Bloggin' Friends

In the almost four years since I’ve been blogging, I’ve met so many “blogging” friends, some with blogs and some that don’t necessarily blog, but are avid blog readers! And they are wonderful!



I love the comments and the emails. And you might not believe it, but I talk about you folks to my family by name so my family feels like that they know you too! We pray for many of you too!

Today’s post is just one example of this kindness.

Eve of Lee Hill Primitives, after seeing the post where Joy was learning to sew, sent her a wonderful package!



It was such a thoughtful encouraging gift too. Not only is it a fun and challenging project for Joy, but she noted that it would be a treasure for her prim loving mama when she finished it. Wasn’t that sweet? Thank you so much, Eve!

And being the kind person she is, she also included something for Luke. He was excited to see there was something in there for him! He loves his books! Besides “reading” his books, he has other uses for them too. I guess he thought these four books made a perfect train. He said he had an engine with coaches.



And she sent something for me too……..a prim heart mold! I already have it displayed in my kitchen! Thank you, Eve!





Besides thanking Eve for her very sweet and thoughtful gifts, I also wanted to just take time to let all my readers and blogging friends know that I truly appreciate each one of you! Your comments brighten my day as well! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy days to visit my blog!  :)

And speaking of my blogging friends, I decided to offer a giveaway for you!  It's coming soon.......so stay tuned.........

Have a great day!

Tammy, you made me cry. Thanks for this beautiful post, who knows me knows that I love to give things and never for recognition. I am so glad to know that your family enjoy my gifts, and that the gifts were received with the same intention as sent. From the bottom of my heart thank you for your words. You made my day! The blogland is full of friends who may never see in our lives physically but his words have touched deep in our hearts. People through their blogs have learned to admire for its beauty to God, made us think our purpose in life, if the generosity has been enough for me etc. Your blog is always inspirational. Blessings from the distance, Eve
