Birthday Blessings





One of the groups that I am in does a birthday card & floss exchange for birthdays. There are about 15-20 of us involved this year. Well, it was my turn to receive the goodies!!! I got one envelope that was entirely too big to be just a card & floss, but it said _ _ _ _ floss exchange on it, so I put it in the bowl with the other cards. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!
When I opened it, I couldn't believe it!!!! Kim sent me a piece she had stitched & showcased in her blog!! She made it into a pillow & sent it to me!!!! It is so special!! Not only does it spell out friend, but in each letter of friend, is another word. They are : trust, laugh, love, sister, confide, & faithful. What a very special gift, from a very special friend!! THANK YOU SO MUCH KIM!!!

I am also attaching a picture of all of my cards in another very special gift! My dad made the bowl for me. It is red cedar & oh my!!!!! ANOTHER WONDERFUL GIFT!!!! And in the bowl from my parents was some Bath & Body Works items in my very favorite scent! Thanks mom, since I KNOW you picked them out!!!

AND........my very best friend in the world made the day before my birthday so very special!!! We haven't had much opportunity to get together lately like we have in the past. Well, she made up for it Monday! We spent quality time talking & catching up, both here & out for lunch! We had a blast together, just like old times!! I am attaching the picture of my gift from her as well!! (see, she stitches too!!!) The little hummingbird looks WONDERFUL in my stitching room.

I am SO BLESSED by all of my friends. THANKS TO EACH & EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!!
