It was great to meet other team members in person. I was so tempted to buy from you gals! I had to keep telling myself I was there to sell...not buy.

By an unkown Irish poet
When the folks next to you act like those in the zoo,
A grumbling, growlin’ and spittin’. It’s a pretty good plan
To be calm as you can, and do something useful-like knittin’.
When gossipin’ Susan, with poison-barbed tongue
Comes into the room where you are sittin’, and starts to defame
Some neighbor’s good name, count stitches out loud—
And keep knittin’.
When there is a light misunderstanding at church
And others hint broadly of quittin’, the very best thing you can
Do is sing...and stay at your post, and keep knittin’.
In the middle of problems, the big ones and small
It’s always most proper and fittin’
To trust and to pray till the Lord shows the way
And go right ahead with your knittin’.

The first box I shipped includes:
- about 6 pairs of shoes (mostly dress shoes still in boxes)
- about 6 purses
- about 6 belts
- water bottle
- her favorite DVD
- a pair of jeans
- some old dishtowels/dishclothes
- some of those 3-M removable hooks
- a corded phone
- an extension cord
- a backpack
- some trial mix
- some dried cranberries
- some of those peach ring candy
I think that's about all! I'm so thankful I work in an office where we have UPS come and pick up every day...no waiting in line at the post office...insurance included....and I can pay through payroll deduction!
Stay tuned for the contents of box # 2...should be shipping early next week!
