Again I do see I've gotten a few page views. But would LOVE some comments... love to hear from other real humans!!! And please don't forget about my other blog, The View From Here... be sure to visit there as well (link on right, hint, hint :-) )... and comments and encouragement would be MOST welcome.
I know I don't post here that often it seems, but here's something pretty neat I thought should be shared. It was just this past Halloween when my neighbor called and said some neighborhood kids had been out throwing pumpkins and had dented my mailbox. Indeed they had - and it was now also tilted it on its pedestal and it was getting ever harder for me to even open it.
A new mailbox was certainly indicated if not a real necessity. Then I thought ---- "I have one in my garage," I told my neighbor. He promised to check if it was still ok after quite some years.
You see, the prospective mailbox was given to my Mom by her nephew some years ago. Mom was grateful, of course, but since we already were using one, we just never switched. And after my parents both passed away, I didn't either.
But guess what? Maybe that gift was just waiting for the right time. My neighbor cleaned it up a bit and --- it finally got installed today - ummm I guess now it was yesterday (Saturday)! It looks great. Take away? I guess we never really know sometimes when what we give or something we do might really be useful or bear fruit. Another example, months later I got a wonderful e-mail from Dr. Frisby after sending her a message of support. Dr. Frisby is the faculty member mentioned in this post from TVFH which has a link to her statement. Notice a link to Alexandra Franzen's site at the right? She has a wonderful post there - "It All Matters." I receive her newsletter and believe it or not, the issue with that link in it came within no more than a day of receiving Dr. Frisby's e-mail (can you say synchronicity?)!
Anyway, what we give, do, say may blossom... whenever!
