I could not believe my eyes! Joanne had emailed me a few weeks ago when I was going through my kidney stone ordeal. She said that she belong to a group of people who like to perform Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) and she would like my address to send me something for being under the weather. Actually, it felt more like being under the bus, but I am trying to be positive...LOL! Anyway, I told Joanne that just her taking the time to send me an email to check on me was a random act of kindness. I told her I appreciated it very much. I gave her my address, but never expected such a generous gift. I was absolutley speechless! To tell the truth, I actually cried when I saw it. I could not believe that someone would take the time to make such a nice gift for me.
Notice how Joanne personalized it for me. A D for Dan, a J for Jeff, and a P for the Ps x 3. Isn't that wonderful!
This is what Joanne put on the back of the rug. I have always loved the television show Little House on the Prairie so I was delighted to see a quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Joanne also sent me this wonderful flag. It is primitive perfection. I cannot thank Joanne enough for her generosity and thoughtfulness. I will cherish this gift forever. It makes having kidney stones bearable, almost...LOL! To visit this very talented lady's blog, click ~Here~. Tell her Dan sent you.
I have not hung the hooked rug yet because...now brace yourself...this may come as a shock to some of you...I am painting the basement! I know, I know it is about time I pick up a paint brush. Anyway, I am wanting to hang the rug in the basement so I better hurry and finish painting so I can.
The second package I opened was this cute little guy!
You may recognize him as one of Lana Testa's creations. She has been creating a series of dolls for each issue of A Primitive Place magazine. This cute American bear is for the summer issue which is out now.
The bear was sent to me by Kristine Berg Doss the editor of A Primitive Place magazine. I cannot thank Lana and Kristine enough for their generosity and hard work. I will cherish him always. To order your bear, click ~Here~.
I really do not know why I have been so blessed, but I am really thankful!
