My mailbox has been a fun place to be….
Three great gals, Barb, Becky and Ila, who read my blog blessed me with fabric. THANKS gals…I so appreciate your kindness.
A week ago I wrote a post about wanting to make a couple super scrappy quilts but feeling limited as most of my fabric is Civil War reproductions. Within minutes, there are offers of fabric in my email box.
These came at just the right time for me. I had been having a not so good day…let me tell you what had happened. I have a free early learning printables website, Making Learning Fun. I have been working and working and working on this site for four years. It’s mostly a hobby, but by now you know, if you are a regular reader, I take my hobbies pretty seriously. Typically I get great, fun, happy, thankful, appreciative emails in my inbox. I have never gotten a “mean” email until today. Here’s what it said, “”I have to say that your website needs a lot of work. Your “activities”, are very unprofessional in appearance. Take pride in what you do.”
Everything on my website is free. I don’t charge anything. No one is asked or required to use it. Why would someone write that? If they don’t like it, why not keep it to yourself and just not use the activities?
Last week I talked with a reader of my blog who mentioned that she felt hurt after a block exchange had gone differently than she expected. People said things that hurt her.
On Bonnie Hunter’s facebook page she posted this note quote, “We believe we are not making a difference. But making a difference is really about the way you show up in the world every day. In fact like it or not, you’re ALREADY making a difference by your presence. It may be a good difference or a bad difference, a large difference or a small difference, but you had an effect on everyone who saw you, felt you, or heard you today. So the question is not whether you CAN make a difference, but what kind of difference are you making?”- Barbara De Angelis
I just want to take a moment and thank everyone who has ever wished me well, celebrated little milestones with me, asked advice, or just read my blog or used my website without making a nasty comment. You have made a difference in my life.
