Good morning dear friends ..

Tuesday, October 06, 2020

Thank you all for your support .. your prayers and well wishes ..
My nephew had his radiation scan yesterday to tattoo the areas for treatment .. I pray the combined treatments begin this week .. too much time has passed its time to get serious and shrink the tumour .. Dennis's attitude and approach to his recovery and wellness remains positive, prepared and strong.
Your prayers are so very much appreciated and valued .. we all know the power of prayer .. thank you ... thank you

Friday my daughter and I worked with divine guidance .. the two of us accomplished far more than we ever expected .. I had prayed all the way to the house that all of the souls that acquired these treasures be in attendance as she and I prepared to clear dressers, desks and cupboards to supply the family of a fire with what we could .. the work was not work at all but a labour of love .. things were organized and grouped so that when they arrived Sunday at 9am the move would go smooth ..
we were packed and ready ..
table and chairs in garage
2 hideabeds
1 easy chair ..
coffee tables
2 beds
4 dressers
a mountain of bedding .. towels and kitchen towels .. dish cloths and pot holders ..
pots pans .. bowls ..baking dishes and sheets
and moms beloved blue rose Corell set of dishes .. she love blue roses ..
12 piece setting of each glasses , plates, salad bowls , sandwich plates ,dessert dishes , tea cups and saucers ,coffee mugs
my momma truly loved her blue rose set of dishes ..
now they would be appreciated and enjoyed by this family of 9
amen

while searching through a dresser I discovered my moms collection song books .. of music .. of words to songs .. dating back to early 1940's I'm sure .. she had written in her own handwriting the words to songs she heard on the radio .. armed with pencil and paper .. ear to the staticky old radio she would listen and write .. then she would try to play the tune on her guitar .. the collection I found was huge .. I also found her electronic harp .. I knew in an instant who should have these .. Kelly and Del the couple that sang at moms service .. along with guitar strings .. picks .. tuners .. harmonicas .. I delivered all of these treasures to them Saturday morning ..
they were in awe .. Kelly couldn't believe the gift of the electronic harp .. she said her grandma used to play one .. we visited for a bit then Del and I walked to my truck .. all of a sudden there was the most beautiful harp music coming from their home .. dang I couldn't help but tear up ..

Oh by all means my dear momma was thrilled .. she was so so happy with me and how I was sharing her treasures

I spent the day at home Saturday .. cleaning my garage .. putting the liner down to catch the snow that the tires of my truck will drop in the garage soon .. organizing my garden veggies for easy access in the cold storage under the step .. I organized the pantry in the garage .. did a bit of an inventory to see how prepared I am .. then organized the deep freeze to prepare for farm turkeys and chickens .. i quit buying my kids large gifts for Christmas .. now I buy them food all year long .. split a farm pork or beef with my son .. my daughter raises them .. share my canning and garden stuff .. then just prior to Christmas I will make their favourites .. cabbage rolls .. pirogies .. lasagna ... pies and cookies .. needless to say the day was fantastic .. productive and heart warming ..

Sunday I was up bright and early and on the road by 7:30 ..
the move went well .. the family was so happy to receive our love offering ..
they were so thankful as was I to make sure moms things would be sued and valued ..

after they left a friend of mine from years ago came to pick through the small items .. old toys from the 40s .. glass bottle collection .. etc .. he found some treasures and paid me 150 that I will use to feed and water my daughter and I as well as our clean up crew in the future ..

As I was leaving .. moms neighbour Kim came to chat .. I've always loved Kim and her hubby .. they moved in to the house next to mom after my great aunt ( my grandma's sister ) passed away .. Kim and Jay have always taken good care of mom.. grass .. snow .. visits .. check up on her daily .. I always bought them gifts for doing so .. they provided such a great peace for me knowing they were keeping an eye out for mom .. then after mom moved away ... they watched her property as their own ..
the lot that their house is situated on is an odd shaped piece of land to say the least ... they only own about 20 feet behind their house .. just enough room for a deck and 4 huge evergreen trees ...
the rest of the empty space probably a quarter of an acre was listed on moms title .. years ago I mentioned to my bother that Kim and Jay should have this piece of land .. well he said it must be worth at least 5K .. hmm
needles to say I never even mentioned it to them
well on Sunday when I visited with Kim I asked her if she was interested in adding the land to her the title .. how much she asked ..
how be .. you hire and pay for the surveyors .. you pay to have the titles changed .. all the admin and legal fees .. and it is yours ..
tears again ..
another .. "yes this is the right thing " ..
I could feel it in my soul ..
so once the title has been issued in my name only we will begin the process of adjusting the measurements ...
amen
wow what a few days ..
I took yesterday to catch up at home .. regroup and rest .. I was pooped .. but I'm rip roaring and ready to head up to the house soon to organize and pack .. everything that we can donate we will .. the collectibles will go to on line auction end of this month ..

I have a pottery class tonight .. so I had best not get too tuckered out ..

then tomorrow I need to get on the campaign trail .. a dear friend is running for mayor of our city .. in the past 5 years the Canadian federal liberal government has bypassed the provincial level and actually struck up agreements with cities that will lose their industries .. oil .. gas .. coal mines .. power stations .. even with carbon capture that is rated second to none in the world .. the PM of this great country is an enemy of the people
Our country is headed in a nose dive to socialism ..
A city council the is striking deals with the devil .. that once all industry and businesses are closed and gone .. this city will become a sanctuary city ..
not going to say anymore .. but I will say these closed door deals make my blood boil ..( I will and can help others in anyway I can )
.. charity starts at home .. by making sure we have viable businesses to hire and to create the economy required to sustain the population ..
everyone my circle wants to work ..
is not prepared to sit and be handed a scrap or a crumb .. by a socialist government ..
politicians like this are the true virus ...
I believe that what is happening in the world is a test .. using fear to control and rule ..

As for me and my house .. we will worship the Lord thy God .. we have faith .. not fear ..

oops how to sam did that sneak out ..
well thats who I am ..
real ..

have the most delicious .. low calorie off the charts kinda day .. create some light .. some laughter ..and a whole lot of love in your life and in everyone you come in contact with .. we can become a virus of all that is good .. just .. and true ..

xoxo
Donna

    So wonderful to share with the poor family and then see that others
    can also benefit by your generosity. It seems we have much the same
    issue with our government as you do. Not sure where all of this will end.
    Stay safe and take care.

    You are a very busy and generous lady! I'm sure your gifts of the harp and the land, as well as the household items and furniture donation to the family in need will make your mother quite proud.

    You have been so busy again my friend. Loved reading about your mothers music. So nice you delivering those finds to people who need and appreciate them. It is Christmas for everyone one now with the gifts you are giving. Glad her harp will still play.
    Prayers for your Nephew that they will start treatment quickly. Pray all goes well for him.
