Blessings of Loving little hearts.

Across the miles came a specially delivered package from Plant City Florida and this smiling bloggy sister!



http://marilarkin.blogspot.com/

In her blog this past week she told about a fun day with her sweet soulmate picking strawberries, and then showed a photo of these:



YUM!!! and this is what she typed under it!


"...some of my dear friends might be excited to know, some of these treats are on the way to your home." *Shhhhhh--it's supposed to be a secret!

Oh my. How exciting to get these delicious cookies. and YES THEY ARE!!! (she was wise enough to also include the recipe, knowing I would want it!)



Mari, I thank you for such a very personal and sweet gift. It is yummy and also warms my heart. Whatever small thing I did to encourage you I am so happy I could, and boy is my family glad to benefit from your delicious thank you.

Bless you my bloggy sister, and you have a generous sweet spirit.
Tell your hubby thank you for his part in all the fixin!

Just had to share about another special blog sister in this www. world.

Have a great week everybody. Thanks for your prayers for my mom and for my Marine, Justin. Sending a hug and a smiling heart from me to all of you!

Awww shucks. Man, am I ever glad that I had a new picture before you posted it here. LOL!!!!!
Love the big red heart...looks like my attempt at those on the cookies.
Glad you enjoyed them. I had more fun doing it probably than you had eating them!
((hugs as always!))

Hello there, my friend!

When I got on to do a post on my blog a few minutes ago I was looking down over my blog roll and saw Mari's picture under your blog title and it kind of made me take a second look and then I just had to chuckle. What is that saying, "You can't outgive God." I received that wonderful box from you today and the very same day you received a box from Mari! SO SO just like the Lord! I rejoice with you.

We continue to remember your mom and Justin in our prayers. I'd really hoped that by now you'd received that phone call from him.

Anyway...so glad for your blessing from the Lord today via Mari...and I've put up my thank you for the box He gave me today through you.

Oh...and it is as short as I could make it. ~wink~

Love and hugs to you, my friend,
Dianna

Aw, that was so sweet of Mari to do this for you. I can't imagine anyone else more deserving of this than you.

I've been keeping you and your family members in my heart and prayers. I also added a request to my church prayer box, so my whole church family is praying for you.

Enjoy your cookies, Julie! They do look yummy! God bless! Love ya!!

Thank you so much for your heartfelt congratulations! Can I let you in on a little secret? I am soooooooooooo happy!!! :XD You know what though? I never could have taken this step if it wasn't for my mom's constant encouragement. She really is the best. I just feel so bad about her losing her friend. She's been really down lately. I wish I knew what to do to make her really smile again, you know? Yeah, sure. She smiled when we got the news from UGA today, but I know she's still crying on the inside. ~sigh~

Oh, well. Sorry to lay this on you. Thanks again for your well wishes. ~hugs~
