P G & E, Gratitude
Like the blossoms on this flower, Gratitude can multiply and unfurl.
Several weeks ago I wrote about PG & E, and our refrig.. Just to fill you in.
The parts came in for the refrigerator, and it is humming quietly, keeping everything wonderful and cold... and it was before Thanksgiving, so we were very fortunate that is was not the holiday week-end...
PG & E, were true to their word, and after filing the proper papers they paid for the repair and the food that was spoiled... A kind sounding gentleman called to inform us that the check was on the way.. In the mean time I found out that our DVD player was also not working, and mentioned it to the claims person. I suggested waiting to have our son check it out, because he is better at electrical devices.
When the family came to visit at Thanksgiving he checked it and yes, the circuit board had blown also... We bought a new one on sale at the local Radio Shack that week-end.
I called the number that the PG & E man gave me and left a message.. I received a call stating that that sounded fair and a follow -up check was in the mail... We appreciate the help that PG & E gave us and the kind live man on the other end of the phone.
Gifts come in different size packages, sometimes we recognize them and sometimes, they are so small they go unnoticed..
Especially at this season, the season for giving and receiving.. We feel gratitude for our refrigerator, our electrical system and everything that makes our life so much easier..
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters.
