Wow! People Came!

What a blast! My co-workers threw a retirement party for me today. It was so much fun! I was amazed at how many people came. I was thinking, in my self-deprecating way, that no one would show up. I was wrong!

In fact, I had a big, happy surprise: my best pal from Georgia showed up! Wow! She's so nice to come, and I am honored that she came in the midst of her own busy and complicated life. Friends are fabulous gifts!

Everyone went together and got me a very generous gift certificate to a quilt shop.. ooohhh, I'm going to have some fun!

me with family (hubby's parents)

me with pal from Georgia! She will be here for six days!

Sounds like a great party and an appropriately fun retirement gift. Can't wait to see what goodies you find at the quilt shop.
