Surprises and a celebration...

I went out to the mailbox yesterday and I had a little package from my cousin, Jeannie. Even though I don't see my cousins or talk to them as much as I would like, we have remained a close family for years. I was so excited to hear from her that I ripped into the package right there at the mailbox. I couldn't even wait to get back to the house. What was inside made me scream! I was so EXCITED. Check it out. She made me a dishtowel with Pyrex bowls. And they are the Cinderella style that I love. Words cannot describe how happy I was. 


I dashed in the house, showed Hubby and rushed to the kitchen to hang it up. I knew exactly where I wanted it. It looks so pretty hanging there and the colors go perfect with my collection. Hubby keeps laughing at me because I keep going in the kitchen and just staring at it and saying "I can't believe I have a Pyrex dishtowel. Doesn't it look pretty hanging there?


I want to give a Happy Anniversary shout to a very precious friend of mine. Ms. Norma had a milestone anniversary yesterday. She celebrated the 10th year of her lung transplant. For someone who was told the transplant should add about 5 years at the most to her life, 10 is a major, major reason to celebrate. She is such an inspiration to anyone who knows her. God has blessed her in so many ways and anybody that knows her is inspired by her strength, her will, and most importantly by her unshakable faith in God. I hope you will take 2 minutes to watch this video of Ms. Norma on the Dr. Bob Show. She is one of the most special women I know.

Unexpected gifts are the best.....especially when they are Pyrex related!

Have a great weekend,
