Belated thanks...

This "thank you" is a few days late, but still very much heartfelt.

A beautiful basket of "get well" goodies was hand delivered by Carolina on Tuesday. It held this most adorable card, a tin with a huge container of soup and crackers, a tin of caramels and lollypops, tea, and loads of love.

Thank you for making me feel so warm and good when I was feeling so awful and icky!

Stephanie called me every day to check in on me to make sure I was okay... I can not tell you what that means to me. Thank you, love! I don't how you do it with your busy schedule! You are super mom and super friend.

Kristin, if you get to around to reading this, your call out of the blue today was perfect timing.
Thank you for lifting my spirits.

Thanks to all who wished me well - every wish helped make my day a bit brighter.
I love my boys but wish they kept their germs to themselves! lol!

Here is a poem I came across my birthday last year that I saved that I would love to share with you now:

True friendship isn't seen with the eyes, it is felt with the heart.
When there is trust, understanding, loyalty, and sharing.
True friendship is a rare feeling, but when it is found
It has profound impact on our well-being, strength, and character.
True friendship does not need elaborate gifts
Or spectacular events in order to be valuable or valued.
To ensure long-lasting quality and satisfaction,
True friendship only needs a few key ingredients:
Undying loyalty, unmatched understanding, unsurpassed trust,
Deep and soulful secrets, and endless sharing.
These ingredients, mixed with personality and a sense of humor,
Can make a friendship last a lifetime!
This is just a thank you, my friend, for all the wonderful and colorful
Special ingredients you've brought to my life!

Are those not the cutest button fairies. Jeri makes some adorable ones. I love all of hers so much. I am not sure if they are a fad now but I do know I love them andyou can get so creative with them. So easy and so much fun to make. Glad you stopped by. I went and had to take a pill tonight for the pain and of course they have the reverse effect on me so now I am up for the night...off to blog land I am going. lol
take care and see you soon
