"I Got A Surprise"

Hello all....Got some what of a late start this morning in blogging cause Amanda doesn't have to be at school until later due to testing, but the seniors don't have to take, and I like to blog when no one is around. I got a surprise in the mail yesterday, it's the sweetest thing, I'd post a picture but Amanda didn't take one for me, and I don't know how to down load from a camera, I got a "Willow Tree" angel....It's a "Thinking Of You" and she's simply sweet, she's holding a pink sea shell up to ear, with one hand gently on her heart, and her head is slightly tilted towards the shell, like she's listing to the ocean, like we all do when we pick up those one shell's, you know they have no facial expression but I can picture her with her dainty eyes closed, and a sweet but soft smile on her, her hair is a soft brown in color, and looks silky soft, she's just simply beautiful, and I have her where every one can see her an admire her, and I am reminded of a great friendship when I look at her all day! Amanda's already put her bids on her, you know..."Mom, when you decide to leave this world can I PLEASE have her" I'm like "AMANDA, I don't plan on leaving any time soon, so until then we can enjoy her together, end of request!" If any of you don't have one of these "Willow Tree" doll's I strongly advise you to get one, there is something about them that makes them unique, and such a pleasure to own, I just LOVE mine, and the meaning behind her makes all the more special to me, so go out and get one, they're a great addition to the family................

Well, we need to make a pact and plan to live to be 100+. Did you walk yesterday? I slowly made it around the drive way for my 10 minutes, but hey, it's a start.

One of the nice things about owning special treasures like your new willow doll is holding them in your hands and remembering what they mean to you, but you already know that. I'm so glad you had your surprise and can enjoy that moment for years to come.

Hope your day today is another special day! Hugs, Phyllis
