The Basket Lady
In the Good Humor Town, Veteran’s Day fell on 11-11-11; and just for the sake of a little good natured fun and amusement around numerology; found those particular numbers to be rather mind-boggling especially those series of numbers that “popped up” on the calendar.
What secrets are hidden within the 11-11-11’s or maybe some otherworldly meanings are about to be revealed that our finite minds can comprehend?
Okay, enough of the twilight zone humor. What’s most important is the respect and appreciation that we, as Americans, owe to our veterans who have served our nation so valiantly.
I say a daily prayer for our military men and women who are thousands of miles away and often in harm’s way, that they will be protected and return home safely to their families and communities.
Dear veterans, thank you. Our hats are off to you every day of the year!
Attention students! The school of life lesson 101 is now in session. Sit up straight and tall in your chairs. Pay attention. Every person is capable of high achievement, not just the fastest and most confident. You are not supposed to understand everything the first time around. Mistakes help one learn.
The ABC’s of Faith: Seek. Take Heart. Understand.
Basket lady sends out resounding congratulations to Christine Ladd, the recipient of the Boston Gold Cane award.
Christine tirelessly knits and donates her mittens by the dozens or should I say by the handfuls for the Basket Lady projects and often teams up with her daughter, Lane McDonald; knitting mittens, caps and
socks for a whole year to help those in need stay warm during the long, harsh, winters in Maine.
It’s a blessing to be a part of Christine’s and Lane’s inner circle of giving.
The following angels in training have shown a kindness in word or deed and deserve a heartfelt thank you Carolyn Bennett, Mindy Worthley; Roger, Dyer’s Radio Shack; Lori Grassette and Bill; Anne Wood and Joseph Sirois; Betty Wood (who lives in the Woods); Angela Roberts; Carlo Puiia; Louise Stickney; Patty Duguay; Candace Hamner; Rumford Hannaford Pharmacy; and Pam Kaubris.
Kindness not only counts but it adds up!
We miss you every day, Dot Sanchas! Until then, smile and live in the present.
