I AM SO BLESSED AND A WEEK OF SURPRISES

Love, Laughter and Friendship Always Welcome Here

Good Morning Folks, sorry I didn't make it here yesterday.  I had good intentions yep, I sure did but so many wonderful things have happened to me this week I just never got here..First, Monday afternoon I was laying on the couch taking a little break and there was a knock at my door...when I opened the door there was a man and a woman standing there, the woman said "are you Linda Rogers", I said "yes I am", she said "I have a special delivery letter for you", now my mind was going a mile a minute, I thought I didn't know there was such a thing as special delivery here, and I thought "Oh no what's happened now". This woman had a notebook type thing and a pen in her hand,she looked very professional..and she just kept standing there,I was thinking "why is she still standing there, is she waiting on a tip"..I looked at her again, and I thought "she looks kinda familiar", and then it hit me, and I yelled GRANNY, she laughed and said yes...for those of you who don't know Granny, she is a dear friend at Scrapbook Max. She lives in California and she and her husband are on a trip to Tennessee to visit his family. They will be celebrating their 35th anniversary on August 11th..On the way across country they have been stopping to meet friends from SBM..and she also brought me a check that my friends at SBM had made up for me when Andrew passed..they stayed over night in Gadsden and we went for breakfast on Tuesday morning.  I enjoyed the visit so much and I am so happy I got to meet Granny and her husband Dan. They left here headed for North Carolina to make another surprise visit..oh what fun that must be..I would love to meet all of my on line friends..wouldn't that be wonderful..

I didn't get much sleep Monday night so when Granny left I thought I would take a little nap, I was almost asleep when my mother called me..she said you got some mail here I had to sign for. I said open it...she started saying oh my gosh, oh my gosh, and started telling me what was in the letter...it was the money from the sale the wonderful designers at DSO had for me..my heart was beating so fast I thought I might pass out..I tell you folks I knew I had a lot of friends on line but never dreamed the response to the sale would be what it was...so here I am feeling in one hand like the most blessed person in the world and in the other feeling so unworthy of all that has happened..

I went to the Thesaurus to see what other words there were to try and express my feelings, it said thanks, appreciation, appreciativeness, gratefulness, gratitude, thankfulness so people I feel all those toward all of you out there who made all the wonderful things happen for me. I know you must have the biggest hearts of anyone.

I got to go and see my precious little Kaylin yesterday..my mother was so thrilled at seeing her..she held her and gooed to her....LOL and I got to feed her and change her diaper and she just stared at me when I talked to her..She has a big sister who is 20 months old and Ashley has her hands full..I'm hoping in a week or so she will need a break and let me get them..LOL

I have another picture of her today, this time with her daddy...I just love it..

SAMPLE

My friend Silva at BooLandDesigns made this wonderful Kit called Ambient Moment.

I Just love it, it has such beautiful papers and elements and quick pages..I asked her if I could use some of them to make a freebie..I am so proud of the way it turned out..Although I don't know why it showed up on a black background, it was just the frame and picture..

I liked it so much I thought you might like to have it also
