Good morning sweet ladies,
Do you know that it makes a difference what we say? This weekend I received an adorable card (Mary Jane Farm card) with a 3 page letter in it and sunflower seeds and hibiscus seeds.......... (just for me) so I can start some seeds and think spring? It was from a lady that had been in Katrina's path. It ruined everything in their HOME. Here she had all this sadness happen and she thought of ME? I can't imagine the suffering the people went through. She said she used to buy my jumper and doll patterns when we sold them. In every pattern I would write a letter.......thanking the ladies for buying our pattern and then also about what was happening on the farm. I had so many ladies that would stick a note in their orders saying the first thing they would do when they opened up the pattern was to read "their letter". Always tickled me that they would even like. The letter my friend wrote was so encouraging. I guess it made me think........what do I write. Encouraging things? It also made me think about the the things I say. I will be reflecting on that today.
It is going to be 60 today.........can't wait!!!!!!! Will go to church this morning and then come home and look around my garden. It will be a good day! So much better then all the cold that we have been having!!!!!!!!! Still snow on the ground.........the sun will be out today............it won't be here for long.
Love this verse.
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter........... Genesis 8:22
Don't cha just love mail........in your comment box or in the real mailbox? I do! Okay...........here is something I would like for you farm and city girls to do with. Now only if you would like.......... please send me your address to my email (up at right hand corner at about me). I will send an email to the chosen lady with your address. I will not give your address or email to anyone one else! In the email you send me put SPRING in the subject . All you will have to do is find a card...........or make one..........write a little note......and put a package of seeds in it (or use your own seeds you have harvested). I will take names until this Wednesday the 16th. On Thursday I will match you up with some sweet lady. Sound like fun? I can't wait to see what happens. It will get us all in the mood for spring........like that is real hard for any of us to do. I think it will be neat, because we will be encouraging one another!!!!!! Now I am opening this up to anyone............ even overseas or Canada! If you would rather not have an overseas lady........let me know that in the email. Also you can take my blog picture (thinking about spring) and use it on your blog.....telling of my idea. Have it linked to this post. Okay.......lets see what happens. I really can't wait! I am soooooo totally excited about this one!!!! Can you tell? YOU will make a new friend!!!!!!!
Please leave a comment also on this post just to get other ladies see there is an interest! Thank you...... they can also then come to your blog, if they would like.
God Bless you today and have a wonderful SONday!!!!!!!!

Hugs from my farm to your HOME,
