Wrapping Paper!!

I have found this story on Tracey's blog .... be warned it's a very sad but something to really thing about when children do something that yes its annoying but does it really need all that fuss creating about it????

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then said,
'This is for you, Mummy.'

The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened
the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner

'Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something
inside the package?'

She had tears in her eyes and said, 'Oh, Mummy, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full.'

The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold
box by her bed for all the years of her life.

Whenever she was discouraged or
faced difficult problems she would open the box
and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love
and kisses from our children, family and friends... There is no more precious
possession anyone could hold.



Enough said !!!



Hoots Man there's a mouse loose about this house!!!!

A few months ago we discovered we had a mouse, we thought we had got rid of him, but yesterday I started to tidy my craft cupboard and discovered traces of him again, how dare the little so and so make his home around my precious stash!!! So I have spent all of yesterday and today clearing out my stash into the living room!! Now I can't do any crafting as I can't find anything :( So it is off to B&Q tomorrow to get some poison!! I know, I Know, but we have tried the humane ones (these are still down, so lets hope the mouse is a clever one and chooses these) and haven't caught the little bugger, and if we leave it too long we will be sharing our house with a family of mice and I am sorry but I sure as heck don't want that!!!!.

There will be no posts of craft for me for a while! So I am going to catch up with all my favourite blogs instead!
