FRIENDLY VILLAGE..and the economy..
Today my daughter called to tell me to come and get some things she is getting rid of. One of the things is a set of 12 Friendly Village dishes. I was delighted..but..sad. The economy is forcing a lot of young families to downsize and worse.
Watching her begin to take her dream house apart is ....killing me. I know how she must be feeling. She says it is alright, that she is fine now. That she has accepted it. So much time and effort went into making it gorgeous. I will take what I can, but it hurts, and hope one day she will come and get it back. She says "No..I will get new when we get back on our feet again" It's funny, because no one I know is getting a bit of help with their businesses or saving their homes. I am certain I heard that there was some sort of thing taking place to help people keep from going under. What is going on? It's the young who have children in college, hard working young men and women. I'm sad and distressed watching it go on. I have such hope for the future. I was beginning to think I would never feel such hope for us again.
