My parents taught me gratitude by their daily examples. I'm grateful for so many things--the smile of our son or the crackle on the top of a giant ginger cookie. I hope to share that gratitude with you year round as you visit me here at Halland (Hall Land) House Gifts.

The Blessing of a Broken Screen
Current progress is all in yellow. It may not be faster, but it sure does feel that way,😄. Stitchin' has been slower than pond water this past year, but I'm still making progress.
What does a broken laptop screen look like? Currently, mine looks like this. Well, the top half anyway. It's impossible to send that last E-mail now, but I feel incredibly blessed. My ankle got caught in the cord, but I wasn't hurt. It was just my screen. That laptop plan I just signed up for a few months ago to get rid of the persistent reminder is now paying off in spades. DH was a little annoyed at first, but he wasn't available at the time. Good thing. He's thrilled now.
The look on my face must have been extremely pitiful because within a couple of minutes my DH was rushing my electronic life into the ER local Best Buy store 10 minutes from home. I feel incredibly blessed to live in town and to have a sweet husband to drive my computer to the fix it people without even being asked. It's a 30 minute drive from where my mom and other family live in farm heaven. We only owe them for parts. The screen should be in by Tuesday and fixed after that.
Until next time count your blessings--God's gifts to you.
