Wonderful People

This is my second post today. I don't think I have ever done that, but this one could not wait til tomorrow. I have met some really wonderful people since I started this little blog. I have made a friend with someone who I consider a sister even. I really can't count the blogs I read on a regular basis as I can't skim them out...they are all so good. Almost daily I add another one to my long list. My sweet hubby is starting to feel like a blog widower. I will have to do something about that. There is one blog that if I ever dreamed of taking off my daily list, my 2 little kids (I have to separate them into catagories..little kids, big kids) would have a fit!!! Everyday we read My Piece of Heaven where Joni talks about farm life with "The Farmer". My kids LOVE that she calls him that. Zach will even ask about The Farmer if he is not mentioned on the blog that day. Anyway, Joni wrote about a rattlesnake encounter and then posted a picture of some rattles her and The Farmer had collected from rattlesnakes. She taught how they get their "buttons" and how you can actually tell the age of a rattlesnake. My kids must have said cool after every sentence. Well today the mail came and there was a package for the kids from Joni and the farmer. They were very suprised and thrilled!

Inside were 4 rattles from "real live rattlesnakes". When Charlotte said that phrase Zach decided he would look very closely, but not touch. Charlotte was very careful when she took them out.
It really made their day, and without any coaxing from me, both of them mentioned how nice Joni and The Farmer are. Zach wants to know when they are coming over! So Joni (and The Farmer), thank you from the bottom of my heart for reaching out, not to a quilter, but to a quilter's kids!

Aww you are so welcome Charlotte and Zachary. I hope you can show your family and friends and teach them all about rattlesnakes too! I love that you read my blog each day and I try to make each entry entertaining for you guys! Hugs and kisses to you both!!

Just goes to show that some of the world's nicest people are bloggers . . . and their families, too *s*

How nice of her to send the kid the rattles. Thanks for the link - It is a wonderful read :)) I enjoyed reading her blog about the snakes and the pheasants.
