White Wednesday

I have been terribly absent in blogland lately but I promise my thoughts have been here. I hope your holidays were overflowing with blessings! We enjoyed our time together but our entire family is recovering from a virus. Now that we are somewhat on the mend, I had to show you what I awoke to on Christmas morning. Mr. Spoils-Me-Rotten (Mr. Blessing) managed to get one of Rebecca Ersfeld's breathtaking lace shades that I've been drooling over for the past month. It arrived scrumptiously wrapped in a vintage tablecloth with the prettiest bow...
He even got it installed lickty-split despite the fact that it involved changing out sockets and adding gizmos.
Several years ago our pastor said that strong marriages are built when each of the individuals think that they got the better deal. I'm sure it's not a surprise to most of those who know us but I unequivocally got the better deal in this partnership!
Resolution #1 for 2011: to give more than I'm given.

  1. I am sorry that you all were ill over the holidays. My oldest daughter was sick with the flu. We did not get to do all of our normal activities. We did manage to spend a lot of quiet time together though. Hope you all are feeling much better. Carla
