Helping Hands

Ever have one of those weeks when one thing has taken all your time and energy, and all the little details that seem to crop up just remain in the background as so completely trivial ?
We are experiencing that exact scenario for the past couple of weeks.... 
My Darling is undergoing some pretty major testing, and we are holding our breath, living day by day in God’s amazing grace- waiting to find out the results.
I know each and every one of you have had someone dear in their lives that at one time or another that had a situation & you just really didn’t know what to say. Let us reinforce the value of couple of old fashioned principles. 1. To just be there for them- maybe just for them to “vent” to you 2. Listen as they just pour their heart out or  3. Possibly just sit and hold their hand.....

This couple were married for 72 years..... Oh, SWEET !

We never know how the really simple things in life, the ones that are completely free, will bring the greatest rewards. True, they take our precious time, but when you can fuse into their day a joy that was not there before it is worth every second.
All of our family have gone out of their way to make sure we have all the bases covered, from mowing the yard, to feeding our hairy friends, to bringing food, making arrangements for every little thing- we could not ask for better friends or family.

Aubrie is holding down the fort at 107 Vintage.   She is dong an amazing job-and getting back with everyone as promptly as possible.  Shipping out merchandise, answering email, etc.  as well as working on design jobs we had in progress....even going out to clean our office when I was gone last week.
 I came back to a beautifully cleaned, and much more orderly office... ( we were about to completely revamp our offices and it looked like a hurricane went through at a very high rate of speed ).  I just walked in, looked around and promptly
began to cry !
Heart felt thanks go out to all of you wonderful people who are making this a little easier to bear. We love you all.

A twist in the Road

I apologize for the delay in posting and say a sincere thanks for those of you that give us a snippet of time each week to see what we are doing.
This past week has been a very difficult one for my Darling.
 Now after several days in the ICU, we have graduated to a shall we say a “regular “ room in the hospital.
We have had so many wonderful  friends and family putting their love into action for us over and over. They have been here with
with us to just sit and talk, bring a card or well wishes- and  even running out  to pickup a taco because I had  not gotten  to eat... We are truly blessed. 
We are in process of choosing a path that will lead to complete health for him so we may resume our life we love so much.....


 We are planning even now to resume our country jaunts, in which we meander slowly and stop just because it holds our interest. An opportunity waiting to unearth something of value from the past that we  love and  can possibly share with you.

We love our time together, making memories and  sharing special times. Tuesday is an opportunity to make it very special and I have my work cut out for me this year !   I will find a way to show my Darling  just how special he is even if it’s not quite the way ( OR PLACE )  we had planned. 

You think the nurses will mind all the glitter, glue and paper ?  

Have fun making your Valentine something straight from your heart, have a  Happy Heart  all weekend &  please keep us in your prayers.

We are sending special love your way today...
