Birdie Swap and Thank You

Hi everyone!!! I have missed you all so much!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your well wishes and prayers! It means so much! This has been a very trying last few weeks! I pray this is the beginning of things improving. It's a very long story and I won't go into it all here. My hubby and I are wonderful and so are the kids. We have just had a tough time with outside of our immediate family and their issues. Maybe one day I will fill you in...for now we are trying and praying that things get back to normal asap!

I did get a HUGE pick me up this week from my Birdie Swap partner Terri from Grace Notes !!! She sent me a wonderful package full of all things birdie!!! I just love it all and thank her so very much! It was fun getting to know her better through the swap...stop by and say hi to her!

She made me the cutest little bird house, which is now on my kitchen windowsill. I started making over that windowsill just before the package arrived. Perfect timing!!! The sweet little birdie and nest are also on that windowsill. Terri picked up the nicest little bird book, now I can look up all those new birds that show up on my patio! She made me the sweetest ledger book! Love the colors...hmmm...maybe I can learn to stick to my new budget using this book! Perfect timing AGAIN! And lastly, the prettiest picture frame! It is now on my mantle awaiting a photo of Emma! (You can click on the photos to enlarge)

Look what else she sent...isn't she sweet to remember Emma!?! Her doggy Gracie sent Emma this really soft, squeaky ball. Emma LOVES it!!! She loves things that squeak, especially balls! I will post some of the things I sent her soon!

I hope to be back to blogging soon! I need to regroup and catch up on everything here that I couldn't get to due to the crisis. I, especially, need to make my daughter's graduation from college invitations! Those should have gone out this week! So, yeah, I am WAY behind!!!! I will soon try to catch up with all of your blogs too. I have been lurking so I could have mental haven't left many comments, sorry!!!
Thank you all again and thank you Terri!!!

Hang in there. I can totally relate to dealing with problems outside my very close immediate family. Sometimes it's overwhelming. Family stuff is so hard.

What a wonderful package! You lucky girl!

Good to hear from you! Whatever the crisis may be that you're facing right now, just know that I'm praying for God to give you peace and clarity.

You sure got some great stuff in that swap! You lucky duck! Enjoy!
