Now That's a Friend!

I finally posted my boxes for sale, and boy did I wait until the last minute... (I still have a few available but they are selling faster than I expected. :) 

Remember when I shared this post? It seems like just last week, but it's been well over an month since Gina came and helped me purge my stuff. This summer has been crazy with all the uncertainties of this relocation. ---crazy and frustrating... no FRUSTRATING.  I like things to go according to plan.  I have to have a plan. The older I get the more I plan and the more I realize that I have to be flexible. Realizing it doesn't make it easier to do. :) 
Amidst all the confusion and frustration, God took a moment or two to show me and help me to realize and experience true friendship.  This Gina, was amazing. She'd told me for a couple of months that she was coming to help me a project. Neither of us are very capable of sitting still very long so in that respect, we are two peas in a pod. The fact that we each multitask so well... LOL. Ok. I was going to be sarcastic. But I realize that most of you wouldn't get it. Gina and I are so easily distracted that it's not funny. Somehow, we managed to stay on task long enough each day to have accomplished a lot. I was amazed and incredibly overwhelmed with her generosity. We managed to add some fun into all the work too! She is a God-send.  It is in the toughest times in life that we find out who our true friends are. Gina is one of them!

This was the first card I created after we found the table top again. :) The stamps are a hostess set from Stampin' Up.  I won it when I became the first official follower of her new blog (Jayne Stamps) a couple of months ago.
Thanks again Gina!
