Vday Label and a little chat

Hello Ladies!
I wanted to pass along a Valentines Pantry Jar Label to everyone. I have been working on all kinds of labels lately. I kinda like it. I'm only using MS word...I would LOVE to get one of the new photoshop programs. I would be in front of the computer all day!

I got to go to a couple of TS on Monday. I went to 2 GW's and struck out...nothing! Then I went to Salvation Army and got a few things. I will have to show pics at a later camera needs new batteries. It eats them...I go thru so many batteries!

I have entered a couple of swaps lately so I've been busy working on all of those goodies. I am learning how to use the sewing machine and how to embroider. My mom is teaching me. We live 1/2hr from each other so finding time that we are both available and good weather, well let's just say it's been a slow process. I hope to get the hang of it. Seeing all these wonderful goodies everyone is making lately is inspiring me and making me a little jealous! Keep up the good work ladies!

Lastly, I would like to post an email that was forwarded to me this morning.

Burnt Biscuit

When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work.
On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit and eat every bite!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said: "Honey, I love burned biscuits."

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides - a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"

Life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. But what I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults - and choosing to celebrate each others differences - is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!

"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - keep it in your own."

God Bless You....... Now, and Always....

So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt one will do just fine.!.!.!.! And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life... I just did.

Have a GREAT Day!
