Quilting Animals and being kind when it's unexpected(it's a gift to YOU...

"You call that quilt art"?

"Which way is this quilt supposed to hang, Dear"?

"What was in that delicious cake you brought Linda????"....

"Quilting Retreats leave me exhausted"!

"What husbands do when their wives go quilting"...
Mark and I went to buy a Starbucks on a cold day and by the garbage cans outdoors, there was a man who had obviously just woken up. His greay hair was all tossled and he looked like someone who had slept in 2o something degree weather. We went through the drive through and bought him a large hot coffee with sugars to add and Mark went back to give it to him.
Mark said he was just shivering something terrible and he looked up and Mark said, "here's some hot coffee buddy." The guy said "oh wonderful, wonderful." I asked Mark what he was doing and he said he was making a sign to hold. We had a couple of Missions here for the homeless to stay in but they can't if they are drunk. Maybe this is why he chose outdoors. It was really sad to see. If you have a warm home, a nice bed, something to eat and someone to phone and say you love them, you have many riches that others don't have. It might be a good idea to make a list of then things you are thankful for today.
I am thankful for you and that you like to smile, see bright happy things and be thoughtful of others too. Thanks so much!
Cheery Day to YOU,
Mary Lou

Life is tough. And one wonders why some choose that kind of life. We all need all the help we can muster and thankful for those Guardian Angels that are out there. I thank MY Lucky stars too.
