Special Thanks

When I got home after visiting my grandson in ICU, I had a surprise on my doorstep.  I was feeling sort of sad, and when I opened this gift  from Mary at  Blogging Sisters, my spirits were immediately raised.  

Inside I found A bright red album, a card kit, wooden prim heart with red glittery ice skater, and 

A blessing bell inscribed with "Health".  The tag says" Blessing fill this heart for you
Prayers I pray to come true.
Hear the jingle of the chime.
Remember you are on my mind"
It sounds a soft tinkle when it is moved.  Thank you Mary.
Then just a few minutes ago, Mr Mailman-he is becoming one of my favorite people--delivered another package.  
This one from that talented artist--Cindy at Whimsical Musings. It was the precious woolen suit from her giveaway, It is so soft and charming--the top decorated with a vintage touch.  And included was one of Cindy's tags.  
In typical Cindy style it conveys the message of "Believe".  She also made a personalized card for my grandson that he is thinks is great.  So thank you Cindy for your thoughtfulness.  Be sure and visit both of these friends.
