I couldn't believe my eyes, when checking my Blog this morning. It seems like yesterday, when I timidly posted my first entry and picture, and the happy dance I made when getting my first comment (from Jeanne - Spiral - if I remember well)...
And now I visit you every day (I miss you when I can't), and I feel like entering a friend's house each time I do. All of you have brought so much sunshine into my life, so many encouragements, so many bright ideas, so many good reasons to keep trying and progressing (and so many good reasons to buy fabric ! LOL)...
These many things are not necessarily all quilting related :
- I started listing 5 gratitudes, following Jeanne's example, and this "forced" me to meditate about my day (or week), to become more receptive to the positive - sometimes insignificant - events in my life.
- Reading about your everyday life, taught me about your family recipes, your housekeeping tips, organization, but also love, courage and perseverance. You made me laugh, you sometimes made me cry, but you always made me feel so happy to know you...
- You made me progress in English, not only with my posts but with the books you mentioned in yours. (Amazon love me !) - I love being funny, which is not always easy, using a foreign language.
- You made me progress in colors, seeing your pictures and making mines.
This absolutely deserves a special treat, don't you think so ?
Well I chose that cute house tin box, among my beloved ones, because you all make me feel -at home - when I'm with you . Of course, I'll fill it with goooooooodies and yummmmmies, and then I'll send it to the name I'll draw from my hat, by next Monday 3rd September, night.... so don't forget to write a comment on this post !
Shall we sing it all together now ? OK...
Grab your coat, and take your hat
leave your worries to the door step
life can be so sweet
on the sunny side of the street !
THANK YOU MY FRIENDS !
