have to share...

Hey, guys...just want to share something with you. If you don't want to know anything personal then go ahead and move on to the next blog.

Today I was just heading into my kitchen when I saw someone walk up to the door. I thought it was Todd coming home for a quick break but it was our friend Al. Al and his wife Nancy are "adopted" grandparents for our kids here in WA. You see...Todd and I both know how important that grandparent relationship is and since their biological grandparents are so far away (1700 miles) we "adopted" grandparents for them here. Anyway, it was Al at my door with the absolutely lovely yellow/orange roses for ME!!! It is Rotary rose day here and he bought me these roses (he is in Rotary, too...double duty) and wrote the nicest card thanking me for doing a good job with my kids and the kids of our church. It brought tears to my eyes. Very sweet...very much needed.

Now...do you see the lovely lilies on the left. Those are from my sweet husband. Stargazer Lily's are my second favorite flower and although they are hard to find right now he brought me home these LOVELY day lilies. Do you not love them all blooming and wonderful?!

I am just too blessed. Thank you to both of these wonderful men...I am privileged to have you in my life!

Thanks for putting up with this break in craftiness...I'll be back tomorrow for my limeLIGHT sketch challenge and product challenge card AND you are going to LOVE it!

You are blessed! I'm sure that made your day! Today my husband called me at work and asked me if I could sneak out front of the office for a couple of minute. He said he had something for me. He's NEVER done that before. I thought it was kind of strange. I went out front.. He got out of his truck.. walked over to me and gave me a kiss.. Thats it.. He had a kiss for me.. It really made my day.
