What a blessing in the mail today.

Oh  ( sniff..sniff ) first of all, I got this big beautiful Christmas card from my baby daughter and she wrote the dearest letter inside.. Well, that started the tears flowing and ( sniff.. sniff ) then there was new pictures of my grand children .oh, how precious... more tears and even some ( snot  ,now.. gettin' a sore throat and  runny nose ).

well, I  looked and thanked the Lord for my precious family for a while...

Then if that wasn't enough ... I got a package and when I saw who it was from

I thanked the Lord for my dear friend, Kath.. (the olde weeping Cedar )

When I opened it.. more tears, ( kleenex, please ) there was this special gift that I had been wanting for some time..

a prim candle with a pineapple on the side and a battery tea light  in a black prim holder... Oh.. what a treasure from a dear friend...  ☺ ♥

Well, you know I just had to take some time and thank the Lord for  His blessings to me..    then....

I got my  Holiday 2009 issue

      of" Mercantile   Gatherings"

as happy as I always am to recieve this magazine.... I just couldn't see it for the tears in my eyes...

so that will be good reading tonight

when I get myself together again..


Can you count how may of these items are gifts from my dear friend Kath ? Actually there is one more not in here.

      Blessings  til  '  next time,

        ♥  Maurine  ♥
