Queen Bee for the Day



You do not know during your life journey whose life you have  made a difference in their lives. Well, today it started as a bad day for me. I just did not have the energy to anything and moving very slow. Today was my "Wee Bee Quilters" meeting. There was no workshop today, just sit and sew. There was no reason to rush and plus the time of the meeting changed from 12 noon to 1 pm. I called  my girlfriend Shirley and told her I call will when I am ready. I knew she was tired also since she drove up here from Durham, NC and we where out all day yesterday.When I finally got myself together was off to the meeting about 45 mins late (so I thought). To my surprise the ladies of Wee Bee had planned a wonderful surprise banquet for me. When I open the door everyone yelled SURPRISE. The first thing that went through my mind was who were they surprising. I was in total shock. Of all days I was not looking my best, no makeup and I threw on any old thing. Anyhow they rush me to my throne, placed a crown on my head, gave me a wand. They had arranged the tables banquet style and beautiful decorated and they even had yellow rose petals on the floor. The room was simply beautiful.The president, Marlene asked me to take an oath. Then it was explain to me that these wonderful and talented women wanted to tell me how much I have touch their lives. I was overwhelm and not realizing how much I meant to them and what I did to change their lives. They presented me with roses.  Each member presented me with a rose and a card until I had two vases full of beautiful yellow roses. They presented me with gifts and 20 beautiful signature blocks. Then the members shared with the group what I did for them. Of course, their was a roast. They also contact some of my family members, which was totally a surprise. I can't forget the song that was compose for me by Carolyn B*. and sung by Felicia the Slow Quilter blogger,http://theslowquilter.blogspot.com. That was so funny. Now Felicia sings beautifully but this time she was sing crazy and off tune (LOL). I have to get a copy of the song.  I will continue tomorrow with more pictures.   (*correction) I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR TURNING MY BAD DAY INTO A WONDERFUL DAY.  YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT LIFE'S JOURNEY HAVE PLAN FOR YOU.  YOU ALL HAVE BEEN THERE FOR ME.  I DID NOT KNOW I DID SO MUCH TO BE GIVEN THIS HONOR.  I ALWAYS BELIEVE IN HELPING OTHERS WHEN I CAN.  YOU ALL ARE A BLESSING IN MY LIFE

  3. It was a wonderful day and I felt blessed to be part of the surprise! I'm so glad that what started out as a bad day, ended on such a happy note, you are a great friend! And now.... *sigh* ... if only I had a Professional Tote I'd be dancing on air ... oh what I wouldn't give for my very own Professional Tote like my friend has, I could take it on vacation and bring it back full of money!! ;0)
