Hi cross stitch fans!!  I hate to disappoint you, but there won't be any pictures today either.  I have great news though!!  For those of you who have been praying for my son's friend T, your prayers have been answered.  Looks like T will be going home in a day or two, just in time to spend Christmas at home.  The Lord is sooooo good!  Thank you all for praying for him!!

I have a couple of other fun things to tell you.  Did I happen to mention how much I love my job?  Well...I find the things we frame so interesting, and it's kinda neat living in this area because we do tend to get some interesting pieces to frame.  The other day we had a rush order (which had a less than 24 hour turn around) from "The Washington Post".  They had the newspaper proof (it's a metal tin type that is what they use to print off the newspaper) with an article about George Bush.  AND...I later found out that it was a gift for George H W Bush himself!!  Something I framed might be hanging in the former president's house!!  How cool is that?  There was an Air Force Doctor who used to come frequently to the store, he was the private doctor for George W.  He had a few stories to tell!!  LOL  He brought in the licens plates of the presidential limo from inauguration day along with the flags that fly on the front of the car.  That was a cool project too!  I've met some secret service fellas, and all kinds of interesting folks.  Yep, my job may seem dull most of the time, but now and's kinda fun the things we see pass through our doors.  Right now it's crunch time at the store I'm working some long hours, and then I'm too tired to sleep.  I need to find some time to wrap presents too.  I need a few extra hours in the day.  LOL  Anyone want to be my elf and come clean my house and wrap my gifts?  Nah, didn't think so...LOL  I'm off to hit the hay, tomorrow promises to be another exhausting day.  *Hugs*

When you find that cleaning fairy, send her my way :@ My cousin used to frame, and she used to tell me of all the wonderful things they got to frame! The paintings and the needlework. What items you get to be in the presence of!
