Have you ever had to create a card or gift for someone as a means of
groveling for forgiveness?
Here's what I made - read on below if you are interested in my groveling story...
|Each container has a tea-rrific greeting on one side, and a teabag with name on the back side. I enlarged the tea bag, and made a nice folding card, complete with a groveling, sheepish, pleading for forgiveness apology!|
|Here are all of them - boxed and ready to go to church tomorrow.|
We've all made these easy peasy boxes before, right? Well, I needed
several, and I needed them very quickly, so I fell back on 'easy peasy'. The
images are digi. They can be found at Doodle Pantry. I hope these little gifts
serve their purpose!
Here's the scoop:
For the last 6 weeks, a friend and I have been subbing for our church secretary, who's been hospitalized for well over 6 weeks. During the course of one of my days, the preacher had a meeting one morning, and asked if I knew how to make coffee. I do, of course, and there is a Sunday School class that meets in an area just outside the office door. I'll just say that this is the class for mature adults! Anyhoooo....I made the coffee in one of their two pots. I thought I had everything all cleaned up after the meeting, however, the following Sunday, when I walked through the classroom to the office, I was met with some very
disgruntled looks, hands on hips, etc. They asked if I had any idea who had made coffee with their
TEA pot.........OOPS! So explains the two pots! One for coffee, one for tea. To make matters even worse, I had forgotten to dump the grounds, so their tea water was brown.
They pointed from one pot to the other and back again saying "Coffee pot, tea pot, coffee pot, tea pot - GOT IT'? I gulped, apologized, and said 'Got it"!, after which I very quickly left the classroom :)
So...this little gift of Hugs & Kisses, Mini Ghirardelli's, and yummy Caramel Tea will be on their table in the morning when they meet. Hopefully, I will be forgiven, and maybe even eventually find my way back up on my pedestal, reserved for nice people!!!
Have a great weekend,
Thanks for stopping by!
