Sevan Celebration Day-Pictures of my Special Birthday Gift from my angel friend:D

Sevan taking our pictures-sorry folks, the picture's been through email...
Sevan didn't want to sew, and so she made this whole beautiful apron by iron- on fusing. Can you see the amazingly beautiful and neat job that she did with iron -on? For me to get it this neat I'm sure I'd have to sew. That would be the easiest thing for me. But then, Sevan is a pretty amazing individual.




Then because they were laughing so much from the silliness, Anne gave Sevan the apron with the girl with grey hair. So here are the three, with the' kokoshnik'.How special is that!?!!! I've always appreciated the handmade gift. To think that someone actually took the time to make me something so special is just mind boggling to me. Here we are in this crazy, hectic world, and people are surviving, and thriving by the handmade revolution which is upon us. The attention to detail on the apron is remarkable.

Sevan is so very creative, and always thinks in creative ways , and bestows her thoughtfulness and generosity upon her friends, of whom there are many (correct grammar???). Just when you are a little down, or whatever, there is the phone call or invitation from this remarkable woman.

 She is Armenian, but was raised in the Middle East. She came to this country with her family when she was 14. Two months after arriving here, her father suddenly passed away. Her mother, without speaking a word of English, raised her children from nothing. They are the loveliest, most gentle souls. Of course, her mother learned English. They survived, and they thrived. 

Sevan sees the light from the dark about 99.9999% of the time, and has such compassion and understanding of the human soul. Her strength of creativity, I would say, although extremely multi-talented,is her creativity with her sensitivity to others. And... she loves to dance!!! She is like a princess when dancing. She can dance anything, but she so enjoys ethnic dancing. She hopes to one day teach dance; when the time is right. After God, her family comes first.

  Her friends are from children to those in their nineties. She celebrates them all. I am truly blessed. God has always given me the most wonderful friends to help me thru things, at every location, at every home where we have lived.

So I proclaim this to be Sevan Celebration Day!!! tehe :D
