... Quite possibly the BEST GIFT EVER!
Sorry. I'll stop yelling now. But I'm still really excited. The minister's new wife, is a really neat person- a Presby turned DOC by marriage and we love her dearly... She's open, easy to talk to, and has adapted quickly from having 2 boys at home to having 3 girls and 2 boys at home. We've talked about a little bit of everything, and I am glad to call her a friend.
For fixing a monstrosity (fills up a large garbage bag) of crinoline, and doing some teeny alterations for her and the kiddos, as in an afternoon, I was gifted/traded a serger! Excitement? HECK YES!
On a more spiritual/cerebral note, I realized yesterday how blessed we are to have those of an older generation among us. Our church is very inter-generational, and we celebrate that on a weekly basis with a communion service every Wednesday night where anyone and everyone is able to come to the table and to share thoughts and concerns. The times I love the most are those where I get to sit around and hear the STORIES. And see what a blessing these people are, educating us all in the way that only they can.
