Don't those words have a negative connotation?
I'm here to change that.
Most people use the phrase Why Me? to express a complaint of unfairness.
I'm saying Why Me? as in,
Why am I so blessed?
When I worked at the DMV, or, the BMV as we in IN call it, I dreaded hearing 'you people', it was never good.
I'm saying 'you people' as in you - my readers and friends.
How did I ever find 'you people'?
You people are wonderful.
Since I began blogging almost a year ago, I've found the most wonderful people and re-connected with childhood friends.
I've been humbled by the kindness of strangers.
The generous spirit of women.
I'm incredibly grateful.
Here are just a few examples of what I mean:
After just a few emails back and forth, we became fast friends. Her generosity, creativity and insight are wonderful. She stopped by here one day in late November with her husband on their way back from Chicago. She lives a bit south of me. Or is it East of me? Southeast?
The day I saw this photo, I called and made a hair appointment.
Can you say 'flat iron'?
We have some fun shenanigans planned in the near future.
Then there is this Sindy.
You've no idea how I've confused Aaron with these two girls, and given that his mom's name is Cindy, he really had no idea who I was talking about at times.
The picture says it all....that girl is a flat out nut.
She is south of me, a few hours. Right? South, right?
I'm incredibly directionally challenged.
I really can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy your emails and comments. You guys crack me up to no end, touch my heart, encourage and inspire me so much.
This is what put me over the top today with gratitude.
In a recent post where I lamented over using paper towels, Beverly graciously offered to send me some rags to use for a paper towel substitute.
Look what I found in the box.
Look at that tag.
#9? She doesn't miss anything.
So incredibly sweet.
There were little vintage touches all over the apron, and would you look at that fabric?
Dancing chickens and eggs!?
Beverly, you are too much.
Again, I ask.
In completely unrelated news, Jinksie still has testicles.
He has a tattoo in his ear to show he's neutered.
Did my cat have a vasectomy?
