How do you thank someone?

it has been a difficult past few months.
we all know what it is like when you health becomes a major issue and the energy you used to have is no longer standing by.
i have not been stitching as much as i would like and haven't seem some of my dear friends for many months.
the thing that keeps me going beside family and knowing i have another 6 months of treatment if all goes as planned is my sweet dear friends.
i received a huge package the other day and couldn't remember what i had order or why.
i opened it to find...
a fun mixture of goodies that cheered me up instantly.
don't you love the big eyed lady bug, pink nail polish, peppermint lip gloss, chocolate face mask, a cute napkin with a Valentine card, eye pillow that smells like lavender! plus so many cute little cards with such heart felt love. the red bird cage had chocolate hearts inside (yip i ate those, first) and the beautiful homemade bird with a button jar to perch on. plus an assortment of beautiful sampler cards from the National Trust.

here is a close up of the beautiful bird and cage, the wings can hold needles and the red buttons have a great little home for now.
  remember never to give in to the pain or the exhaustion.
when you least expect it a smile can arrive in a box.
thank you to my incredible stitching/traveling friends...
Beth, Becky and Julie. your friendship makes each day a little easier, knowing you are on my side.
see you all soon.


  1. You are welcome! We can't wait until you can come out and play again ;0 we miss you dear one!!!! Happy Valentines Day. Take good care of yourself and give our James a hug too!

  2. We had fun thinking of you getting a nice surprise in the mail! But if love means never having to say you're sorry, it also means no thanks are necessary. True friends share the ups the downs and the in-betweens!
