Thread: a wonderful day

  1. #1

    a wonderful day

    sunday was most wonderful. the lord blessed us with a perfect fall day, and me with wonderfully loyal friends.. 6 of my friends came over and painted the trim and windows of my home. my son mentioned at our fishing club meeting that i was worried about the needing paint, and they cooked up the idea.

    one special friend has been coming by when not working or fishing, and painting my fence.

    i have been blessed

    Sometimes the stars do all align. I though think it is probably more of you reaping what you have sown through the years. So glad to hear of a club being this active towards its members. Good for them and good for you!!

    That's what makes for a good life , friends helping friends.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That is great. Life can be wonderful if you have friends like those.

    I cherish my friends and I have made good friends on this forum too. They have provided me with knowledge, material and physical help and a lot of laughs as well. So thanks y'all.

    Sounds like a great bunch of folks, Bill. You are truly blessed!

    Of the places I've lived, we are where we need to be now. Great neighbors and good friends all around.

    Im thrilled to see you posting bill.

    bill, it shouldnt be a suprise to you. People who are sincere and giving their entire lives usually get treated the same way.
    You need some help, your good friends stepped up and showed what they are made of.
    Im very happy for you.
