Thanks for sharing it with us Brin, and your dream has come true, you are a very talented author, in print, right here! Now, I know it doesn't pay the bills, but it does bring joy, hope, and inspiration to many just like any good book would! Hugs!

Adorable! I understand your dislike for these things... but I will say it was fun to see your take on it!

What color did you use to paint the bedroom in the pic? I love it! Do you mind if I steal it?

I like the "false teeth" response!

Wonderful responses, Brin, and Sue is correct... you are a talented author! I'm praying for you to have better days, too. :-)

The last day I cried was today. I find myself fighting back tears a lot lately when thinking that this will be the first Christmas in 15 years without our two little dog buddies. It's been sudden, even though illness took its toll, but their loss has given me time to reflect about how I should be spending my time and how people in nursing homes need my company as much as I feel I need my dogs. So that is one instance how the Lord took something and turned it for good! The elderly need so little from us and give so much in return!

Have a great week!

Sheila... who tried to email Freeman House!

Thanks, y'all. You're all too kind!

Patsy - the bedroom paint color is "Sea Oat" by Martha Stewart. They used to carry her paint at Sherwin Williams but I think Lowe's carries her colors now...

Shelia - I got your email(s) and pictures... just haven't had time yet to respond. Hopefully tonight I'll shoot you one back!


The rest of you, consider yourself tagged! -Brin

I did this... or something similar... awhile back.

And... by the way... have you ever considered using your photography skills to help pay the bills? What about publishing a "Freeman House Calendar?" Your readers LOVE your photos... so I'm sure you'd get a big response to a calendar. Just a thought. :)

Hi Brin....I just need to tell you that you are stunning. Beautiful. Intelligent. Creative. Courageous. Gracious. Honest. Strong. Brave. Remarkable. Unforgetable. Your talents amaze me as well as your gumption. Yes you have gumption, grit and grace. Three things I want to have when I grow up. I have no doubt that the Lord will give you the desires of your heart, No doubt whatsoever. You are a pioneer woman with a can-do attitude. You have a vision and you are capable. You are an amazing writer. Amazing. I love reading what you write. I mean it. You have an enchanting way with words. Your perspective on things is so refreshing. So fresh. So striking. So filled with wit and wisdom. I guess that is what astounds are so young and yet you have such wisdom. What a treasure you have inside you.

May God bless you in wonderful ways in the coming months. Thank you for sharing your honest-to-goodness-filled-with-sweetness life with us through your facinating blog. I just thought you would like to know how your heart has touched mine.
Warmest Regards,
Warm Pie, Happy Home
