I went into the first store---outside was this young and very sweet tall and gangly African American boy---ringing the bells for the Salvation Army---singing Christmas songs with the biggest smile and the voice of an angel--I stopped and listened for a moment and said to him---Bless you for Ringing the Bell sweet child---and he hugged me and said Merry Christmas! Blessing number 1
Then I proceeded into the next store---I was at the checkout lane standing in line and I saw this old couple walk by holding hands---and when I say old I mean they were in their 80's---with this look of complete and udder love and happiness for each other and very smartly dressed---I noticed them stop to look at something---here it was this young boy---about 6 or 7 years old---whistling Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer---with a look of enchantment and joy on their faces ----he and his two other siblings and his mother came into the very line that I was in---and he continued to whislte away---I reached my hand out to touch the top of his head and smiled at him---he was so sweet. Blessing number 2
Then the last store I went into---I was wandering around for what seemed like HOURS looking for where in the heck one would put the Wax Paper if one were a stock person who even knew what wax paper was---I kept passing this woman pushing this cart full of stuff---she was a bit overweight and had the most happy and sweet rosey cheeks and pretty smile and was struggling to even walk----she says to me---you look like you are lost---to which I replied---I think I may be---I just wanna find Wax Paper and get the heck out of here---she says---and mind you ---she is not an employee at this store---I can take you there--so she does and it is quite a ways away from our original destination--and I say to her---awwww thank you---I think I need to take you with me the next time I go shopping!! She says to me with MUCH delight---that would be just fine---as I have no one---I hugged her and wished her a Merry Christmas---Blessing number 3
We go to Mass on Christmas Eve---and the Church is packed FULL---there are parents coming in with their children all dressed up---I had the best time before mass started--looking at all the children in their fineries--as I totally remember those days when my kids were young---so dang CUTE. As luck would have it---the Childrens choir was singing---during Mass---Silent Night---tears came strolling down my face as I sat and reflected on the things that I previously mentioned---and at that VERY moment I finally got the warm and fuzzy feeling that I had waited and wondered about---and that my dear friends---that was my Blessing number 4----

Hello My Dear Blogger Friends~~~ I am so excited I can hardly stand it---I have been driving myself nuts as of late--short trip I know---but I am working on a new line of bath and beauty---I have just wrapped up this week with my 16th batch of soap in 10lb logs that need to be cut~~ I am working towards making a new emergence in the natural soap world by cutting the bars to reflect a better size and feel, more homeopathic essential oil based soaps, natural colorings, new packaging and soap set offerings---a better wholesale line and and and----I am making LOTION now too---who knew it was gonna be so darn FUN----I made my own Sweet Annie Oil and have made lotion using that oil---OMG--if you like the smell of Sweet Annie--which has alot of great attributes you will LOVE this lotion! I have gathered all of my implements to put allllll of this together and with any luck (if my family just lets me FLY without any debacles til MONDAY) I will have this up and running---fingers crossed and duct tape ready to use on anyone in this house that messes with this grand plan! Can you feel the determination or WHAT! I can't sore with the Eagles if I am flyin' with the Turkey's---a metaphor for the day!

I am running a little sale in my Etsy--free shipping on mittens until Valentines Day (US ONLY sorry!)--do check that out---they really are wonderfully warm and fashionable!
To all of you sweet tarts that have been emailing me about the window pattern--thank you so much for being so patient with me---I am having some issues with my reformatting into pdf files---I really wish I knew why---so I had to call in the big guns to help untangle the mess that I have created with alllll of my pattern files----yup----never a dull day here! Just wanted to let you know though---
It has been below zero here for the past two weeks---let's not even factor in a little ditty we lovingly call WIND CHILL---and while I am not complaining---aww heck--YES I AM---I have never hated winter as much as I do this particular year---and I am a winter girl---so I have figured out that being in menopause is really messin with me---hot flashes and all and I am now resorting to being happy not really going anywhere---anytime---sooooo if the people that reside here are thinking that grocery shopping is in the near future--well they better start saying their prayers that it gets above freezing soon---cuz this chick is staying PUT ---I don't really mind pb&j sandwiches----nope!
