Hi Ladies: It is White Wednesday and I blew it. I hate to miss days like this. I am so sorry. I have been a little busy. By the way, The thing I was so worried about, that was going to happen Tuesday, came out fine. I feel that I even got a miracle. I do promise to tell you about it one day. Just not ready for all the emotions right now. Thank you for praying for me, God answered. You are the best. Now all I have to do is get though tomorrow's fast and the "drink". I feel like God has told me there would be no more "mass" so, I just going to believe Him. Surgery scheduled 7:00 am Friday morning.

Today, I had lunch with my friend Sharon who just had eye surgery. She is doing very well and it was a great time together. On the way home from her house, I passed my favorite Thrift Store. I only go to that store when I am in Burbank, visiting her. So, I just had to stop. It would have been a sin not to, don't you think? Anyway, as luck would have it, I found a few things. Did I ever tell you I collect green depression glass? I also collect the cranberry depression glass, which is harder to find. I know I have told you I collect tea cups. Well, I love to give high tea parties. You can't have high tea without the small silver butter knives! I was lucky enough to have found some of those as well, to add to my growing collection. Then, there was the Vaseline Glass roaster, I found. It was a lot of excitement for my little heart, but I some how managed. (LOL) I took some pictures of my treasures and some, of the new look for February around my little home!

On the way home from the thrift store, I stopped at a friend's house for about 10 minutes. She has breast cancer and just needed hugs. So, since hugs are free and fun, she got one. Last but not least, I went to church to decorate for February. Like my home, the church gets a monthly make over. I love doing that! So, I am a little tried, and need to rest for Wednesday night service.

Many of you have written and told me you are going though hard times right now. I want to just remind you that, God's mercies are new every morning. So, if you are having a bad day today, tomorrow will be better, He promised. Blessings and hugs to all. Martha

I'm in agreement with others as we lift you up in prayer on Friday. Your day was a full one, no wonder you were tired and needed to put your feet up. Thanks for sharing your finds.
Hugs and glitter, Patti

You are a very sweet soul, Martha. I'm glad Tuesday went better than you'd thought. I belong to a big prayer line, should you ever need lots of prayers. It takes me but a minute or two to add your name and prayer request.

Is cranberry depression glass different than ruby glass? It's all so pretty!

Oh sweetie, don't apologize for being one busy woman. I had to pull back and I only post about once a week. A large workin' farm is a busy and demanding place.

I just wanted to thank ya'll for your visit and hoppin' on my blog. I sure hope ya enjoy the ride! Know that your on my mind and in my prayers. Isn't it just great when God gives you that peace and you know that you know it's gonna be alright!
