Sometimes gifts arrive at just the right time. Just when I need an affirmation of joy and goodness and generosity in a world where there is terror and suffering nearby. It is humbling to receive such a gift, especially when it so clearly reflects a great investment of time, artistry, and expense.
Yesterday lives were lost and wounded in a nearby mall on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon, when a man randomly shot into the crowd of shoppers. A commentator noted this morning that while the act reflected the worst in one man, the actions of many around him reflected the best in many as they reached out to help others.
Shari, the blanket you crocheted for your giveaway from your blog, Lauren's Closet, is beautiful in every way. The soft cotton formed in a lovely pattern has already warmed me and been admired not only by me but by friends and members of my family. The praying angel ornament is beautiful as well, and it reminds me to appreciate "joy to the world the Lord is come," and pray that, "every heart prepare Him room...."
Thank you so very much, Shari, for your most generous gifts to me. I treasure them.
WOW :) **WONDER*OF*WONDERS** I am a winner indeed!!!
