Today is one of my favorite days of the year. It's Good Friday and it was a beautiful day outside. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping in the trees and all was well in our world, at least here at Crumbling Cottage.

We started our day by attending the funeral of my husband's dear friend's mother. I only met her twice but, she seemed to be a kind lady. While I only knew her son my heart ached for the entire family and the hole that would be left in their lives due to her absence. The Pastor gave a wonderful message about death and Resurrection which seemed fitting for today.

From there we went out to breakfast at Mimi's Cafe and then on to church for our annual Good Friday service. The message... death and resurrection and the final words that Jesus spoke on the cross, "TELESTI!" It is FINISHED! There is nothing more that we need to do because everything that needed to be done was completed to finality.

Cori...& Coco & Elmo...hello! I have just found your blog. I have seen your comments before on my blog but visited your other blog the pinkie's tea and couldn't quite figure out who you we're. Oh, I am so glad tonight that I found you at Gingerbread Crumbs. You are definetly a kindred spirit! And who'd a thought that I am just meeting you as I have just gotten a maltese puppy! Now we have that in common. *Bella* has stolen our hearts already. She is the most wonderful addition to our family at Sea Cottage. Your sweeties are adorable. Especially on that bright pink adirondeck settee. I only wish we lived by the beach...we live 2.5 hrs away, but go often. We LOVE the is our favorite place to be. We take the *Nora Pearl* our wee vintage trailer. After Bella gets all her shots we will take her on her first trip. ONce again, it is so nice to meet you. Bless you<><
