Those are seed packets of forget-me-nots. I opened that card Saturday when we got back home and just lost it. Julia, you sweetheart! Your card couldn't have been more perfect.
And yesterday, from my dear friend Allison and her family, a comfort-food picnic filled with love and LEMON SQUARES! (my all-time favorite dessert/cookie food):
Is that just gorgeous? Balm for the soul in so many ways.
When the mail came yesterday, Tom and I couldn't believe it. 87 cards arrived. EIGHTY-SEVEN. From you fabulous people. And thirteen of them came from New Jersey. I have exactly NO family in New Jersey. Allison, however, does, and it's clear that her loving nature and thoughtfulness is no anomaly in that group. Thank you, all of you.
