Sooooooo Excited!

knitting-basket.jpgJust got an email from the head nurse on “The Ghana Project” saying that she’ll take all the knitted afghans I can get to her! That’s SO great! She even asked for my home address so that she can send me tickets to their fund raiser at the Detroit Yacht Club, for their photographer to take photos for their newsletter and website! (Believe me, I’m NOT one to want the spotlight on me…I’m much happier being the person working in the kitchen while others take the applause in the front!). I’m feeling like I’ve swallowed a bunch of feathers, my stomach is so fluffy feeling! (guess you’d call that butterflies, eh?)

I’ve asked a dear friend’s son if he would be willing to help me set up another blog on wordpress especially for this project, so that anyone interested could go there for instructions and an address for mailing completed squares. As soon as that site is up and running, I’ll post it here for anyone willing to help out. I’m just so grateful that the Lord can use my efforts to help others around the globe – who would have thought it possible!?

On another note, my middle son had his graduation party yesterday at church and it turned out very nice. He’s the one who said: “I’m not sure I want a party”; that would also be the person who said, when it was all over: “Thanks, Mom!” We still have his actual graduation coming up June 16th, but for now it’s a little reprieve on all the planning, buying, cooking, etc. He just purchased his first car, also, on Saturday. He’s now the proud owner of a 1994 Chevy Lumina minivan! It isn’t exactly what most people would think of for an 18 yr old. young man…(it’s turquoise!) but it’s in good shape and will (hopefully) get him around for quite awhile to come (it has 193,000 miles on it!!!). NOW we just have to get the last part of his Driver’s Ed. Level 1 license done so he can actually DRIVE IT by himself!!! That’s our next step! He only has something like 25 minutes daytime driving and less than 3 hours nighttime driving to finish before he goes for the Level 2 Drivers Test with the Secretary of State. (For those of you who don’t live in Michigan, we have pretty stringent driving rules for young drivers…I’m glad for that!).

Anyway, just had to share my excitement with you (and my fluffy-feather tummy…or butterflies, if that makes more sense!). Life continues to amaze and excite me! Thank you Lord, for this great project!
