Sometimes things happen at just the right moment. For me, Saturday was that moment. I have Dad and Mary to thank for this.
Until I walked out onto the front porch and found a box sitting by the front door that afternoon I had not felt the Christmas spirit. Well, I had not a clue what was in the box or who had sent it.
I came back into the house with the box and Ian saw me carrying the box and asked me what it was. I told him I had no idea, but that I had found it left on the front porch by the mail person.
I opened the packing list on the top of the box and saw who it was from...
YOUR TENNESSEE FRIENDS! DAD AND MARY
I got really excited and began getting the tape off of the box and opened it up and what I pulled out just melted my heart.
If ever there were two kinder souls on this Earth I dont know who else they would be but Dad and Mary.
I just want you two to know, you lifted me up so high and thrust me in head first into the Christmas spirit. Thankyou so much for that.
Now look here, this is what I pulled out of the box...isn't this just beautiful?
Inside this beautiful planter are Amaryllis. The paper you see there tells you exactly how to take care of it properly. I plan on taking VERY good care of it. This is a very special gift and I want to have it around always to remind me of what special people Dad and Mary are and how lucky I am to have run across his journal. He truly lifts me up every morning.
Merry Christmas Dad and Mary, God Bless You Both.
Thankyou so much for this beautiful living gift!
