A big Thank You!
How can I begin to thank you all for the kind words, the heartfelt good wishes, the prayers and support I have received after my last post? I feel lifted up. Loved. Cared for. Blessed. There are many of you who are going through tough times of your own. I am praying for you. It is so good to know people care, and the thought that so many who I have never even met, care , well it brings tears to my eyes. Thank you. It doesn't seem enough but it is all I have. Another thing that brought tears to my eyes, I received this package in the mail today from Penny Carlson. Seems that our dear BJ won the Nie Nie auction on Penny's promise of a heart and instead of getting it for herself, she sent it to me. It is perfect. I can see the care and kindness from these two dear friends in each piece that Penny placed just for me. Thank you BJ and Penny. Penny included a beautiful handmade lavender soap and a card with a special greeting. You know, when I started this blog I had no idea that you all were out there or that you would find me. I saw a blog and thought it such a good way to stay in touch with out of town relatives. It has become such a blessing to find so many kindred spirits out there. Lovely women who form a network of caring and support. We have seen it in the outpouring of love for the Nielsons and I have experienced it first hand. Thank you . I consider you all another way that God shows his love for us:>)
