My friend, Joy,recently did a post on how blessed we are.
She gave me an idea.
She reminded me how very blessed I am.
Joy said her Sunday School Class made up gallon ziplock bags of *goodies* to give out at stoplights to those who are holding homeless signs. (Often I am too quick to judge their reason for begging. I have decided it is not up to ME to make that determination. I am giving in good faith.) In those baggies they put canned fruit, crackers, bottled water, etc. and handed them out when they saw the need. My friend, Renee', and I decided we would follow Joy's lead. We got some gallon ziplock bags. Inside we put beanie weanies, canned fruit, crackers, peanuts, a drink and a plastic spoon. We were SO excited that we will have the opportunity to make a difference.
Sometimes we fail to let people know how much they mean to us.These two (youngest son and daughter-in-law) do SO much for us. They live close by and that makes them available to do things our other kids can't do because of distance. We are so grateful that they love us and would do anything in the world we need. (Whether that's mowing the yard, or bringing us yummy desserts.)
I don't want to ever take for granted the love they show us.
And besides, I did a post for the other two kids for their anniversaries.
Amanda at One Sweet World challenged me to make a Top Ten list. I LOVE lists and often form lists of things in my head (weird, I know). However, when I start to MAKE a list, I can never think of my favorites. After I post the list, I will remember lots more. Oh well....I will give it a try.
Top Ten Baby Names (in no particular order)
Belle (well, actually I LOVE Trillabelle but I love any name with Belle in it!) (girl)
