Thank You

Holly is one of my blog readers, a patron of my art, and something of a new friend. She and I have been in contact for the past couple of months. She is really great and another example of how amazing blogging has been in my life. Seriously, I have met some wonderful and kind people through this small blog of mine.  Eric and I often reflect on what a great set of individuals I have come into contact with through this 'ol blog. I have made lifelong friends, met some truly inspirational people, and continue to be impressed by the people that I am meeting. I have saved some amazingly kind emails from readers and friends that I can read through on rough days.

I don't mean to get corny here, but I have so much gratitude for this reminder that the world is filled with good people. It is easy to become cynical about people, but I am fighting it tooth and nail against cynicism.  I am so happy to know that there are kind and decent people out there and I thank all of you for reading, emailing and touching our lives. My heart is full.

Imagine my surprise yesterday when I randomly received a box stuffed with amazingly thoughtful goodies from Holly!

She made these awesome name banners for the girls and for our family. I will be framing and proudly displaying them! Apple butter that I am just about to dive into. A sweet note and two little foxes that will be perfect in our home as I love little touches of whimsy.

Thank you Holly and thanks to all of you for reading, writing, gifting, and enriching my life. You have no idea how thankful I truly am.
