . .
well, I got in the car
and just couldn't go.
There are things that I'm just
not ready for . . .
I tell others to not rush themselves'
so I decided to take my own advice.
Actually it's advice that I've gotten
from attending Grief Share meetings.
Since I was already in the car
headed for town I decided to go
thrifting at Goodwill.
That's where I found the pretty
pink pickle dish and forks.
I also found all these candle holders
and the wooden tray.
This is the tray after cleaning
and applying a couple coats of tung oil.
And this battery candle/lantern.
Last but not least . . .
this pretty spring wreath.
It has been a very long time
since I just when roaming
It was good . . .
it gave me some new things for the
house, without breaking the bank :)
It was good just to do something different
and get out of the house.
I don't know about you . . .
but I seem to hibernate.
I blame it on winter roads
and on Covid, but truely
I think it's a battle with loneliness.
I want to have people around,
but I don't get out and socialize.
It's hard to explain . . . because I
don't understand the feelings I have
and if I don't understand them,
how can I explain them.
I guess that's what they call
a catch 22, not even sure about that.
Well, now that you all know how
mixed up I am, I'll say so long
and end my post.
If I didn't have the Lord
I wouldn't have any hope at all.
Isn't it wonderful that even when
we are at our weakest points
His strength holds us up
His Love and Light gives us hope.
God bless you all.
