"LOVE NEVER FAILS"
If you've been a reader of my Blog for very long then you know I sometimes share things about my personal life. I love to chat about my two kids, Brandon and Adrienne, and I love to share the muse that often surrounds my only grandchild, Miss K (she's about to turn EIGHT by the way!!!). I also love to brag about my hubbs of 32 years, the one I affectionately call my "Mr. AGPMan". I'm not embarrassed or afraid to sing his praises because as I see it, we need more real men in this world who aren't afraid to love, honor and respect their wives. And that means they must be willing at times to do jobs that aren't necessarily "manly" (it's all in the name of "LOVE", right?).
OK...it's important to interject here that in spite of the fact I love to sew (and I do! I do!) I absolutely cannot stand winding bobbins for my sewing machine. I know it's silly. Totally ridiculous even. But when I'm in the middle of a project and my JANOME runs out of bobbin thread (it's always when I'm top stitching, too!) I start whining! I mean I LAMENT out-loud! WAH! WAH! WAH! Is it possible for some brainiac out there to manufacture a piece of equipment for the home-based-designer that doesn't run out of bobbin thread evahhhhhh....?????
Now...back to my guy.
For as long as I've known him (and it's been since I was 17), my husband, Steven, has been kind, loving and more than thoughtful. A true romantic (and no, I don't mean that gushy, sloppy-kissy, over-the-top kind of guy who makes girls NUTSO!). He's more like the boyfriend with the wickedly expressive eye that did all the right things while you are dating and then kept it up long after the wedding ceremony.
Am I making sense?
I know. I know. I'm blessed.
Even "lucky" some may say...
After a long day of sewing Christmas Stockings, Pillows and Sachets yesterday I fell into bed absolutely exhausted. When my machine ran out of bobbin thread for the 4th time I finally decided to call it a day! Now...as strange as it may sound to you (because I didn't say a word) I awoke this morning to find the "LOVE YOU" note (shown at the top) taped to the front of my sewing machine
and next to it,
in what had been a completely EMPTY BOBBIN BOX
(now full of freshly wound bobbins),
I found this:
In case you can't read my guy's chicken scratch this is what the note said:
I know how much you hate winding bobbins! So, I present
you with the "magic bobbin box". Just take out
a new one and place the empty one in the box. It will 'magically' be full when you need it again.
(hope your day is "sew" wonderful) :)"
I'm back into the studio working on more things for my website...
Knowing all the while how fabulous I really do have it!
(Thank you, God!)
Blessings for a beautiful Tuesday.
Love to you...
