Friends, the best Lifesavers

I worked myself into a state of deep depression over the past month. Everything that should have brought joy forced me to jump overboard and not even hold my nose.

Today while I was splashing around and wondering why I don't just stop treading water and let it go, a friend reached out her hand from New Jersey and rescued me with an extreme generous surprise gift.
This is not the first time this has happened.

Tom, http://quiltingandcarving.blogspot.com/, have all kept me afloat these past months. Just when things seem fruitless, one of these friends have dropped something in the mail that brings me back to knowing I should dump the uglies and embrace the woozers.

Today was a Woozer Day...BIG TIME.

Talia, http://thetaliaeffect.blogspot.com/, dropped me a line and said she had gone shopping and wanted to share. A Fat Quarter, some beads? I missed the retreat and was happy to have her share because I was really down in the dumps.

I had to use 2 tables to spread it all out so I could get a real good look at all this wonderful stuff.
My son had to order Pizza for dinner because I cleared the kitchen table to sort it all out! No one
is allowed near it. I was so busy sorting I forgot I was about to give up the ship!


I missed the retreat, I missed the shopping trip, the sharing a meal together, but Talia's heart is just so huge she pulled me right into the feeling of having been there and met them all!
Thank you Princess!
