I will be sharing some of the recipes from this wonderful cookbook in some future posts.
I have a friend ..dear to my heart. Though we have never met in person,we have a strong bond and tie to one another. I call her my sister friend because she is that dear to me. Our relationship began with a copy of Country Decorating Magazine years ago...long before I ever owned a computer.....I found her in the Pen Pal section! Out of the list I read....I picked her to write too as a Pen Pal...my first pen pal ever! Since then,I have had a few more over the years but,her and I discovered soon enough it was by divine appointment that our lives intertwined. She knows my heart....and I hers. Our interest in vintage dolls and toys is what sparked our friendship but,it went far deeper than that and what is so beautiful is I believe with all my heart...God saw us so far apart but,knew we would need one another....My dear sister friend has been a bright spot in my sometimes very dark world and for that I will always be grateful for Father God for that divine appointment so very many years ago.Speaking of my sweet friend...this week I received the nicest little package from her. She knows my interest in the Amish Way and send me the cookbook you see above,also these very sweet postcards predicting "Amish Country"..there was a few other nice things as well..like some fun spring stickers,etc....what fun we have had exchanging care packages over the years.
For birthdays,holidays and sometimes...Just because! Just as was this time.
Thank you for this sweet surprise package my dear sister friend....
I have made some wonderful friends in all of you as well......thanks to all my friends for all you do to touch my heart.......Blessings,Shelley
