My mailbox has been busy and I’m terribly behind on acknowledgements and thank yous. So often my mail gets brought in the house by one of the girls who are here helping and then it gets mixed with old mail….and then I’m in trouble. I appreciate their help so much and it’s a very small price to pay for the help that they are giving me.
Ila sent us all thing English Muffin. She is great and sending little pick me up food boxes. I had to laugh when I read the gift tag. It said, “I hope you like raisins”. Why yes we do!!
We have gotten lots of cards and even postcards from readers. Some have a gift card for gas, Wal-mart, Subway and VISA type cards. Some have a gift of money and some are a message. We love them ALL. Here’s a sampling.
Some cards are quilty. The postcard was to Kramer telling about where they lived. He loves them. Did you see the hand drawn bird card…..COOL!! The note that say Thank You on it had me crying….
Here’s what the note said…
“….this is a reach out to a sister with a broken heart. Moms & grandmoms & wives support families in the thick of though times bear great burdens- physically, emotionally, spiritually. May your communities & families that surround you give you strength and peace. Know that you’re being propped up by 1000 angels-we all whisper and goan prayers with you and on your family’s behalf.”
Ah…I’m crying again now after typing that out. Thanks Sally. I appreciate the words.
On a lighter note….
Check out a fabric gift. Corrie was cleaning out and found calicos. I’m in love!!
This little panel is so fun. I want to do something with this!!
Here’s a fun note that came from Annie. I love the quote from this one..”(I) have the good sense to realize that’s it’s probably not a very helpful idea to FedEx you a casserole…” Bahahahahaha. That had us all laughing!!
Yes. Thanks for not FedEx-ing a casserole…thanks for the giggle. We need giggles!!
Check out this amazing stitched card….and a card came from Canada. Kramer knows readers are from around the world but this proved it!!
Of course there are LOTS of notes from my friend Connie. She sent fabric in this one!!
We also got a VERY special note from a blog reader who asked for no attention on the blog. She passed on a kindness that was given to her some time back. She asked that the story not be told but the story would have you all in tears.
I only hope we can get things back together here and I can pass on the kindnesses that have been extended to us. I am still daily reminded that there are so many good people in the world. THANKS everyone. Everything you have done and continue to do is appreciated by us both more than words can say.
