I thought today we'd depart from all the heavy stuff and just have a little fun. Can you remember flying kites as a child? We never had kites but I used to enjoy watching kids in town fly their kites when we came to the city once a month. There was a park by my uncle's house where there was a hill. It was the perfect place for launching a kite and on Saturday kites rode over that park on the warm breezes.
I can't wait to tell all of you about the surprise that I received last night from my beautiful friend, Denise at Samaritan Women. In my meme the other day, I mentioned liking pickle sandwiches. When I was a child, Mom used to send me pickle sandwiches to school. They were on white bread with just a little butter. I think the reason for pickle sandwiches is that we had no meat or other things to put on a sandwich, so Mom had to make do. We never knew that we were short on sandwich makings. Our parents never told us these things. I wasn't something a child needed to know. Well, I LOVED pickled sandwiches and thought it a real treat when I found one in my brown paper lunch bag.
Anyway, last night Denise left me a comment that she had something for me on her blog. And this is what it was:
Denise, I absolutely LOVE IT! I know it was made especially for me and I got such a good laugh out of it. Since I was feeling a little blah last night, it brightened up my evening and I felt a lot better. Thank you for making this for me. If any of you ladies like pickle sandwiches, I hope you will take a copy for your blog. I know I'm not the only one who likes them, so display this proudly. Denise, since you also love pickle sandwiches, I'd love if you would add this to your sidebar. Holly and Katie at The 2 Sister's are having a Valentine's Giveaway. This is what the girls have to say:

My new friend, Brandy at Mommys Quiet Spot is celebrating her birthday today. Please follow the link to her site and wish her a wonderful day. Brandy, here's a card bringing you wishes for a very Happy Birthday.
Karen at Karen's Korner has presented me with The Blessings Award. Thank you, Karen. I'm very honored. The blessing is as follows:
The idea…it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for 3 blog friends. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you receive a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world.
Now, I am to pass this Award on to 3 ladies.
This is very difficult as all of my blogging friends are a blessing to me. So, because I want you all to have it, I'm passing it on to all of the people who regularly stop by and visit me. Congratulations! You all touch my life in a very special way.
Well, that is all the news from here today. I wish you all a great day. ~Blessings, Mary~
