I Was Blessed!

Hello Sweet Ladies,

I am putting this post up on Sunday evening. We had such a quiet and restful day. When we were leaving for church we were getting flakes of snow. The wind was blowing and it looked beautiful watching the snow flying. After we got out of church it had quit and then the sun came out and melted all the snow. It was one of those "every kind of weather days".

Later in the afternoon we had our friend Alicia out for supper. We fixed her roast, mashed potaotes, nummy gravy........and our canned green beans. Peanut Butter Pie for dessert also. When she came in she had a "big" brown grocery bag" filled with red berries of every kind! Ladies "look no more"...... for a red wreath. I will be able to make up a new one using the frame of my old one. I just need to wash up the green leaves..........and make a new bow. I will have it almost looking like it looked before. Talk about a sweet blessing!!!!!!!! It really was a God thing for me. A simple act of kindness...........but it did my heart so much good! I am asking the Lord who I can love on now!!!!!!!

I am so Tonya got the info. for Vitaliy's address. I am going to be getting a letter and some stickers sent off. That will help me feel like I am in touch at least. I keep seeing pictures of Vitaliy............miss that little boy!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday. I am going to be sporting my silly old hat a little different. It was kind of funny this morning. I was fixing my hair and thought I would try something different with the "HAT". It is still so ugly.......but I was a little bit happier with the way it looked. No....... I will not show you in case you were going to ask. You would laugh! Promise!

God Bless you!

Hugs from my farm to your HOME!



  1. Dear Linda,
    Vitaliy will be so happy to get a letter and stickers from you :) :) I'm sorry about that black hat ;( :( OH, LOVE the new font. Did you get it from Kevin & Amanda's site? I've been wanting to change the font on my blog for a long time!!! Oh, I'm glad you have new berries to make another wreath. Your friend is so sweet to bring that to you :) :) Have a great week at the college and with your family :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

    p.s. My dad and I went to a new church today..well, new to me...He'd been going for hte last few weeks :) :) I think this will be a good fit...and the Bible teaching is wonderful, ju st straight through the Bible :) :)

  2. Sounds like you had a great day! Isn't it amazing how God works..even when it comes to new berries for your wreath! He's just awesome like that!

  3. Maybe you can dress your hat up with some cute buttons, pins, flowers? Vitality is in the Lord's hands and you can rest knowing that!

  4. Hi Linda
    I am so pleased that you will be able to keep contact with Vitaliy.
    And what a blessing those berries - so pleased you will be able to make good use of them!
    Hope you have a wonderful day & week

  5. You know Linda, I'm thinking that as talented as you are and so creative too, that you could find something to add to that hat to make it a "you" hat. :) I know Vitaliy is going to be sooo very happy to hear from you. He'll certainly know that you care for him and miss him.

    Hugs XX

  6. Oh Linda,
    I just know that did your heart good and you were so appreciative. How thoughtful of Alicia! Can't wait to see the wreath up and going again. The simpliest acts of kindness are often the most meaningful. And who could resist doing something for are always so good to others.
    Thinking of your little V and know he is feeling your love.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
