A Thoughtful Friend

I want to send a big hug and a huge thank you to my incredibly thoughtful friend Lori! She sent me the most wonderful package in the mail and I was beside myself when I opened it! I was so blessed to find a copy of the announcement she had posted on her blog when the Prince was born, inside a beautiful pearl frame. Heart be still!  Tears streamed my face as I opened gift after gift from this incredible woman I had only met through the blogging world. The card, the wrapping, the words, the frame, the precious periwinkle outfit for my son, the sleep mask, lavender soap and sachets ...it was all so incredibly thoughtful and beautiful.  I am enjoying every single, wonderful gift! Thank you so much Lori. You have made a permanent impression on my heart ~ You radiate His goodness, His heart and His kindness. Your gift has reminded me of how we are to hold each other up, lift each other, edify one another, encourage one another, give, love and sow into each others' lives. This is what we are called to do.We are blessed to be a blessing.  I pray that you Lori, my dear, sweet friend would be blessed one hundred fold for your extraordinary kindness.

You are a blessing to us! I wish I could send you a gift for every inspiring post you have written. You have no idea how encouraging you are to us all!

The world is a better place now that it has one more of your pearls in it!

This is such a lovely gift--one to be treasured!

I am decorating my baby's room with bunnies--do you know, by any chance, where the sketch/picture came from that was on the announcement she sent?

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!
