Yes, I know when you read this it will be the day after, Valentine's Day, but I am up still, probably from the chocolate I have enjoyed this evening. It was a chocolate kind of day here and we all enjoyed wonderful chocolate from Belgium, a local chocolatier - Capital Confections, Bridge Mix from The Peanut Shop in Williamsburg, Lindt, and last but not least Ghirardelli.
This morning something so special happened that I have to share it with you. While I was in the garage working hard on sorting my fabric stash into bins to put onto the shelving DH and son#2 & #3 installed all day Saturday, a special delivery came to my front door step. No one knew when it arrived. It was all wrapped in cellophane and tons of pretty white scalloped tissue. When I opened it I burst into tears of joy and deep appreciation of the precious treasure I held in my hands. Melinda, one of the Knot-y Embroidery Ladies made this. It is beautiful to see and hold.
It is still bringing tears to my eyes.
I feel loved by my friends and family and I sure do love them. Son#1 called me across the country at the end of his shift as he headed home to "the other two women in his life", my daughter-in-heart and Tinkerbell. Got to talk to my 85 year old mother in the "old country". I am blessed beyond measure and far more then I deserve.
