Monday's Blessing!

This morning I had a wonderful visit from a young woman I have known for a long time.  She came today bearing all her cleaning equipment.........and then proceeded to clean my whole house;  from top to bottom.... everywhere.  

I am overwhelmed with her labor of love!

I have done the chores that help Bill and I get by, so has he-I love to clean but not being able to run the big vacuum or bend and scrub sure does mean that the house is getting ahead of me!
I even fell asleep for a while and she kept working away........all day!
(She did let me give her a break for lunch and to share a small candy bar!)

Every little while, I would get to work with her on some chore-it was so encouraging to see the house get deep cleaned and have the pleasure of doing it with another woman!

Throughout the day I would cut a fat quarter into apple core pieces with the the end of the day, I had these cut and laid out but I will have to work on rearranging them tomorrow morning as I couldn't bend by the end of the day!  This scattered way gives the lay-out size and now I can organize which one goes where to look its best!  Remember, step by step the project gets done!


(PS-she gifted me my own Swiffer duster which has an extended handle-I will be able to reach so much without a step stool!--yippee!)


  1. What a lovely gift!
    I've just discovered the wonder of a Swifter myself. Those dusting sheets are perfect for clearing away all this indoor pollen the animals drag in. Your friend is an angel!

  2. How wonderful! I am so thankful for her tangible expression of love!

  3. I love how God sends us people when we need them most :)

  4. And she brings hugs from those far away. :)

  5. What a wonderful gift! Oh, and your quilt top looks very pretty!

  6. No need to thank me; you are very welcome. Anytime you need me I will come. Thanks for the great day!

  7. God bless you, Jessica, and thank you from a friend who can't do anything practical!

    Step by step is the best way, I agree. That's how I can cope with working on more than one project at a time -- if I have the right coloured thread in the machine and the pieces are ready to go, it all comes together so much better!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Not Sitting Around

 We are making a big change in the family room-out with the old dark brown couch and love seat and in with the nice light colored furni...
