Three Beautiful Things Tuesday!

I have been dreadfully delinquent on my Three Beautiful Thing Tuesday - in fact, (gasp!) the last TBT post I did was in OCTOBER! Oh my - Guess I'd better get cracking here!

For new readers, the object is to find Three Beautiful Things about each day. It causes us to focus on the good, when there is so much evil and ugly happening in the world (was it always that way, or do we maybe we just hear about it more easily now with TV and the internet?) The original Three Beautiful Things blog is written by a woman named Clare who lives in Kent (UK, not WA). She reminds us that it is not important to have a HUGE thing be beautiful, small things often have more impact.

My Three Beautiful Things for today are:



  • Watching the joy that my friend (who raised three sons) gets from playing with her not quite two year old granddaughter.

  • The gals at my favorite sub shop who made my sandwich today "just the way I like it" without any direction from me.

  • Getting the notice this a.m. that our Washington Wool.net benefit auction raised over $4000 for the Black Sheep Creamery - Awesome, just awesome! (and I got that beautiful green & lavender purse that Sharon made)

I was just over at Sharon's blog, admiring some more of her bags. Every one of them is gorgeous. So glad to hear the auction was so successful (and still kicking myself for missing it. )

You can add another $45 to that sum Miss Peach raised with her coat of many colors bracelet auction! I also have an order for another so the total will increase again!! YEAH for the Gregories!
I will need to know where to send al the green papers once they arrive from Austraila:)
I admired that bag also with those colors because they are my favorite!

Trees

(1)

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
(2)

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

(3)

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

(4)

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

(5)

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with the rain.

(6)

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.
