"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

I get by...

...with a little help from my friends.

After what seemed to be a trying last few weeks I was pleasantly surprised to find my mailman bearing a package addressed to me.

At first I did not recognize the return name and address, often fellow bloggers don't use their real name, and it took me a moment to realize that it was from Karen-Deborah from Fresh Fixins.

I couldn't wait to tear open gently unwrap the beautiful sage green tissue paper...my favorite color by the way.  Inside I was delighted to find two books...Rose from Brier by Amy Carmichael and Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden by Emily Whaley.  Alongside these two reads was a lovely box of 'Earl Gray Lavender Tea.'  How did she know how much I love tea?  There were even a few goodies stashed in there too!  And...a beautiful card.  Thank you KD, your friendship means the world to meand your thoughtful gift could not have come at a better time.

lovin' my bloggy friends,

  10. Hi Jojo,
    Isn't this wonderful of your sweet friend! I think I know what you'll be doing this weekend.

  11. How nice. It's always uplifting to get a surprise!!! Is that Charleston, SC in that book? Did you know I was from Charleston, SC? I lived there 42 years before coming to Ohio. It's a beautiful city.

    God Bless~
