I've said it before, but I've met some the nicest people online, since I first stumbled upon the Country Sampler forum, and then ventured out into blogland. It actually amazes me that there are so many good people out there, compassionate, and kind-hearted. I've seen it time and time again. I'm thankful for that.
Today, my dad stopped by after work with our mail, as he always does. I immediately saw a package in his hand. I knew I wasn't expecting anything (hadn't ordered anything), so I was anxious to see what it could be. Well it was from an online friend, Janet, that I met through my blog. She first emailed me through my profile, and we began chatting some through email. She is another prim lover. I tore into the envelope before I took a picture. And I wish I had taken a picture of it before I unwrapped the gift, because it had the prettiest red checked ribbon around it tied up so neatly! It made me happy just looking at it like that.....but it made me even happier when I opened it up and found this stitchery:
Isn't that so nice? She began stitching somewhere around the time I did my first stitchery and she has done many since. She is making up her own patterns and having fun with it and I am the lucky recipient of one of her stitcheries! Thank you so much, Janet! I love it!
And my lovely daughter gave me an award! Of course, I wanted to show it on here. If you haven't had this award, I invite you to take it and display it! Thank you, Joy!
I also want to thank all of you that have been so sweet to stop in and visit Joy's blog and leave comments too. I can't even convey how excited she is over having her own blog. She's always been very interested in watching me and reading some of your blogs along with me. Now she's working circles around me! I think she has posts scheduled for everyday this week! :) Here she is the night they were playing music upstairs (in her pjs). She was sitting nearby listening, but working earnestly on her blog post.
Thanks again for all the kindness I see and read out there! It really is uplifting! Have a great Tuesday everyone! :)
