This morning I took a picture of this card.. It's so whimsical and it just makes me smile..I love the colors and I love that whoever drew this card made the snowlady a necklace.. and earrings...Her purse is a bird feeder..Sweet~!~! This is how our lives should be everyday...lots of smiles ~caring for others, even though these are birds... I was at the grocery store the other day and when I was driving down the street I saw this older lady getting off at the bus stop..She had two heavy bags and could barely walk..and it was raining. I turned the car around and pulled up beside her ..;put my window down and said "Mam do you need a ride?" She looked at me very surprised and then she said yes... She got into my car and I said "Do you live far?" She said 1 mile ... Oh my , I said and you are going to walk in this weather?" She said "Well it wasn't raining when I left the house.." I asked her if she had anymore shopping to do and she said she had a prescription to pick up at the Hy-Vee grocery store.. I told her that we could stop there and she could go in and get it...which she did.( I told her "Do you know if you call Hy-Vee they will mail it to you?) She said She didn't know that and thanked me. I then took her home and yes it was 1 mile away.. She thanked me over and over and wanted to pay me.. I told her "No, that if she paid me she would be missing God's blessing"... She had tears and told me that this had never happened to her before.. I told her that God must of placed me in the right place to see that she needed help.. I love helping other people whenever I can and it just makes me smile and just Thank God..~!
This morning as I was sitting here at my desk typing this and looking out window at the birds at the bird feeder. Drinking my coffee yum yum~! A small buck deer with a nice rack on his head walk to the platform bird feeder and then came up to the window where I was sitting and looked in....OMGoodness~! I just sat very very still and didn't move a muscle.. I wanted to take a picture so bad but knew if I even blinked my eyes he would run off.. So I just soaked in the wonderment of him looking at me and I looking at him and then he casually left and walked out to my vegetable garden and ate the apples I had left there early this morning..I just sat here watching him and then off he sprang...white tail in the air and running towards our pasture.. My oh My what a blessing that was to see something that magnificent eye to eye.. I just sat here Praising God ~! There is beauty all around us,,we just have to be very still and be alert to see it and then enjoy it when it comes our way...God is so good and he loves us so much~!
Knitting slippers last couple of weeks.. Got my son-in-law's done and in the mail and this morning I finished my daughter, Jodie's slippers (purple) ,,hubby took them with him and mailed them for me.. Jodie is going to be so happy.. She said her floors are cold and she can hardly wait to put these slippers on her feet.. Now I just cast on yarn for the 3rd pair of slippers.. Lime Green,,these are going to be for Ben... He requested a pair after he saw that I was making some for his Aunt Jodie.. He loves her so much..
I finally fiqured out how to cast on two pair slippers using circular knitting needles. Oh how nice this is: make two slippers at the same time.. I'm on a roll...
Have a Tiggeriffic and Blessed Day~!~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)
