A Gift from the Heart

Having dear and loving friends and family members who remember you in thoughtful ways is a great gift in life.
If one of the friends just happens to be immensely talented and artistic, it's extra special!

Jana, who fits the above description, sent me a birthday gift recently from Georgia.

This is the festive contents I saw when the box was opened!

Jana had cross-stitched a pillow!  

 Knowing I love lambs and pink roses, the pillow has both!

 I love it!

She also made the birthday card that was enclosed! 

It was the most beautiful card received and I have no idea how she could make it.

 Yes, I have a September birthday and love to celebrate the whole month! ha!

She also tucked in a carry-all bag and a tea cozy.  

What a sweet friend she is. Did I tell you she was talented, too?

It's so good to be alive and have another birthday to celebrate. 

I am very, very grateful for life as well as for beloved family and friends.

p.s. I'll share a few other gifts with you, too, so, if interested, stay in touch over the next few days.

Well I think you need to make a trip to Georgia to thank her - fly into Atlanta - I can pick you up and take you there! LOL Those were very beautiful gifts. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Nice gifts; must have been fun to receive and open all the surprises. That's what I like, some surprises on my birthday. A cake, of course. and having my family come to help me celebrate.

Can't believe it is the last week of September! The weather has been superb and it looks like it will continue through this week. Enjoy...
