    Default The best ever Birthday gift!

    So yesterday was my Birthday...just another day... work was not nice... (details in morning thread of my day) Hubby is not into any celebrations or shopping he is a " you handle the money get what you want type of guy" I rarely take him up on get myself something. Money is tight and we need to pay bills that accumulated while he was out of work for 2 years and this year too much rain has made his job slow. My son brought me the mail today and my mouth about dropped to the floor. Tears were running down my face. I got the sweetest and most generous package in the mail today from our dear forum friend Bubby. Barb is truely an angel. I can not even begin to express my feelings when I opened this package. Barb Thank you so much for being the sweetest , kindest mos generous friend ever.

    Here is what was in the package. I would have been over the moon happy and content with the chickie coaster. But the fabric is to die for and in my colors and sewing related! These are not fat quarters but full yard of each.
    Hugs again and thanks Barb

    Bubby's kindness makes me believe there are angels here on earth! I read the morning post about the not-so-happy day yesterday. So here's the cake you deserved (sorry it's a day late.)

    April I was doing the happy dance for you! Yes, there are angels on this forum and Barb is one of them.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.
