I went to breakfast with my dear, dear friend Vanessa today.
She arrived carrying a big bunch of envelopes tied up with a beautiful hot pink bow, and they were all for me!
I really had to control my self to keep from making a scene in the middle of the Original Pancake House...
They were all from my cyber pals. Vanessa got in touch with them and they all sent me the most beautiful cards and gifts from when Natalia was in the hospital a couple of months ago.
I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly good that made me feel. Knowing I can call such an amazing group of women my friends, is just too much.
I read and LOVED every one of the cards. All full of prayers and good thoughts for Natalia and for me, during what was one of the hardest times in my life.
I hadn't been able to see Vane until now, so it was a great surprise to get them.
Nati and I played with the super cool gifts Laura sent her (Thank you!!!!) and we had a blast.
She also watched the DVD Vane got her, and hasn't let go of her Care Bear all afternoon :)
She got glitter glue, stickers, happy faces, playing cards... A whole bunch of gifts!!
Even I got some goodies from my sweet Joanne.
Se loved me reading all the cards to her, and she got so excited to be getting some mail too.
These past two years have been really tough for me in many ways. I would not have been able to go through it all if I didn't have the amazing support of all my friends.
You all mean the world to me and I LOVE YOU.
