Wonderful News!! and a Sweet Present from a friend!!



Hello, dear friends! Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I recently received some wonderful news. Our family is going to have a new little chick in our nest! My youngest son, Aaron, and his wife, Corina, are going to have another child. They already have three beautiful little girls so this will be their fourth child. Our family is very excited about the good news! Congratulations, Aaron, Corina, Ally, Maggie and Henna!

Next, I would like to show you a beautiful plate that I received from my friend, Martha, of "Martha's Favorites". The other day she was showing some of the wonderful things she had found at a thrift store. I commented on how pretty I thought the blue handpainted plate (shown above) was. The next thing I knew she had it wrapped and sent on its way to me. Isn't that nice? She is a very kindhearted lady, and I invite you to visit her at: http://www.marthasfavorites.com
She sent along a sweet note and pretty blue beaded bracelet, too. I love my presents. I will find a special place in my home to display my blue plate. Thank you, Martha!

Although I am fairly new to blogging, I have met some wonderful friends here at Bunny Cottage. I cherish and value each one of you and your friendship. I would like to close with a wonderful quote about friends. I read it in a devotional book and the author is anonymous:

A friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where you've been, accepts who you've become, and still, gently invites you to grow.

I hope you are having a good day today. I am sending autumn blessings your way and hoping you will enjoy many friendships as you travel this journey called life.

I have been on the receiving end of Martha's generosity myself and it's a glorious thing! I just heard there is another goodie in the mail too! I can't wait. I've been wanting to send her a gift, but what do you get for the lady who already buys everything she wants! I'll have to keep my eye out for something.

Congratulations on your new grandbaby that's on the way. It's always so exciting when new babies come into the family!
