It was so wonderful just to be home today
(until I had to get the car from the mechanic late in the day,
the alternator had died most likely because the battery was totally dead,
the battery was able to be recharged however).
Laundry got done, the house is much cleaner, I was able to begin
putting away Christmas things and switched out the table linens.
A friend gave me a pretty brooch (blue and white, sparkly!)
and the table looked so fancy when I changed it and put the
chocolates and box with the blue and white pin on it.
Was like Valentines Day but with chocolates and jewelry instead of
the wonderful 2 Ortho-CDs my Sweetie gave me (I asked for them
for Valentines Day).
I felt like I was on an alternate version of Valentines Day
(given how much chocolate we were given at Christmas, my Husband would have
never gotten me another box of chocolate, but it sure is pretty, it was from one of my
local lady friends) and the blue and white pin/brooch was from another lady friend....
My Husband is generous and got me things that I did not have lots of
but I do admit I am enjoying the heart shaped chocolate box and the pin
is really pretty!
I wish I could have more people over to share all the chocolate I have...
and tea...and treats...and such!
I never thought I would be so spoiled with gifts like I am in this time of my life.
I read more of The Village Centenary and am just loving it!
My friend is still in hospital...she really needs prayers...she is improving
but red tape is making it difficult for her to move to the next place for
more healing. It's really difficult for her right now :(
My Husband brought home more flowers today...
The dolls in the pictures above were a gift we were given yesterday...
(along with a beautiful blue willow charger plate! and other things)...
they came in the mail... so nice!
We have about 5 or 6 plates to be hung up now to put up in our place... we don't usually
get to such things until our parents visit though... :) ... just so much going on
in our daily life... but one thing at a time...
I hope that this weekend will have some moments of encouragement
for each of you and that God will give your heart rest no matter
what is happening in your life.
May God's mercy uphold us and help us!
May God save us and have mercy!
