Friends and Flowers

Hi Blogging Friends,

I wanted to share this lovely bouquet of flowers that was brought to my door this afternoon.
My dear friend Maggie sent these to me for my birthday.....they are so Beautiful and Maggie is an absolute doll to think of me. I know we all talk about our friendships here in blogland that we have found, and I know we appreciate each other very much. My life has changed so much in the last 9 years. I have had many surgeries and things going wrong physically which limited me quite a bit. Since 2003 I have not been able to drive anymore and that in itself was a big blow to me. I inherited a rare disease of the corneas in which I have had multiple surgeries for over the years, hence no more driving.
Well I can go on but I will stop there. The real point in all of this is I have been
lonely and needed somehow to connect with people and then I discovered the
World of Blogging!!  WOW...I never dreamed that I would meet such
loving and caring folks. My cup runneth over...and not lonely anymore!!

Thank you ALL for your Friendship towards me and Thank you Maggie
as they say "you shouln't have"....but, Thank you  so much!!!!!

Love and Blessings to All,

Susan

  5. Susan, I hope your birthday has been a very happy one.
    I saw the ATC you made. How pretty. I always wanted to paint a fish pond with koi on a floor cloth. No, I haven't even started it.

    I am a Georgia gal too, I live in Lilburn, just east of Atlanta.
