I have to say that this package coming today was an example of God's perfect timing. I was really struggling today. It's cold and wet and I'm hurting. I've been very depressed and couldn't seem to snap out of my funk. But Lynn's package was like a spot of sunshine. When I opened it and read her letter, I could see how much thought she put into making things just for me. She knows my faith is a strong part of who I am and she made me this cute little candle mat.
It's on my table right now. She also included a candle holder and flameless candle. It's another perfect provision because I can't use anything with an open flame around my cats. Jack is a budding pyromaniac and is seduced by fire. It's too dangerous to let her near one. But this candle has an on/off switch and is perfectly safe for them. I've had it on all afternoon and have caught each cat exploring it. I tried to get pictures of them with it, but they were a little spooked and ran off. Lynn also included several other goodies in my package...
She included a Christmas ornament which was also perfect timing. After having skipped it the last several years, I've been talking to Mr. Quilting Bug about putting a tree up this year. And I've been looking in the stores for new ornaments to go on it. This will definitely be one of them. She also included a quilting magazine and a chocolate bar. The chocolate bar is dark chocolate with caramel in the middle. It's delicious. I have to confess that I've already eaten half of it.
Lynn's package arriving today was so awesome. It gave me a lift when I really needed one. Thank you so much Lynn!
