A nice surprise

Wednesday, February 27, 2013



This flower arrangement was given to me by a Mexican family who we engage from time to time to do projects for us and are the family that we take out to dinner every year for Christmas and celebrate with them. They are a very hard working people and a wonderful family. The Mother and daughter took a bus all the way from the next village over and brought this with them for me. It brought tears to my eyes as they spent their hard earned money on me. I feel guilty. Yes, I know that we are good to them and all but I kind of wish they didn't spend so much of their hard earned money on me. It is so very touching though that they remember my birthday. So very sweet.

So the steak dinner did catch up. I was up a half pound today after eating light yesterday....but not a problem at all as I was 109 which still is one pound under goal. I will continue to eat light and right again today.

I do hope all my sparks buddies have a terrific Wednesday. I am going to see when I walk the dogs if I will be able to drive down the road today to go to the outdoor market. Yesterday the road was closed as they were replacing the cobblestones after tearing up the road for new water pipes. So if all is good I will be off to the fresh market today in search of yummy fruits and veggies.
Do have a fantastic day!
Sallie

    Beautiful floral arrangement. You have to allow other people to have the joy of giving to you. Hard lesson to learn, when you are used to being the giver, but necessary.

    Sallie, don't feel bad about the money they spent on flowers. They love you enough to sacrifice their hard earned money to make you feel special. They would not want you to feel bad. They are beautiful, the flowers and the family. Bless them and bless you.

    What lovely, generous people, Sallie - and that floral arrangement spells "HAPPINESS"! (or maybe "ˇFELICIDAD!" :). They really love you, and you couldn't have found a more flattering space for it than that gorgeous fireplace (love the painting, too!). Hope the road is okay...I know how good that produce is! Enjoy! I never worry about your weight; you have really outstanding control of it! emoticon
