Gold Wrapping Paper

This came to me via email and I had to share it on my blog.

I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too. I've chosen. Now it's your turn to choose.

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then said, 'This is for you, Momma.'

The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty.

She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner. 'Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?'

She had tears in her eyes and said, 'Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full.'

The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life.

Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD.

There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

You now have two choices:
1. Pass this on to your friends, or
2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice No. 1. and took it to a new level.

Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

If you receive this more than once in return just know that your friends have also thought of you.

Baby outfit and a scarf

This is a scarf that I made for Melissa's mom so she would stop taking Melissa's....LOL

This is a baby outfit that I made for Juliet's new grandson, Josiah.

On my hook right now is a hat/scarf/mitten set for my supervisor at work, for her two year old son. I am playing with Go, Diego, Go! graphics to make this set. Diego is the fav charactor of the sons right now.

Then I have to make Juliet another scarf...all black this time....LOL

A fire in the fireplace.
Curio cabinet.

Kitchen (one corner)
Another corner.
Boots warming up Mommy's spot on the bed.
Standing at the front door looking down the hall to the bedrooms.
Wall unit set up so far. And yes, those are unpacked boxes on the left. They are all books that I have to figure out where to put.


Well I figured out that I can take the little tiny disc out of my camera and plug it into my laptop. Woohoo! I can upload pics that way until I find that stupid cord....LOL

Here is the SnowMan Scarf I finished on Sunday.

Blogger is taking forever to upload pics today. I have a few pics of the new house to upload.

Lest we forget...

As I was sitting here watching the Remembrance Day ceremony from Ottawa, I was really touched by the passing of the torch. John Babcock, the last survivoring veteran of WWI at 108 years of age, passed the torch to a veteran of WWII, that person in turn passed the torch to a veteran of the Korean War..the torch was then passed to a military person who had served in Afghanistan.
I think that my wish is that there is no need or person to pass the torch onto after Afghanistan. That war would become obsolete and there would be no need for people to put their lives on the line every single day to give us the freedom that we take for granted.

Please remember the men and women who serve this great country of ours and keep them in your prayers. Not just today, but everyday.
