Ain't I a Woman

Ain't I a Woman
Pearl of Great Price



On a recent visit my surrogate brother came bearing gifts.  He ordered me not to make a big deal over him, so I will not post his picture.  Now, my brother loves to cook and he has every kitchen gadget under the sun.  He gives me stuff for my kitchen too.  So he comes in with this big ole' box.  In the box there are many other boxes.  I got a rice cooker, a pressure cooker, a knife set, food thermometer, and knife sharpener.  I also got this blenderfoodprocesser like thing called the Ninja-  my brother was like " never heard of the ninja...where have you been?"  Let me just say...that thing is a beast!  I love it.  He had already instructed me to " this box last..."  When I opened the box it was a notebookipadtablet thingy!!!!  Wow!  See I have a desktop and usually haul craft supplies in my office to work on a project while watching USTREAM shows. Now I can  watch craft videos in my craft room or when I am really sick and have to stay in bed.  What a thoughtful and helpful gift.

I was also instructed not to cry, but I snuck off into the office and let out tears of joy.  What did I ever do to deserve such kindness.  The best gift was him telling me "..I just wanted to pour into you sometimes since you spend a lot of time pouring into others..."  Talk about give me my flowers while I am living.

I love all my gifts.  I love my brother...words cannot say how much. I do not love him because he looks out for me and gives me cool gifts, but I love him just because. 

And on top of that: while I was in the office I checked the e-mail and discovered that SOMEONE had paid my fee to attend an online class.  I am most grateful to the secret service giver (lol).  The tears of joy and thankfulness started to flow all over again.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.
