~ Blessings


Today is a grand day
1.  Last year I was victim of check fraud 5 people stole thousands of dollars from me and  from a few other folks in this area -from our mail boxes that are located on our roads....which is part of the rural charm here in the country. These guys hit the jack pot with me- they stole my whole check box newly ordered from the bank that I never received. For weeks they wrote out checks in my name, had fake drivers licenses made in my name ...all this locally.
I can't express how violated I felt- as if my identity was null and void.
Yesterday the case closed.
She/they pled guilty and have to pay restitution.
2. Visiting Norway this summer- I found out in a very "horrible" way my mamma had cancer. She was in hospital most of the time we were visiting. Needless to say we were all devastated.  She has healed completely and today I am picking her and her husband up at the airport to stay with us for 2 weeks.  If that isn't great enough- she is pondering upon moving to Montucky..so we will be looking at homes while she is here.
Good grief! Does it get any better???????
It's been a hard year - but today...well today, I am smiling from ear to ear. 

Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you.
