WOYWW # 181

The is going to be a record short post for my WOYWW#180!!  I have a lot of things on my mind right now, mainly people.  For me, this is what this is all about, People.  I make cards for people, and I try to make really beautiful ones to make people smile.  My hope is if I make you a beautiful card, you will see that you are important to me, and that if you open the card I have something important to tell you.   Right Now my friend Victoria and her family in Ashdod are on my mind and thank you readers for praying for their safety, I heard from Victoria this am they are safe right now, She even posted on my blog.  Blogs are part of normal, and when bombs are going off around you normal is something you crave.  I know I lived through my house burning down, normal in crisis becomes totally awesome! 

On my work desk today:  My books of people, these are my treasures, names and addresses and records, people, my world that matters, the people of my life.  and when I am done posting I will sleep and tomorrow make cards and work and food shop and be with the people I am so blessed to have in my life.  My life, my prayers, my mail, my Internet.  With all these blessings I can say thank you Lord for making my life so rich and sweet!
Happy WOYWW#181 and Have a wonderful thanks giving!

Great looking desk and I love all those books. I feel that in abnormal times the normal folk become extraordinary folks. We seem to rise to the call and do what it takes to get things done. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving and everything turns out okay for your friend! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #2

Happy WOYWW! What a wonderful post! I really identified with what you said because that is what my craft work is about - people. I make things for the people in my life and that is what I really hope for when they get those gifts - that they see how much I love them and what they mean to me. I hope your friends stay safe - I will be thinking of you and them. I have experienced a crisis or two, and you are right - normality is awesome at those times! Hugs xxx Laura #51

I'm a sucker for a beautiful notebook..have to have it, on the basis that it deserves to be filled with stuff...and mostly that stuff is day to day normal stuff about or for the people in my life. Shopping lists, gift lists, addresses, birthday books..you got it. Great post. And your friend Victoria - strong in my thoughts.

A short but beautiful post - a sentiment well put. Love your collection of notebooks ... I have a very similar collection too, filled with all sorts of information and lists, addresses and quotes, random thoughts and goodness knows what all else. I sometimes think life would grind to a halt if I didn't have a notebook by my side to note the important stuff of life. Hope you had a good WOYWW. Elizabeth x #112
