Amish Proverbs


My birthday is coming up on this next Thursday,so my daughter Regina and her family took me to have dinner Saturday evening,my favorite Chinese food :) We also stopped in Barnes and Noble's Bookstore...I picked this book out and they bought it for me as an early birthday gift. Afterward we had to stop by my son in law's job so he could take care of some business. While he was busy and the boys were out helping him..Regina and I sat in the pick up and waited. She was knitting while I was reading this book out loud to her. I am going to enjoy it for a very long time. The words in it really bless me. Some of the sayings in this book,I remember my own family members using over the years,grandparents,aunts,uncles and such. If you admire,as I do,the Amish way of life...you will certainly want to get this book. Tis a gut book!
Blessings on your week

Happy early birthday, Shelley! I hope you have a wonderful day and the year ahead is a good one for you.
You know that I love the Amish way of life too. I have so many stories to tell you since my daughter has befriended an Amish woman and her family. I will get my thoughts together and write you an e=mail soon.

Happy Birthday Shelley. My mama was a Mennonite, I've been told that they were very similar to the Amish.
I like to read about the Amish. Their way of life is so interesting, and very appealing.

Hugs
