A Sweet Gift....

Today I got such a pleasant surprise in the mailbox.  I know I have told you about my Aunt Barbara.  She is like a second mom to me.  She has had her battle with broken hips the last few years and lost my uncle after 62 years of marriage a couple years back.  She is slowing down and doesn't get out as much as she used to.  I always send her an ornament for her Christmas tree each year.  She has a helper that puts it up each year and I tell her she needs a new ornie each year!

Well this year she surprised me! 
 She sent me these sweet little crystal snowman earrings.

I tell you this is just such a precious treat for me.  She must have found them at a little store in town that she goes to occasionally.  They are a treasure to me, as she is!

The ornaments are so sweet -- thank you for the reminder to treasure the wonderful older people in our lives. I, too, am blessed with several who are truly loved. Annie

How sweet of Aunt Barb! I know she's not very mobile, which makes them all the more special.
Tell her I said hi and send my best.

Oh Ceekay what a darling pair of earrings from your Aunt. It's these special treasures that make Christmas so wonderful. You can just see her shopping for those and excited to send them to you.
She must be a special lady.
