Precious... you are!! Your kind, sweet words and encouragement have meant more to me than I could ever tell you! Thank you from the very depths of my heart!
While I'm thanking you... I also want to thank our sweet friend Linda over at Parker's Paradise for this wonderful package that arrived in my mailbox a few weeks back! I adored these sheep that she made and blogged about, but I knew there was no way that I could make them as good as our Linda and boy was I ever surprised and thankful to receive one!! He is so sweet on my year round tree!
Linda's little tucks are SO adorable too!
Thank you dearly, my sweet friend for your big heart and generosity!
Another wonderful package that arrived just today was an order that I placed from Lois over at Huckleberry Lady. Lois recently had a giveaway for her adorable X's and O's. I acquired if she had any left because I had to have them to put under my Valentine's tree. One set left, YAY for me! Aren't these just so sweet?
They are perfect sitting in an old metal strainer (that is sitting in an old wooden Carnation crate) under my year round tree covered in hearts. The X's and O's really add a touch of sweetness!
Oh... there was also a nice little surprise of a Twix candy bar that was quickly stashed in my purse to enjoy at the basketball game tonight. I pulled it out at the game and started munching away. Rich looked at me and said "Where did that come from??" I just smiled. =] So thank you Lois for the extra little treat, I did enjoy it!
Gonna spend the week cleaning, purging, and organizing my son's room and prepping it for paint. Hope to sneak in some crafting somewhere along the way. I have a few quilt block sawdust pillows ready to list on Etsy. I love the old look and feel of them, definitely reminds me of days past.
I'm so thankful that God's mercies are new everyday. I'm thankful for the valleys He has us walk through to strengthen us and build our character. I'm thankful for the precious friends and family that he puts along our path through the valley to lift us up and encourage us on our journey. My family has truly felt your prayers concerning our son and his school. I'm not completely happy with the outcome of our situation but I know that this is the best route for all. Things could have been much worse so I'm thankful that Rich and I stood up to the school officials and administration to let them know that we will not sit back and watch injustice. We fought and won some, but not all. Short term, it is a small victory but I know long term that they will remember that we are very involved in our children's lives and we do watch out for their well-being.
Again, I can not thank you enough for being there for me and being such a strong supporter and prayer warrior for us! I truly love you each and every one! =]
