Soulful Sunday

Ali,over at has a new meme . Now I’m not sure what a meme is but this what she says…

“I am wondering if there is room for a Sunday meme, open to non-gardener bloggers too?  I’m thinking ‘Soulful Sunday’.  This would be anything that makes you feel emotional, warm and fuzzy, grateful, inspired, appreciative of the world around us?  But also if you feel you need a little connection with positivity, a way of reaching out to others and feeling reassured that we are all part of the same universe, and that the overwhelming urge in this world is to share and understand one another, to show compassion and kindness.”

Well I do . .. Way back I was blessed to come across a wonderful blogger that I have never met in person and may never. But about that time my husband had a fatal heart attack and my world turned upside down. My new friend , and yes she is a dear friend, became my rock to lean on. Now a year ,almost two years later, I know I can depend on her to be there to encourage me and scold me when needed. You should also know she is probably much younger than I am but I love her like a sister,daughter, mother or neighbor and every thing  else between. She is a very talented artist and a grandmother so we have that in common, the grand -mother part any way. A few weeks ago she posted about finding a daffodil in the cold of UK and what a surprise it was. Well as fate will sometimes work another dear blog friend was inspired to write a poem about the daffodil. This other friend has become a special person in my life too so I decided to create  a special card for the two of them and here it is.


I already had this paper napkin with the tulips and daffodils so just adding the paper 3D daffodils from Elizabethcraftdesigns was a no brainer. I have been learning to craft these paper flowers from dies that Susan Tierney Cockburn designs. They are so unique and so much fun.

Treasure you special people. They come in when least expected and are a gift from our Father in Heaven. I haven’t checked with these two friends on this post but I am pretty sure they won’t mind my sharing how very special they are to me.
