November Gratitude, Part Six

I'm not afraid to ask for help.

And I don't think that's necessarily a good thing.

I call people for everything. Roasting a turkey? Call up my mom or sister. Need a can of something to complete a meal? Call the neighbor(s) (as many as it takes, usually!). Don't know how to apply the adhesive to fabric when doing applique? Call the girl down the street who does.

And for some reason, they always step up and help. Over and over.

So today, I'm grateful to all the lovely people in my world who answer their phone when I call, and put up with my ineptitude at roasting turkeys and managing to buy ingredients and learning to applique.

Thanks to all of you for putting up with me. Because it means you are talented and smart and a lot more organized than me. I feel blessed that you willingly pass on your knowledge and talents. And answer the phone.

Beck, They answer the phone because they need to!! You will find them someway!! :) I'm just kidding.. Everyone loves to help you out because you are such a great person and they know that if they help you out, one day you will be there for them!! :) I know that from experience! I love your phone calls, I don't get the asking kind much anymore, since I live a hundred miles away. But I did love the ones when you would ask me to do something for you like watch the boys or something... I sure do miss 'em..
I love you!! :)

Aw, you are too funny. I am always just a phone call, or a knock away. I love being the girl down the street and if my limited knowledge of fusible web makes your day easier, then call away LOL

I need to follow your lead. I'm terrified of annoying people, in any way, even to ask for help. You are a good example to me.
