Yes. I have been blessed. Over and over and over again.
I have been deeply touched by your kindness. Thank you for your concerns regarding my recent bout with mastitis. I truly appreciate all of your comments. They have touched my soul.
Thankfully, with the use of antibiotics, I am feeling much, much better. Yesterday was the first day (since Monday) that I awoke fever-free and headache-free.
I have been blessed in so many ways since the baby was born, only 11 days ago.
My friends have been wonderful.
I have been blessed with seven (yes, 7) meals. My mother, Sandy (who co-hosted my baby shower), Lauren, Kim, and Amy brought dinners ... full meals including fattening desserts. My dear friend, Kathie not only brought a ton of food for lunch on Monday (my first day of feeling terrible), but she vacuumed my floors and mopped my kitchen floor! (And, yes, I am feeling bad that she did that job, but she was insistent!) And my mother brought lunch for me and the children (and drugs -- for me, not the kids) on Tuesday. We've had so much food, that we had leftovers for dinner last night and still have some food left! And offers of help and still been coming in!
Friends have visited me with Whatchamacallits; tiny Army hat; a pink handknit scarf; a true U.S.-style baby bunting (a.k.a. snowsuit); flowers and a stuffed frog (which has been kidnapped by older siblings); a scrapbook and baby boy stickers; a baby book; and baby outfits just to name a few.
And then I received a yummy little package from Shirley at Warm Fuzzies. The chocolate is actually a bookmark! How cute is that? And the little spider web earrings. Completely adorable! I love, love, love Halloween! (You may want to look at her blog to see better photos.)
I stumbled upon Shirley's blog through Craftster. I saw an adorable mouse pin cushion, with a link to her blog. Shirley is incredibly talented. She illustrates, knits and crochets, sews, cooks, and (new to me) makes jewelry! You have to browse through her blog. It is amazing.
Thanks, again, Shirley! I love them.
