The gift of a Smile and a Moment to Enjoy

"Ohhhhhhh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!"
Mary Lou's Favorite Snow Angels.....
I saw this little dress and wanted to know why they don't make things like this in my size? This would fit in perfectly with my quilts! It is a good reference for color ideas. And by the way, don't you wish they made adult shoes that blink? I sure do
I want a set of these pencils for Christmas don't you?
Can you believe the colors of duct tape now? My Grandfather's idea of fixing anything was to wrap it in gray duct tape...I remember a chair intheir kitchen that was half gray from him wrapping and wrapping, would be really fun for me to see now with this kind of stuff!
I love all of the birds make from the Flower Power book but this time of year the cardinals are the best!
My husband and I are very thankful this Christmas and so thankful for all of you who prayed for us. Bunnysisters, thank you sincerely. Kathy Collins your card to Mark was lovely and appreciated. Life is good and it is good to give thanks for it's many blessings no matter how simple. I hope this made you smile today. I put a clip on my column to the right by Ben Aaron, my favorite reporter,,,there is another one on my other blog. He is hilarious. It feels so good to laugh and to smile doesn't it? Remember to share your joy with others....people who serve this time of year, love a cheerful person who shares their smile and something nice to say... I am going to share my Aunt's fudge recipe which is called "Don't share this recipe with anyone fudge"-it is delicious...stay tuned

Hi Mary Lou! I'm not a big poster but I have posted on occasion. I just wanted to tell you that I am praising God with you for the clean bill of health He granted your dh Mark (my husband is a Mark, also)...that you still have each other to enjoy, hopefully for many years to come.

I have plans to make an angel quilt using your book to guide me. For about 4 years now, I have told myself this is the year I'm going to make it...still haven't done it. Maybe 2013 is the year... ;)

Merry Christmas!

I enjoy visiting your cheerful blog so much. I'm always guaranteed to get a smile if not a giggle and laugh. Thanks!

PS..I'm glad that your husband is on the mend from his surgery. Scary time but I'm convinced that people heal better when they have family and friends cheering them on. My 88 yr old grandpa had to have cancer surgery earlier this year and it really seemed to lift his spirits whenever my husband and I visited him. Now he's fantastic. Here's to the same for your husband!

Merry Christmas and thank you for all the fun blogs. So glad to hear about your husband good news. I know that feeling. I am a cancer survior of 1 year. That year was made easier by reading your blog and rereading your books.
