Worth Mentioning- April 14, 2014

I am feeling better today.
I had myself a cry to release some pent up stress and things are good.

I have decided to make my oldest sister, Sheila Watkins, my worth mentioning this week.

She makes jewelry and sells it.
I have mentioned her before.
She used to have a website, but it  is down or something.
But, she sells a lot at craft shows and farmer's markets.

But, anyway, her jewelry making is not why she gets a mention.

She is six years older than me.
We grew up not having a lot in common.

But, she does so much or my parents.
She lives where they do and helps a lot.
My mother does not drive so Sheila takes her shopping and helps out with the farmer's market my mom also does.

Last year my dad was really sick. He lost so much weight that we didn't even know if he was going to make it.
But, he did.
Sheila planted his green beans for him.

Her husband puts in the window air conditioner in the summer.

She calls them most days to make sure they are OK.

I do appreciate her, even if I am not too good at tell her.

Have a great Monday!


  1. I'm glad you have family you can count on, Ruth.

    Take care.


  2. Robyn, me too.
    You take care, too.

  3. She sounds kind. How many are in your family?

    1. Susie, there are three of us. I am the baby. And I am lucky to still have both my parents.

  4. Ruth, it sounds like you have a wonderful sister and family. My husband and I participate in craft shows too, but only in the summer, and I can't make jewelry. I love looking at it during shows, though, and even though I don't wear it myself, I always buy some for my daughters.
    I'm enjoying your posts and glad to be following.

    1. Debi, I can't do jewelry either. I am bead stupid. Once I got a kit to help my daughter make something. I couldn't figure out how to do it.
      My family isn't all great, but there are bright spots. :)
      Thanks for the follow.
