Not too long ago, I had a 200th Post Giveaway, featuring this FITZ and FLOYD rooster plate....

Sweet ADRIENNE was the winner and I was delighted. She is such a sweetheart and I hope that you will pop over to see her and take a look at her sweet and gentle blog. It is such a delight and the music she shares with us is awesome and comforting and a pure joy to listen to.

I tucked in just a few more small gifts for her.....

She had these sweet words to share with me ......

"The sweet little note of friendship that BJ included made my heart sing. Thank you, dear friend. I'm so glad we met. I will always treasure the special gifts you gave to me. It won't be long before I show you where I put them. Until then I'll just enjoy each part of this special gift from a special lady who I am proud to call my friend. "
REMEMBER the old saying that "IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE"? It must be true because it really made me feel good to give to ADRIENNE.
Her friendship makes MY heart sing!
Blessings today~

Good Morning BJ,
I am so glad that Adrienne loved the gifts you sent her. I see some Tupelo suckers do I? Are those Honey Suckers? My DH and his Uncle were finally able to start driving yesterday morning around 10:15a.m. They made it to Salt Lake City and then made it to North Las Vegas last night. They won't be able to get unloaded in North Las Vegas until sometime this morning. I doubt they will be able to make their Minnesota/Wisconsin run this week. That load picks up today and they won't be back into Memphis till sometime tomorrow morning. "THANK YOU" so much for your prayers for them. I do appreciate it very much. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Dear Friend -
What a pleasure to check in with you and read your kind words. This was so much fun. I couldn't have enjoyed it any better - unless you had knocked on my door and delivered the package yourself!
Blessing to you today,

It is beautiful when friends come together, give of themselves and make the other's heart sing.

You are a very special person and I'm so glad that we met through our blogs. Thank you for your kind comments on my post about Brandon's Asperger's Syndrome. You made my day.
