Thankful Thursday ~ Surprise

I have to tell you I am still able to celebrate my birthday.  This makes me so happy. :)  I received a lovely yellow packet from Cheryl, a dear blogger friend,   this week.  It was certainly worth waiting for.
It had a sweet hand written card with a beaded necklace and an inspirational garden journal in it. I wish you could see all the details.  The necklace has some cloisonne beads and all are the colors I wear. How did you know Cheryl?  The little journal has felt grass and  little lambs on some of the pages. Just too sweet.  It is that unexpected gift that really means so much. Thank you again Cheryl.
This is how I feel when I open my blog and find that all my friends have left comments. Each is a treasure. Thank you all for stopping by.

Lovely necklace and journal. You do seem to be a green and blue lady. Must be the plants and sky influence!
