Endearing and Enduring Friendship...

Old and dear friends of ours just left after visiting with us for 3 days. We actually spent much of that time with friends who live here also - a ratio of 6 adults to 9 kids. I am reminded whenever we get together of just how precious friendship is - especially with those who know you, listen to you (blah, blah, blah...), and still accept you for who and what you are. We spent much time reliving the past, looking toward the future and trying to figure out our present. I love it when laughter (and tears) abound, along with good food and fun! They always remind me that, though this life is hard ( a phrase I know I use way too often) - it also is sweet and filled with constant reminders of God's love and redeeming grace.

I think we need to visit way more often....

A New Year!

A new year and so many ideas are whirling around in my brain. I finally cleaned out the garage (major clutter) and thankfully have a more organized workroom - you know, to work in. So, I can't wait to hit the table and get to work on new creations. Please check back often to see what I'm whipping out. I can't wait to show you!
