Sometimes

I am just amazed at how God blesses us, even with little things that really don't matter in the big scheme of things....but just purely makes us happy.

I posted yesterday about my stack of doilies.  On Wednesdays, I go to Sew Sew Sisters here in the community.  We make things for centers that help various people....homeless, foster children, and sometimes things for us too.

One of the ladies was called by a former neighbor that she had some items she would like our group to go through and take if we wanted it.

I walk in the door and there was a stack of doilies.  I didn't want to pounce, so I sweetly asked....does anyone want these.  NO they all said.  "Can I have them?"...Go ahead!

Well, I tried not to start dancing and praising, so not to scare them....but I was inside.

I got 15 doilies and 1 round tablecloth.



Yep, Ceekay is  a happy girl!

Hi Ceekay, yes I understand this completely. Just good things He does for us, like we would want to do for our kids. Because He loves us. Love the doilies. I love them too.
Blessings,

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

Isn't that wonderful?
I find it amazing that no one else wanted them.
I went garage sale-ing last year and stopped at one sale...there were lots and lots of tables. I asked if they had any crocheted doilies? The lady asked doilies? why would you want those? She told me she didn't think people used doilies any more. I told her I collect/rescue them and still use them in the home.
I think she and I were both surprised at that conversation! LOL...:)

These are gorgeous! Pat
