Gifts from the heart...

December 17, 2013

I think I have the dearest and the best friends ever. My birthday came and went last week. I don't make a fuss for my birthday. I am perfectly content to let it go by without a word, though it is nice when people remember. =) And this year, I was remembered....

Every year, my mom's best friend brings me something from her home that my mom made. I can't begin to tell you how much her gifts mean to me...

My dear friend Judy, embroidered a vintage bib for me. Isn't the lamb simply darling?  She also stitched the hanky. She is from the south originally, so the saying she stitched is precious, don't you think? 

Judy also spoiled me with some vintage ornaments for my pink tree. This is one of several she gave to me....

My dear friend Mary Ann blessed me with a journal to help me through this season of my life. Writing is helpful. I think there is something healing about the physical act of writing verses typing. 

I don't have a picture, but my dear friend, Casey gave me the gift of comfort food: chips and salsa from Carlos O'Kelly's....Yummy!!!

And for all of you, dear friends, who are praying for me and my family, sending me encouraging emails and simple messages of "I am thinking of you," I am very grateful....It means more to me than I can say.

Thank you, all.....
