...and this is what I found in my little package!

I cannot tell you what happened to my heart at that moment. I couldn't even express it to this lovely woman. I will never be able to.
As lovely as this little gift is, to me this lady sent me a bit of her heart and that was her true gift.

And that is why I blog...
Thank you, Gloria. I love you back, Sis!! And thank you to all that have sent me their precious comments of encouragement and love over this past year...
so..if anyone ever asks you why you blog...send them to me! :)

Merry Christmas and God Bless all of you.


  1. Mona...Gloria is truly one of the most thoughtful, giving dearhearts you'd ever want to meet! What a sweet, adorable gift! Merry Christmas!

  2. What a cute tassel Gloria sent you. I love the little teapot top.

  3. How festive! It looks right at home at your house. We are expecting more snow, but not like on the East coast. I think we will have a white Christmas. I am just about done...all I have to do is paint a watercolor. I best get back to it. Have a wonderful weekend before Christmas.
