don't know if it is a charmed life, but its better than sitting in a pile of manure
While attending my grandparents' 70th wedding anniversary party today, our family got to spend time with some of our Very. Favorite. People. On. Earth. I received a very kind compliment from my aunt. She follows my blog and is impressed at the life I am giving to my family. She went on to say that she liked the way I write and that my words paint a picture of a charmed life. Her sweet words truly melted my heart and I thanked her from the bottom of my heart. But in a quiet honesty told her, "Eh, I have just become really good at polishing turds."
I am so glad you stopped by. I hope you will find something here that makes you laugh or that you can relate to somehow. I love to read comments and encourage you to leave one. Also, if you are at all interested in sewing/crafts, visit my other blog, too. Sew....what now?
