An Attitude of Gratitude.

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you. ~John E. SouthardI am grateful beyond measure ~ To God for supplying my need; to Liddy for hassleing it when I'd given up; that on the last post day before we went away & the mail stops for our long weekend the magizines arrived. Now I get to take them away with me. Thank you Liddy!

They arrived in a big box to much excitement. I actually didn't even get to open my own parcel. Ditz & Liddy rushed to get her work knife to slit the wrapping & delved into the styrofoam.I had a lovely letter from Wisdom's Gate explaining their new proceedure for international subscribers & nearly 2 years worth of back issues! God is so good. It was almost worth the wait. :)

After the initial excitement Ditz wasn't so sure about this. After all, we're going away. She expects my attention & here I am with all this reading material. She suspects I will be tucked away somewhere warm & cosy reading for dear life & what will she do?

If I was sensible [not my strong suite :)], I would save them for the coming term when once again I will be found waiting all over the country on Ditz & her music but I have been without them for so long I really don't think I can wait that long & will greedily devour them before term starts. Short post. I have all these magazines waiting on my attention.

Have a wonderful time visiting with your Mum. I was supposed to go back to St Louis at the end of my knee surgery recovery time, to visit my oldest daughter Jennifer and the 2 grand-daughters for their birthdays (both in Feb). Who knows now? It'll all work out in due course, I can't control anything anyway so why not go with the flow? Enjoy your reading materials! I took a lot of magazines with me on our recent trip but only read one of them! I spent most of my time in the car crocheting a baby blanket for Jennifer's Bun in the Oven.

How lovely. How do you pick which magazine to read first?

SO glad these came. Lovely quote as well.

Hey, I'd be saving them so we'd make interesting housemates. :]
