We got all the shopping done and Sam is anxiously awaiting the morning...He is so thrilled about going...it was funny but all the while we were getting things and putting them in the cart..he just kept saying "I'm so excited about tomorrow...and thanks so much Mom"...it was really sweet. I know he is looking forward to making some new friends. (And..so am I :)
So..the new back pack is ready..and the new lunch box..and the cello awaiting it's first class..We're excited!!
After the shopping, I stopped by to visit my parents for a while. My mother decided to clean out her china hutch and give me a bunch of her pretties out of it. This will definately be another post..It was sort of strange to take them all and bring them home. I'm still waiting for Mark to paint my hutch..and it's not got done yet..I'm not happy about that..but, this might prompt him to do it. If not..I'm going to step in and do it. I went ahead and put all the things she gave me in the hutch. It will be a nice post to show you everything. She went through the kitchen drawers and gave me some old pot holders and some old...beautiful dutch girl days of the week dishtowels..they're adorable! They belonged to a really sweet neighbor that used to live next door to my parents. She's getting up there in age now..and she was always so sweet to us. It's very nice to have something of hers.. My Mom also gave me a big ole yellow and gold cookie jar that looks like a fancy teapot. It belonged to some close family friends of ours..it was a wedding gift. I love it because it reminds me of my Mom and Dad's house...well the kitchen...Mom has always had it on top of the fridge..that's where I put it too..
They also gave Mom the amber glass dishes they got too. She's giving me those too..but I told her not today..
Mom gave me a big pretty cross too. I have it sitting on top of our entertainment center for now. I might move it..I don't know yet. It actually is longer on the bottom and has a base..it's down in the top of the entertainment center..I like it though...
It has been a busy week. A week full of so many different emotions and ups and downs..mostly ups though :) I'm so thankful to God for the many blessings he has passed my way this week...very thankful....
There is no event so commonplace but that God is present within it.
With Love, Jerelene
