Amazing mail blessings!!!

I just have to show you the most wonderful package that I received in the mail yesterday!!! First let me tell you what happened. A sweet woman, Ann, contacted me about a week ago. She has an antique store in Texas, was cleaning up and cleaning out and wanted to know if she could send me a package of things that she thought that I could use in my artwork. If not, she was going to donate them to the thrift store. I thanked her so much for thinking of me and could I please pay the postage to Georgia? No, she replied, she is blessed all the time and wanted to do this for me . . . Well, her package arrived on my doorstep and I was AMAZED at the contents!!

Dear Ann, please know that you made my eyes fill with tears as I pulled each and every little treasure from your package. How thoughtful, generous and kind you are!!! It was so full of things that I would have purchased if I'd been shopping.

Thank you so, so very much!!

Kindness is the most touching thing. It never ceases to amaze me how it makes you feel when someone is kind to you ~ Thank you so very much, dear Ann . . . I must get busy creating!!!















I hope I didn't post too many photos but I wanted you to enjoy everything.

I'm working on a neat project for Christmas to be published!! I wish I could share but I have to wait :( I will be adding some new items to my Etsy in the next couple of days, chalkboards and handpainted signs that I did! Hope you have a great Friday and if you haven't entered my 500th Post Giveaway, please click the button in the upper right hand corner of my blog!!

xxoo, Dawn

How lovely! God bless Ann, and the Anns of this world.

I recognized the little clippie things that my mom used to have attached to her girdle that held up stockings. I haven't seen those things in years. ;-)

Isn't it wonderful to have a random act of kindness bestowed on you? Your post brought tears to my eyes. Alice W. did that to me just as Ann did to you. God bless all those beautiful souls and God bless you for sharing your talents.

Jann said...

How wonderful! Dawn, you are such a sweet, sweet person and to me, this is a perfect example of how the kindness one shows to others comes back full circle. You can never post too many photos--I love looking at them! In the 3rd photo from the top, I recognized a copy of a bird book that sat in the bookshelf of my parent's mountain cabin. When I was young, I often got that book out to look at all the birds and to identify the mountain birds that I saw outside. It brought back sweet memories for me, seeing that book in your photo. Smiles to you, Jann
