I wanted to tell you about four things that made me smile yesterday.
The first was a beautiful sympathy card my Mom’s doctor sent to Dad, which said:
“I am so sorry for the loss of your wife. She was a strong feisty woman, who fought until the end. I am sorry for your suffering with her loss, but I am grateful that she no longer suffers. She was lucky to have such a devoted husband and children. It was my honor and pleasure to care for her.” That made me smile as well as be thankful that there are actually some doctors who are also caring people.
The second was the beautiful Valentine’s Day card my cousin sent to me, along with the cutest sterling silver and stainless steel snowman mobile that I’d admired at her house over New Years. The body is a snowman and there are three snowflakes that dangle against it, making the nicest QUIET chime That made me smile, too as well as be thankful that I had such a sweet, kind, caring cousin!
The third is I finally got into the Beginning Jewelry class at a local adult education center: “…students will learn the principles of piercing, soldering, filing, making jump rings, stone setting and various ways in which to polish. Emphasis on design, measuring and layout is encouraged. Materials include copper, silver, brass, solder, stones, bezel wire, round wire, drill bits, saw blades, and more.” And Krista joined with me! This will be fun
Lastly, Dad was cleaning out a closet and found an old Scrabble game that belonged to my first ex-husband and me. Inside there was an anniversary card with scores written all over the back, and another sheet of paper that the ex had written on:
Janet quit because she was losing.
Yes, I’m quite aware that’s a very low score…does it help that the score on the back of the card was Blake: 269, me: 192?
