Love this bag...

Isn't this a pretty Vera Bradley bag?  I sure think it is!  Some months ago I admired it when a friend came to my house for Bible study. Today she came to my house for a baby shower and gifted me with her bag! She remembered I liked it and now wanted me to have it.  I could not believe it and was touched by her kindness! In fact I had tears as I tried to thank her.  I do hope she knows how much it means to me! I will love using this bag and always think of her as I do!

Sweet surprise

Years ago I made strawberry jam for my mom and gave it to her in this jar. I made the top for the jar. It's one of the things I kept after she passed away. I found it recently and gave it to my daughter, Stacy. Tonight she called and said she had a surprise for us. Imagine my surprise when she walked in and handed me this jar...

containing homemade blackberry jam!
Not only will homemade biscuits taste wonderful tomorrow morning with this jam, but I will have sweet memories of my mom!

Thank you, Stacy, for this gift!
