The big black bag is history. Here is the new bag I made her sitting on the walker as we were leaving to go to church yesterday. As you can see its pretty full and I'm thinking I should have made it bigger. But I think the contents would expand to fit whatever the size!
There was one heart stopping moment when the ushers were taking up the collection at church. She couldn't find her donation! I sat there helplessly as the usher went on his way to the next pew without Mama's money. After church I asked her if she had a problem finding her money and she said, "No, she just forgot to get it together."
You wouldn't believe how much lighter this bag is too! Evidently change had been accumulating in the bottom of the old big black bag and when she switched bags, she put all the change in a jar. Now she plans to put all her change in the jar and not in the bag. I appreciate that since I am the official bag carrier when we go places. :o)
