I've Got Mail

 Yesterday was a wonderful day for me!  I got home from the vet's office and found a package on my doorstep.  Usually all the packages that come are for my husband due to his job.  But this one had MY name on it.  And it was from a wonderful woman that I have meet thru the blogging world.  Sweet Trish sent it to me!!  I scurried into the house and quickly took off my coat and gloves so I could see what was inside.
 I knew it was going to be something wonderful with this written on the outside!
And this is what was inside!!  A sweet note from her to me.  Some Mary Engelbreit recipe cards.  Boy does she know me well!  A wonderful quilting magazine that I have already devoured page by page dreaming about making projects from it.  And lastly....the most darling quilted  runner that she had made with her own two hands.  For me.  I was overwhelmed with gratitude.  I would be lying if I said there were not tears involved with me opening this.  I have heard that it is not a quilt without tears, but I always thought that meant tears from the one who made it.  But today, I have discovered that saying can also mean from the one who receives.  Thank you so much sweet friend for your gift of kindness to me.  It is perfect and I love it all.
