Glenda's Wonderful Gift




There is a saying "When the Lord closes a door he opens a window." This has had so much meaning to me in the last eight months. I worked in a job for 23 years and trained the current elected official. This individual chose to treat me in an unscrupulous manner and after several things that occurred and much prayer I decided to take an early retirement. I was hurt at first and wondered why this happened to me. But, during this time I discovered blogging and some wonderful people along the way. I can not express to each of you how much your friendship has meant to me. A box arrived this morning from one of those wonderful friends. Glenda Brooks at http://glendabrooks.blogspot.com/ 
She made the above pictured flowers and sent them to me. I can not express how grateful and how touched I was with her beautiful gift. I wish I had better photographic skills but this will give you an idea of her fantastic flowers. She had a sweet little note saying she hoped I could use 'some' of these. LOL! The hardest thing will be keeping myself from hoarding them. It's what I do with favorite things. Glenda, I hope the state of Tennesse knows what a gem they have in you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my window is open wide and the spring breezes are warming me today because of you.
