GIFTS*MORE THEN MATERIAL * LOVE * SUPPORT * KINDNESS * KNOWLEDGE

I want to tell you that I am loving the comments you are sending me about the things that you love. Thank you so much. Please keep them coming in. They touch my heart and lift my spirit and make me realize how blessed we all are.

I was also thinking about gifts ...the ones that really mean something and stay with us for years SUCH AS WHEN.....
- A friend or family member supports us through a difficult time. My friend Marcy seems to know exactly how to do this time after time and my friend Caroline from Ebay has helped me over and over again with understanding my concerns with Casey's health.


- When someone is so kind to us it brings a tear to our eye and touches our heart and lifts our spirit. My daughter helped me clean the house and reorganize it when Casey was in the hospital at one time and my little grandaughter tells me I need a glass of water to feel better when I have a coughing spell...she was only 3 at the time. Such sweetness from them both.


- When someone shares with us knowledge that we have the rest of our lives. My mother taught me to embroider and cook and how to show love to my family.





- When somone touches our heart and soul with love and we never forget it. Casey, my husband even at almost 80 always offers to help me with the most difficult tasks and does it cheerfully and kindly and happily.

These are the greatest gifts.




Now girls....tell me about specific situations or spiritual gifts that you have received. I would love that.

OOOh I must run...I need to finish the house up and prepare for my daughter and husband and grandsons on Friday. Can't wait.

I love blogging and talking with you and hearing all your sweet comments. OOOh do keep them coming in.

Also girls be certain to check out my new Ebay listings...I am trying to keep everything I list under $20.00 with absolutely no reserve and I will list many for just five days.


A pretty little poem just for you girls....

If one could just go back again and be a child at Christmastime,
to feel anew that breathless thrill, that tiptoe sense of awe sublime,
to sing the carols one knows best and light the candles, view the tree,
to hear the reindeer on the roof and almost feel that one could see beneath
the mistletoe and holy Santa's face so round and jolly,

To go with mother to the town and buy a doll for Nancy,
to try and stretch some dollars for a present fine and fancy,
to have the smell of evergreen send happy shivers down the spine,
to hang red ribbons on a wreath of hemlock, spruce, and pine,
to capture all that INNER GLOW WE USED TO FEEL SO LONG AGO,

To creep down the to the fireplace so early on that quiet morn
and lift that lumpy stocking down....
the one that has your name pinned on,
to scurry with it back upstairs and empty it upon the bed....
nuts and candy, cake and pears and giant apples, polished red,
OH! to be that child again at HAPPY CHRISTMASTIME!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Now never fear...I will keep this all JUST BETWEEN US GIRLS.

Hi Pat I'm so happy you decided to have a blog so more people will have an opportunity see your wonderful creations and get to know you better.

Oh Pat...such a sweet idea. My favorite gifts are
*Good health for my family and for myself
*Loving and supportive friends who like it best when I am ME
*Wonderful childhood memories and the ability to give equally wonderful memories to my own children
*A husband who is my best friend

So much more! Oh I'm just so glad you started blogging, Pat!

Big Hugs to you...
