THANK YOU, PICKET

I woke up this morning and immediately knew that I was coming down with some sort of stomach virus but prayed that I would be able to go teach my Sunday school class. I made it through church, but when I got home I went straight to bed and slept for most of the afternoon. Thankfully, I feel much better. My husband came in to check on me late this afternoon and said our neighbor brought a package that had come for me while we were in Louisiana. He asked if I wanted him to open it......OF COURSE I DID! There was a note in it.
Several weeks ago, Picket asked me where I had gotten some napkins that I had made some pillows out of. She said she had been looking for some. I emailed her and asked for her address. I was so glad that I could send her some. This is one sweet lady!!! I know from the number of comments that she gets that you all feel the same way about her. I sure didn't expect anything in return. Anyway.....when my husband opened the box and read the note he said "Picket"...who is that? I told him that was my friend (who I have never met). I was completely blown away by the gift. Look at what she sent me....
They don't show up as well in this picture but they are these wonderful "black" plaques with glass doorknobs and two hooks on each plaque. I can't wait to hang them and I'll have to make a picture later to show that.
Thank you, Dot (Picket)!! I know that the world is a better place because you have made a difference in so many people's lives. I'm glad blogging brought us together as friends!!!

Sue, Those are beautiful! Picket did good, she did real good!

Isn't it nice to get a surprise like that when you are not feeling well. It just boosts your spirits and makes you look forward to feeling better.
