Angels Abide Here

Helen Tilston painting Guppy's Indian Rocks Beach
A favourite expression of my mother's is:  "if a job is worth doing; it is worth doing well"  and
"no one will ask how long it took to complete a job but they will ask who did it" words of Kathleen Bohannon Glynn.

As you will recall from a previous post  RCS Helps The Gift of Food selected us as the artist for their fundraising card.  Thank you to all who have generously donated, including followers and one specifically namely Carolynn Cecilia who blogs under The Anchor and the Bird. Imagine my surprise to open her blog and note she carried my posting on RCS Helps.   Carolynn Cecilia began her "Days of Deeds" this past May and planned to do one good deed daily for 31 days and to her surprise she could not stop here. 
Carolyn Cecilia and I have not met but have become friends through blogging and I am always happy to see her new post. 

Carolyn Cecilia you are person of such integrity and honour and the Yiddish word "mensch" comes to mind when describing you.

Our art show opens next Sunday January 8th, Coastal Cottages Series Ten

It will be a very busy week and I wish all of you abundant blessings in 2012

  5. From what I read Carolynn is indeed a wonderful lady. Thumbs up for her. We have a word in holland which looks like the jiddisch word which is mens. It means human in english but it might be different from the jiddisch word?
