Look What I Received!!!




I have a friend that lives in Mississippi. This friend has been through Katrina and lost so much, including her most valued treasures - her friends. She has the most wonderful spirit of anyone I know and always makes the best out of what she is dealt, no matter what that may be. She is also one of the most giving people I know. A couple of weeks ago, she sent me two jars of her wonderful pickles. This was not the first batch of them that we were blessed with. I think she should sell them, as they are the best I have ever had. I met Theresa on eBay and she has been a constant friend through many ups and downs on eBay, and in life. She is a reminder to me that when someone has a heart filled with love, nothing else matters and nothing will get them down. She has a neighbor that she cares for, as well as beautiful pets and a very loved family. She always takes the time to send a card, a note, a gift, or an email to keep in touch and keep our friendship from dwindling, even when I am not so good at reciprocating...

Theresa, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate you in my life. I have been a little down with politics and other little things going on and there you are, shining like sunshine. I just opened the huge box of goodies that I received today, with Paige by my side, pulling things out of the box. She was thrilled to get her gift from you as were Taylor and Morgan... They are munching on their treats now. I must say, if I don't keep my adorable slippers on my feet, Morgan will be right there to snatch them up. LOL!! I love the wooden tray with sheep on it, pickles, apple butter that I cannot WAIT to taste, PUMPKIN material, sock monkey slippers, and especially my gorgeous sheep that you handmade with love. Thank you for being such a kind friend to me...

Theresa, I am sending you a big hug and much love for remembering my birthday. Thank you again for your gifts, but more importantly, for your friendship... xox

You are so very welcome my friend!! You are a great person and have been very kind to me, and you deserve a wonderful birthday. Sometimes life can be hard, dissapointing, but in the end, you have to count your blessings that you still have your family and treasured friends. I am glad you liked everything, you so deserve it! Thank you for all the kind words.

Pam, you'll have to get in line behind Morgan for the slippers. I have been wearing them this evening and Morgan giggles. Paige is scared of the sock monkeys and says she only likes the eyes on the slippers ROFL!! She certainly wasn't scared of her goodie bag! She'll probably be up later than USUAL, as I let her enjoy it... Stay warm Pam and I am glad to see the gas prices coming down. Is oil getting lower as well? Thank you for stopping by and for the cute award. You are a keeper, too! xox
