My grandmother changed my life. Not by teaching me to crochet, although she did do that. Not by showing me how to can fig preserves or roll up cinnamon rolls, but she did that, too.
My life wasn’t changed when she taught me the value of saving pie tins, bits of fabric scraps, Cool Whip cups, the bags from the outside of the newspaper, milk jugs, or even butter tub lids. Grandmother helped to change my life with three little words…

And now for the winner of the Valentine Contest!
First let me tell you why MY husband rocks! I met my husband, Alan, in high school. He was the tall, handsome, some-what quiet boy that sat next to me in Trig class. We’ve grown up together. My husband rocks because he has put up with all my immature and crazy antics as we’ve grown.
But he REALLY rocks because he is a man of God. I could never be more proud of how he has allowed God to use him. And he loves me in that same sacrificial way that Christ loves the church, which often means giving me the last bite of his cheesecake or candy bar or the last three M&M’s. He lets me pick the movie or the restaurant. He always sits in the seat with the breeze so I will be warm. He lets me warm my frozen toes on his legs.
And it doesn’t hurt that he is heart-stopping handsome, either. Just saying. That’s why MY husband rocks!!
