    I have been using my nieces sewing machine for the last two years. On SSI there has been no funds for "fun" things like sewing machines (or as I would say a BASIC LIFE NECESSITY). I am moving in just a couple weeks and was worried.. what will I do with my time? sewing is my entertainment. Well, last night my girlfriend called and told me "Now don't get mad at me.." then proceeded to share that she had just left Sears and had bought me a new machine, nothing fancy but its new. MAD? I AM GOING TO BE MAD? uh.. nope not mad! I was so excited and when I picked it up today it made me cry. That was such a kind and thoughtful for the heck of it gift which means the world to me. I can continue to keep busy. I am in my own little heaven right now. Tomorrow, I pull it out and test it. OH and this Friday is free fabric day (fabmo.org) here near where I live and I am set to snag a bunch more fabric before I go. Several quilters are bringing fabric for me so I will have a good stash to leave with. I feel so fortunate. I am so fortunate. This is one GREAT day.

    She is one special lady. I met her when I posted for donations for cat food/litter for my rescue. She buys hundreds of dollars of medications/vaccinations/supplies for me every year. Her husband will not allow any pets so she loves to come play with my baby kitties. I told her she is my angel.

    "To have a friend, you first must be one"...you must be a wonderful woman to have such a wonderful friend!

    So....when are you moving, why are you moving, and when are you going? (Inquiring minds wanna know and all that! ;) )

    It is a blessing to have such a friend true........however, she is blessed to have someone who will let her be blessed by accepting a gift. Have you ever tried to do something nice for someone and they either dont want to accept it or wont accept it. It truly is more blessed to give than receive...however, by receiving graciously you are also giving a blessing. GOOD for both of you.
