I wasn't born to find papers for tax season.
But seeing as how I have to.... every year....
Today's Happy is about what I enjoyed along the way to finding all that nasty paperwork.
Some great bits and whatchama-callits for those framed collage vignettes I'm just going to make soon. *The lyrics to a song that always makes me cry at church. * A picture of my rabbit-shootin' granny mama. * A hole-punched copy of Judy's boring blog. She thinks she's boring. She doesn't know that I have copied some of her wise words and put it into my binder of miscellaneous stuff that I don't want to lose. I never do that with boring people blogs. *Some sweet cards that I've kept for years. I love re-reading them. They give me hope, or something. *the Housewife's Prayer from the front page of the Mennonite Treasury Cookbook. I must expound on that another day.
*More words from Judy. Gosh, is she boring. *One of Sam's masterpieces. "What? I didn't forget my lunch!" *My brother Ken's memorial thingie about the Educational fund set up in his name. Handsome guy.
*Some daycare anecdotes that I scribbled on scrap paper and shoved in the drawer. *a marker picture of a pot of flowers that Sam drew in kindergarten. He said it didn't look EXACTLY like the plant; but I thought it looked better. *A couple of pics of the little feller. He's not really my favourite. Just my youngest. Which means his pictures are always the cutest, because...well... he's the youngest! *A hand-scribbled note from a Darfur friend that I've never met. I love it. Here's what it says: "Please forgive the stationary. I included a gift for you because you are such a giving person." (I got a great, loose-weave scarf. I love it). *An elaborate picture drawn by my other boy-wonder, Micah. *Some robots.
Now. The people who are born for tax season. Do they find this kind of happiness in their filing?
