Bon Jour! Welcome to Cajun Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
One of my nieces introduced me to Google+ recently. Apparently Google+ is trying to create its own sort of social media similar to Facebook. I’m still learning it but it appears to me to be a combination of MySpace and Facebook at this point. I remember when MySpace was all the rage. Then came Facebook and you almost never hear about MySpace anymore. Is Google+ the next step? Time will tell.
CHRISTMAS is around the corner. Unbelievable, I know. But it is July. Get that Christmas shopping done now and enjoy the holidays.

They are utterly impractical, never predictable,
Something irascible, quite inexplicable, Cajun...
Strange blend of shyness, pride and conceit.
And stubborn refusal to bow in defeat...
He's spoiling and ready to argue and fight,
Yet the smile of a child fills his soul with delight..
His eyes are the quickest to well up in tears,
Yet his strength is the strongest to banish your fears...
His faith is as fierce as his devotion is grand..
And there's no middle ground on which he will stand..
He's wild and he's gentle, he's good and he's bad,
He's proud and he's humble, he's happy and sad..
He's in love with the ocean, the earth and the skies.
He's enamored with beauty wherever it lies..
He's victor and victim, a star and a clod,
But mostly he's Cajun and in love with his God..
