Easy Peazy, Lemon Squeezy, To Paint A Rock Is Not So Easy

Today I was thinking of some fond memories. Once on Secretary's Day, the General Manager's wife painted a personal paperweight for all the ladies in the office. There was a saying on each paperweight. She thought long and hard about the sayings, and even enlisted her husband's help. Each year I give a donation and buy a calendar from Christian Record Services .They send blind children to camp each year, it is a wonderful organization. Anyhoo, she put a saying by Helen Keller on my paperweight. I will cherish this rock forever. Oh, bonus round the rock is painted pink........

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller

Please check out Christian Record Services. They are a lovely worthwhile organization.

Kind Regards, Theresa
