How touched can I be by such kindness?
Of course, Dave just loves this gift!
From my sweet Jani, Nan & Sarah (aka The Barn Cats)...
Box filled to the rim with thoughtful goodness.
Little girl from Sarah at my office...such joy.
Handmade pun-kin guy from Marie, (aka Old Lady Morgan).
Gorgeous hand crocheted lap blanket in Autumn colors left at my
Office by a teacher I work with.....Deb, it is beautiful!
An orchid from my kind friends at Satellite in Madison.
A pink rose left at the hospital by my college roommate, Darlene.
Just a bouquet of all the most recent thoughtful gifts.
And that doesn't include all the emails and cards or gifts received earlier in this journey.
I cannot say enough times that although illness brings such worry & change....
it also brings forth such rich blessings. What I have learned from my friends, from past & present coworkers, from neighbors near & far, from my Kindergarten friends to my college roommate, from my first co-teacher, to my sisters....both in blood & spirit, is that I am so lucky, so lucky.
Each day I feel better. Each day I feel stronger. You lift me up.
And today I write thank you notes.
All my love, Kari
