Friends are the flowers in life's garden. . .

May I always recall and be thankful
For help along the way,
For the unseen helpers who shaped me
Into the person I am today.

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2

Dear friends, I am convinced that we do not always realize the impact we have on other people's lives. Sometimes our smile or hug will be the only one received by those around us. Thank you for your friendship and for the impact your sweet lives have had on my life.

Hi Vicki!
What a beautiful sentiment!
The kindness and thoughtfulness I have found both in my little world here where I live and work and also here with blog friends is so amazing and so dear to me!

Vicki, you are one of the sweetest out here!
Thank you for adding kindness and tenderness to the world.
Your beautiful tea table is bringing back memories. I forgot all about the little "packages" that a darling doily can make. This is the second time I've seen doilies used for creating a little holder for things. What pretty favors they make!
I hope you're having a wonderful start to a lovely week in May!
