Our family lives a patched together life rich in social capitol. Last Friday Lisa from GR Bagel came by with her left over bagels that didn't sell at the Muskegon Farmer's Market that day. It was a lot of bagels (unusual because they usually sell out at Fulton Street). It was beautiful to have that tasty windfall brought over from a dear friend.
This Saturday a large bag full of cotton clothing was left on our porch with a little note saying that this was to be a contribution to daughter Rose's ArtPrize project Quilt Mountain at Have Company. That was a very generous and loving act.
I had been working with Storr Printing to create a large post card for my City As Muse ArtPrize project. Everything was coming into them last minute and I was hoping to have it for the Odd Ball event that Saturday night and was only able to get the final photo to them Saturday morning. Donna (such a wonderful lady) came by later that morning with a hundred cards to our door (no charge).
All this in just one week! I am taking time to appreciate the good people that surround our family in this city of Grand Rapids. I am humbled and bowled over by accumulation of these gracious and selfless acts. I feel like am living in the last scene of It's A Wonderful Life and I like it that way.
