The Basket Lady
Congratulations to the employees of Med-Care Ambulance for your most recent achievement in bringing about a state of the art ambulance facility to the River Valley communities. Your patience and hard work have been rewarded and we thank you so much!
For those of you who attended the open house that the good folks put on to introduce the marvelously modern Med-Care Ambulance Building, you were in for an awesome treat and so was I. It’s a beautiful facility and around every corner as we walked through the hallways to see the offices, overnight rooms and conference rooms, oohs and ahhs could be heard as Jeremy gave us the grand tour.
Please contact Laurieann Milligan, the community outreach director at 364-8748 for information regarding use of the conference room for educational classes or to schedule a class in first aid and CPR.
Another River Valley beauty: Basket Lady was anticipating the Carey’s home garden show as a benefit for Black Mountain a tad too soon as she showed up with her side-kick a week early to view the Carey gardens- of- wonder. Sally patiently clued us in to the news that it was the following week but we weren’t deterred as we came back to witness the amazing things that they did (and they did a lot).
For example, with something as down-to-earth as pine needles, they made a labyrinth of walking paths; cleverly winding in to each other displaying more beauty at every turn. Black Mountain was the recipient of a successful fund raiser but the folks who visited the Carey Garden of Eden enjoyed a priceless tour. Their garden could be show-cased in a Better Homes and Gardens Magazine or even better, as a feature segment on Bill Green’s Maine.
Hopefully, someone has a created a DVD about their gardens but no one needs to tell the Carey’s to bloom where their planted- they wrote the garden book on how to plant and grow seeds of beauty. The Carey family deserves a standing ovation and a big round of applause!
The following every day earthly angels have been a blessing by showing a kindness in word or by deed: Lorraine Nadeau, Jane MacFarlane, Two anonymous angels, Irene Haynes, Dianne Patterson, Sue Ellen Richardson, Jane Bubar, Sally Carey, Penny angel, Dan Frazel family, and Kirk Thurston.
Today, in your life’s garden, are your planting seeds of kindness? Imagine a garden filled with every kind of flower that your mind can conceive of; now imagine each flower budding with joy and kindness just for you. Today’s a wonderful day to begin planting seeds of kindness. Today’s a wonderful day to begin a new relationship with you.
We miss your kindness every day, Dot Sanchas! Until then, smile and live in the present.
