I am grateful for my dear friend, Edith. She became a family friend when I was a child and has been an inspiration and godly example to me all of my life.
She told me this was coming. And it arrived. Today! Edith sent me this box of treasures!
Tony was almost as delighted as I was!
There was a pretty card, with a loving handwritten note inside.
There was a picture of Edith!
When she read my White Wednesday post about milk glass she realized she had my hen's twin, but with a red comb.
There was also a teeny tiny hen!
Three lovely napkins with beautiful detail.
Edith is one of the prayer warriors I call on when an urgent need arises.
She was an invaluable source of insight and experience when I was a single parent.
She's been an inspiration to me, of godly character, love and perseverance.
She's on FaceBook!
A lovely inlaid wood pin, a beautiful brooch and 4 napkin rings.
A more detailed picture of the brooch.
I have gifts from over the years from Edith throughout my home. When I went to college, Edith made up a laundry basket filled with useful things I would need in the dorm. She included this little plaque that she made.
She made this plaque for Chickie's room when she was born. The bunny's tail is a tiny pompom.
This was my first sewing kit. The elastic is shot now, 30 years later, but it had everything I needed in it for a quick clothes repair.
Edith shares my love for animals. I love this darling puppy/kitten picture!
She has been a wonderful friend for most of my life. Edith opened her home to me when Mister was undergoing prostate cancer surgery in her town years ago. She had women college students boarding with her for years, so she has recently been sharing insight with me on the process of girls going to college and becoming independent.
She has encouraged me and cheered me on all the way.
Thank you Edith, for the blessing you have been in my life!
I love you!
I am joining Heidi today for Wednesday Gratitude, and Faded Charm for White Wednesday.Have a wonderful Wednesday!
