Jingles says hello to one and all from the white wicker chair in my bedroom. She sleeps on Yusef's bed during the day and on the wicker chair at night.
I forgot to show you the pretty crocheted broach I bought the other nite at the Palestinian Exhibition. And you won't believe the wonderful gift I received today.
One of the young teachers at school who is Palestinian was going to the Exhibition last nite, so yesterday at school I showed her the things I had bought. I had worn the black and red beaded necklace and told her about the necklace I passed over, but that I just loved. A pink and taupe necklace. I walked into my office this morning and THERE IT WAS! I just gasped and ran to her classroom to tell her how wonderful she is and how thankful I am. Isn't it so special when we receive unexpected surprises!
My day started off to a good start with actual fresh, cool air outside this morning; no traffic on the way to school; and then the gift of the necklace. I am thankful for all those things today!
I am also thankful for the computer that allows me to stay connected with friends and family and to share in this wonderful world of blogging.
"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." (Albert Schweitzer)
So many wonderful bloggers out there are having giveaways, but alas, I live so far away -- for today, this is my giveaway.
Peace & blessings, Tammy
