His eye is on the sparrow, so I know He watches me!

It's amazing where life can take us and how things fall into place. Hubby and I listed our home for sale and had two offers within 24 hours of listing. God is so good. We moved into our new home last month and life is so sweet again.

I live near one of my best friends now and she invited me to a paint party. I had the most fun and as you can see, I painted a goat for my daddy. I told him to hang it in his 'man cave' and that is where he now resides. I would definitely do this again.... just what I need, another hobby!
|Letters from Mama|
As I was unpacking boxes, I ran across these letters from my mama. We moved away from "home" back in 1997. These are letters she wrote to me in 97-98, before she bought herself a computer. In the letters, she is trying to decide if she wants a computer or not, and I had been convincing her that she needed to buy one so that we could email, and not have to wait on 'snail mail.' I'm so glad she didn't have a computer that year, or I would not have these treasures from her now. I sat down and read them all before I went to bed one night. I giggled a lot, cried a little, and thoroughly enjoyed my 'visit' with Mama through her letters. I don't have ANY of our emails, but I do have a lot of messages from Facebook. Letters are precious. And the sticky note is one that was inside one of my letters... I love her handwriting.
And another reason I'm so happy, is that not only did we move back 'home', but I am HOME again! I had left my full time job for a little part time job, but hubby and I decided it just isn't necessary. So I am truly HOME again. I love Monday mornings.... my slow time, to blog, to clean up from the weekend, to do things on MY schedule. I am so truly thankful and feel that God has blessed me tremendously. Not only do I have a new home, but I can now enjoy being home. There is still so much unpacking to do, but I am looking forward to getting into my new sewing room soon. I have one baby quilt to make that is long over due... Sweet little Rae is 10 months old now. We have another sweet girl on the way (my niece, Holly's), so she will need a quilt very soon. I am so excited to know that I will get to it soon! More pic's of the sewing room next post!
