Amazing Kindness

Sometimes people do things that are so thoughtful and kind that it just blows my mind.

I’ve been the blessed recipient of kindness like this and I’m so very thankful.

After a post of mine a few months ago where I was talking about my Pink Teddy, the wonderful, sweet and talented Lisa at blondiesBEARista made for me the most adorable gift and then made the gift a big sister too!


Are they not the most precious things you’ve ever seen???

I mentioned that as much as I love teddies, I’d never received one that was homemade.

Well, Lisa took care of that! And I got TWO!


Look at their adorable and happy faces. their little scarves and bonnets. I just wanna eat ’em up!

I told Lisa that they’ll be drool colored within a year, but that’ll just go to show how much love they’ll be getting.

Lisa, dear friend, you made my heart melt with your kindness and love. That you would do something so special and above-and-beyond for me leaves me almost without words (and we all know how hard that is to accomplish!). Every time I look at them it just fills me with joy. To know you would take the time (and the money as I’m sure the materials and shipping weren’t cheap) to do something so precious means more to me than I could ever fully articulate.

Just know, sweet girl, that these two teddies will receive tons of love and always be looked upon with a smile and an overflowing heart.

Thank you, so very much, for giving me two new little buddies and making me feel loved. You are truly one of a kind.

Love is all about the ketchup!

Things to notice about how the hubby fixed me lunch:

  1. The olive and parsley garnish. How friggin’ cute is that???
  2. He cut the crust off my light bread (gotta save calories when I can.)
  3. He glopped ketchup all over the hotdog, but he knows I like more ketchup than will fit on a hotdog, so he made me the happy ketchup man as a bonus.
  4. He positioned one of my favorite teddy bears (Daisy Pockets) right by my snack.

This, my friends, is true love. Just like I say in my books, it’s not about the money. It’s not about the big vacations. It’s about all the little things your love does to show you how they feel. My heart about exploded when I saw this. Talk about heart warming. 🙂

Tonight, I think all of you should do something like this for your honey. (Uh oh, I used the word “should.” How naughty of me!) It’s the kind of thing they’ll remember for a long time and what a wonderful way to start the weekend. Dammit, I love gooey stuff! I know, I’m a dork.
