Gifts of Friendship

This picture was a birthday gift to me,along with some other things from my dear friend Betty.  She knows how I love my dolls,and said this made her think of me  :)  I love it,and hung it up in my bedroom.

I also received another package in the mail just yesterday, from another one of my blogging friends. I am so blessed with friendship....I thank God so very much.  I am still amazed as to how this blog has connected me with so many like minded friends. I never dreamed of the friendships that were in store for me when I first starting blogging here years ago,but I am so happy to say it has brought me many lasting friendships from all over this country and even from other parts of the world as well..

A sweet little Raggedy Ann was in the box keeping these wonderful books company.

Can't wait to read this one.....the little card is hand drawn by my friend Helen ,maybe you know her too from Dollz and Thingz, found  here .  The card says celebrate today ,and let me tell you...I did celebrate ..with tears.  I am so humbled at the kindness shown me...truly.

And at the bottom of the box, I could not believe my eyes when I saw this first edition of the book , Hitty,the very same one I just checked out from the library and just finished reading. Now,I have my very own to read again and again. Thank you...thank you... dear Helen....your box of goodies made me smile BIG.....and brought to me much joy...blessings!

Blessings to all of you dear friends....Shelley
