Saturday a package arrived at my back door. I was so excited I didn't take a photo of the beautiful wrapping and packaging so just take my word for it. Pea outdid herself ! I love the perfume decanter. It is so delicate and beautiful. I have it sitting on my antique dressing table and it just fits right in perfectly. The tea candle stand is right next to my computer desk so I can see it every day and think of my special adopted Sis. The rooster canister is right at home on my kitchen island! Leave it to my dear Sis to know exactly what to send to make my birthday special. I especially love the card she sent with the gifts. That really touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. Pea never had a sister and my sister passed away in 1976 so since we have so many things in common we adopted each other and I am very blessed to have her as my Sis! Thank you Pea so very much for bringing smiles, comfort and love into my day. Fran's granddaughters Debra and Kathrine gave me a beautiful picture of Fran taken 2 months before her stroke. I have it sitting on my dining room table for now so I see it each time I pass in or out the back door or into the kitchen or hallway. I love being able to see the sparkle in her eyes and the smile on her face. That was the way she always was until her stroke.
I was ask by the family to write the obituary for the newspaper. I feel very honored to do this for such a special lady. I have written it over and over in my head but tonight I will do my best to put on paper all the wonderful things about a wonderful lady's life. Being given the honor of doing this is a special gift in itself.
