Today is the beginning of the holiday weekend and I'm feeling accomplished!
- I sent out almost all of your orders, (thank you so much for your support and excitement about my new website!)
- Then this morning I finally went for my annual physical!! I hate going to see doctors which is why when I do without being prompted by being sick, I feel so good about myself!
- I've written two out of the 5 instruction guides that have been sitting to the left of my computer. I know they are inanimate objects, but I swear they were sitting there with a frown, wagging their fingers at me.
- My house is sparkling clean and I'm about to leave to see our grandkids and of course Shiri.
Tomorrow is the 4th of July and on this day, every year, I remember what a wonderful country this is and how good it's been to me and my family. I'm not big on flag waving and external showing of patriotism, but let me tell you, I am in love with this country in a way that only an immigrant can be. I see what you, those of you who have lived here all their lives, do not see as clearly. This is a wonderful place with people who are so generous in spirit and in pocket. In 1991 I came here and 5 years later I had this idea that I could design needlepoint. I ventured and was immediately embraced by so many of you, encouraged and led to believe that I had something to offer. It continues, so many years later, and there is not a day that goes by that one of you does not tell me how much you appreciate what I bring to this needlepoint world of ours. You can't imagine what that means to an artist/designer. It's the ultimate. I believe there are many places where generous people live, but I believe that this is a place where people are proud to be generous!
Thank you for all that you have given me over the years and thank you, the United States, this wondrous country that you are!
