I forgot to go down and check the mailbox yesterday, so I did it this morning. Yesterday was a good mail day!
Shelley from Simply Shelley sent a very nice box of goodies, for me. You know, I never question...or try not to question...God's timing and I have to say, He was right on time, with Shelley's wonderful gift. I've been feeling kind of blue lately. It's the weather, I'm sure, but I really needed a "pick-me-up" and Shelley certainly made me smile, this morning. Lovely potholders, a precious card with just the right sentiment. A sweet little Mary Englebreit book filled with recipes for all manner of sweetness! Some cupcake decorating stencils that I am sure my grand daughter will love since she loves baking and cooking! A set of nail files...I'm still wondering how she knew I needed those! See God works in mysterious ways! I just said, this morning, "I really must put nail files on my list, for when I go into town next.". All of these things are lovely and I will put them to good use...But the icing on the cake was...
Sweet little Zuki! She is a sock doll that Shelley hand made. I loved her the first time I saw her on Shelley's blog and now she has adopted me! She came with her birthday girl ribbon and baby shower invitation. I just love the pretty swaddling cloth she is wrapped up in.
As any good Mama does, I had to unwrap her and check out her little feet and hands. Little Zuki has on a "onesie" made from the same fabric as the swaddling cloth. Too, too, sweet! I love her blue eyes and isn't that little "paci" the cutest thing!
Such a nice, uplifting, thing for Shelley to do. I can't put into words how much getting her package means to me. I truly believe God puts people on our paths to make the journey just a bit brighter. I'm thanking God, this morning, for Miss Shelley. I hope you will visit her blog and say hello to a sweet lady!
