Deb, one of my very first blog readers (by the way I don't think I ever replied to that first comment. I never answered her question, and yet she still came back for more), was a HUGE encouragement when I first started blogging.
And, just recently she was HUGE encouragement to me in another way . . . she sent me a box of goodies full of wonderful stuff (shhh . . .don't tell anyone but that box of thin mints is already empty). She made me a dishcloth in my new kitchen colors, and she picked out a book for me that has several pages about journeys and paths (I'm not sure if that was on purpose or not, but I love it!!). She even sent me a sunflower from her garden--how fun!! And, there were lots of other goodies inside too. I was TOTALLY overwhelmed by her kindness as I opened the package this week.
