Oh Happy Day!

I feel so incredibly blessed.  Blessed with good friends, fairly decent health, a wonderful husband, and my Lord and Savior who loves me in spite of my short comings.  I am also very thankful to have a wonderful neighbor.  Her name is Gloria.  When I moved back to Texas, she and her husband greeted me with a beautiful Welcome basket filled with all kinds of goodies.  She calls to check on me...comes over to visit...and is always so happy and cheerful.

I asked her one day if she would help me organize my closet and I would pay her to help me.  Well, our closet renovation turned into a three day job and I just love my new closet.  She would not accept any money for helping me.  On Valentine's Day, she came over with all kinds of baked goodies in a basket.  She is always so thoughtful.  I am so thankful to have her as my friend.

I made her the above card to thank her and purchased a Lemon Meringue Pie from a local bakery that bakes the most awesome goodies.  She does not have Internet so she will not see this post.  I just wanted to tell you guys about her because I am so thankful to have her in my life.

Do any of you have neighbors like that?  If you do, this post is a tribute to all of the wonderful friends that God brings into our lives to bless us.
