Yes, indeed! A BIG thank you to Charlette, whose name I saw on the package that showed up in my mailbox yesterday. I was so busy getting things set up at Mum’s retirement home that I could not open it till very late last night. When I finally pulled it from my bag at the end of the day, it added much pleasure to another very difficult day. Your gesture touched my heart, Charlette! ♥
You can see that a certain someone is also most appreciative of the kind gesture... : )
Another nice thing happened to me yesterday. I WON the draw over at Pamela’s blog, here at Needle Tatting and Other Nonsense. I jumped at the chance to win one of this designer’s fabulous tatted pieces.
Pamela’s blog was one of the first tatting blogs I found back when I didn’t know the difference between a shuttle and a needle, let alone anything about something called a split ring or an HDT! I fell in love with her designs as I found them simple enchanting. Go have a look if you do not know what I mean. She is the best!
Then, get this! I hardly ever buy a lottery ticket, but a stranger advised me to buy one for the largest draw in Canadian Lottery history last week worth a staggering $50,000,000. I thought the words might just be a sign...
Well. I suppose they were, for when I went to check the numbers at the kiosk (I had already looked online and knew I had missed the big one, where I had a one in twenty million chance of walking away with the biggie) and the machine told me I had won something. I was so excited! Oh yah. I won a free ticket.
Hmmm. $50,000,000 ------------------- a free ticket. Hmmmmmm.
The Universe sure works in strange and often wryly ironic ways!
I’ll gratefully take what I get and give many, many thanks! : ))
