One morning as I sat down to work on Josh's bog, I received the most wonderful and unexpected email. It was from a nice lady named Melissa. She explained that she follows my blog and just wanted to send me an email to let me know that she was thinking of me and hoped my absence was for happy reasons and not worrisome. Of course she worded it way more beautifully and eloquently then I am able to recreate in this lil' post. It touched me so very much. It was almost as if fate took control and gave me a hug when I was feeling blue working on my nephew's blog. I emailed her back to thank her for such kindness and I think the flood gates opened and before I knew it, I found myself explaining to her all about Josh's blog and how much it meant to my heart to get it started. She returned my email with her gentle kind words knowing exactly what to say to once again give me a warm hug. I shared the blog with her and was so comforted knowing she would not view his blog as a stranger peeking in but as a cherished family friend, visiting our Josh's blog with a warm heart and knowing what he meant to his family. She once again returned my email in her same comforting gentle words, but this time she truly surprised me and gave me goosebumps on my arms.. She asked if she could make a donation towards one of the items we had up to raise money for all the legalities it takes to make a future foundation in Josh's name so that one day, it can be an official, non-profit foundation. I was completely blown away at her generosity in reaching out to a family that she had never met, to make a donation. Not only did she make a donation, but along with her donation money, she sent me a gift. I wanted to share this story of Melissa with all of my friends here and ask that you wish her a happy thought. I can't even begin to thank Melissa, and all of you for being the most thoughtful, supporting, caring and loving group of wonderful people in the whole world. I truly cherish all of you. I really, really do.
Oh my gosh! I have been busy as a beaver (and a bee) this morning working on all the lil' things from the past month that I want to share with you all! I will begin my posting extravaganza (lol) with a wonderful surprise in August from my friend Linda! I have missed you all! I have so much catching up to do!
Hello and thank you for visiting! Keeping the home fires burning is one of my most important jobs as a military wife and mother. Military life requires our family to be apart many times throughout the year. Creating a warm and cozy home for my husband and children to gather when times blesses us to be together is so very important to me..
I was so blessed to have purchased a few graphics and logo banners from Sheryl at Sheryl's Originals a few years back... She was such a nice lady to do business with and her work truly charmed my heart.. Her amazing talents will be enormously missed..
