A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

A Favorite Thing Saturday

Here is someone who greets our visitors at the front door each day. Her name is Goosey Lucy. I wrote a short piece about her just yesterday. She had a little repair work being done, so she could be dressed for the holidays. She came to live at my house many years ago. A gift from my son John..and his family. For a while she seemed to get so many outfits....I used to kid that she had more clothes than I did. Then one day last year, a visitor (a tiny mouse) crept into her box of clothes and nibbled a wee bit. A little hole here and another over there.....leaving her with a very small wardrobe. The little visitor didn't bother her Christmas attire, however. So right now...she has been bathed and touched up with paint. She stands ready in her Pocahontas costume for Thanksgiving and Christmas will be next. She stands proudly greeting people who go by and entertaining the kids in the neighborhood...who always ask, "When is Goosey Lucy going to change her outfit...and can I help?" She's one of my favorite things for Favorite Things Saturday. Why don't you go over to Claudia's and see some of the favorites of bloggers. Soon we will be showing lots of holiday favorites..

Goosey Lucy is looking pretty spiffy. So sweet how you change up her clothes ... and everyone knows it. I have a little bear that has different little sweaters for the holidays. In fact, I need to go find its Thanksgiving sweater. :) Best wishes to you, Tammy
