I have recently been blessed with gifts from some of my blogging friends. So I wanted to publicly express my gratitude.
Totally out of the blue, I got a package as Mr. Jim was going into the hospital for his surgery. It was from sweet Judith of Lavender Cottage! She sent me a little rabbit soap dish to cheer me up! How cute is that?! Marty thumped his approval right away, LOL. I love it, and it is already been assigned to duty at the sink in my cozy laundry room. Judith also included a beautiful floral card (oops, no photo of it) and scented Crabtree and Evelyn soap and lotion. Thank you, Judith, for your thoughtfulness. And yes, you succeeded in raising my spirits!
In addition to that surprise, recently winning two bloggy giveaways also has surprised me! The first giveaway prize I won was sponsored by dear Sally of Drinking From My Saucer. The package arrived in the mail this past week.
And it was a beautiful 11”x14” Grateful print by Sasha of Lemonade Makin' Mama! The message sure does reflect what I have been feeling lately. Thank you, Sally and Sasha!
The second giveaway prize I won was sponsored by my long-time good friend, the ever-cheerful Kim of Homesteader's Heart. It was a Starbucks card! Thank you, Kim, and I will be using it soon at the Starbucks coffee shop in our hospital’s cancer building!
And I would be remiss in not mentioning that we received many cards and e-mails from my blogging friends during the past couple of months. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your kindness! In my book, your friendship is a cherished gift.
