Pamela's Daybook: May 2

Today: Today is Rhonda day -- she loosens me up so my neck doesn't creak every time I turn my head. I'm going to have to make my own sunshine, because there's no sun until Thursday.

At my writing desk: A little bit of this, a little bit of that...

In the mail: RB picked up our mail and woohoo -- three letters and a postcard. I saved them until I could sit and enjoy them.  Heather sent me this quote from Monet: "Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love."

Praying for: The family of a ten-year-old boy who found a gun and shot himself, and for the chaplain ministering to the family.

Thankful for: The sermon by Pastor Danny -- God Always Finishes what He Starts.

Creating: Emma and I worked on two projects Saturday. We also had a tea party with hot chocolate. Actually I didn't read the pods right and it was mocha. I didn't ask if she was bouncing off the walls when she got home.

I'm reading: Still reading "Eagle Tree" by Ned Hayes. You may have to use some filters, but for me it's been an important read. I've learned more about trees than I knew there was to learn. I have to force myself to put it down. In fact, it was in my purse calling to me yesterday afternoon at the Anderson Children's Choir and Youth Chorale. Three of my grandchildren were singing (singing beautifully, incidentally). I may or may not have been a tad bit bored when they sang in different languages.

Postmarking: I added a new member this week, and that's always exciting. We send 134 cards out last week. We have some heart-breaking needs this week, and I'm so thankful for my ladies who not only send cards, but pray for the recipients, too.

Favorite quote: 
"Buy the new book. Wear the old coat." Austin Phelps


  1. This is my first time visiting your site, and it has cheered me up already! I appreciate how you choose to dwell on the encouraging things of your week, and I love it that you are dedicated to sending encouragement to others the "old-fashioned" and very much loved way through the mail!

  2. When you are bringing your own sunshine, you are giving others the courage to do the same! Love that


  3. You are doing a great work with not only your cards, but also with the prayer. 134 is a lot! Glad you are adding new members!

  4. I am so sorry to hear about this loss. How sad :(
