A few weeks ago, a friend, one who started out as a customer, came to my
house to get some grain sacks. She drove a distance, at least 8 hours one
way, to get here. Before she came, she emailed that she was so excited about
seeing me. My exact feelings went right back to her. I like her so much and,
when we finally saw each other, we smiled and hugged, talked, laughed and
went crazy looking at grain sacks. It was a perfect few hours before she had
to be on her way, each of us making promises to see each other again soon,
expressing wishes that we lived closer to each other.
The really unusual thing, for me, is that we had never met in person till that
day! Our entire relationship was made of air…. words in the air via the
computer and boxes of grain sacks sent through the air from me to her.
Without computers, the internet and google we probably would never have
met. And what a loss that would have been.
Some of my favorite grain sacks state “God Bless Our Crops and Animals”….
A few ask for the blessing of the owner’s handiwork….
I hope that someday, among the piles of my treasured textiles, I will be able to
say that I have a grain sack that expresses my wish : “God Bless My Friends”
