Blessing from a Blog Friend

If you didn't read my post from Friday please do. I shared a special story about a very special blog friend named Tammy. I know everyone probably already knows Tammy but if you don't go check out her blog I promise you will love her and her family. 


I have become a little lazy since I don't have a job. Well, I'm not sure if lazy is the right word but I do sleep a little later. Friday shortly after eight am Abby woke me barking. Something had startled her and woke her. I thought I heard a noise out front so I got up and looked out my window and in my driveway was the Fed Ex truck. I first thought he must have the wrong house so I waited for him to leave. I peeked out the door still in my jammies. :) There on my porch was a package. Well, I knew then he had the wrong house. I had not ordered anything. So I brought the package inside and I couldn't believe my eyes. It was a package for me. I was in shock. I stood there thinking am I still asleep. I took the package in the kitchen and started to open it. My eyes started to burn as I held back the tears. This was inside my package.

I had mentioned to Tammy how much I loved her table bench and asked did Jason make and sell them. She wrote me back and said he did make them and could make me one. Well, I was going to order one and Ray was laid off the first time. So I told her I would have to wait. I really wanted one and was about to order it and Ray was laid off again. So I asked Tammy if I could and send her a little something every week and then purchase one. Tammy said she would get back with me after she spoke to Jason. I was so surprised when I opened this box and this was in there with another little package and a note. She wrote along with these goodies comes love and blessings from our home to yours! How could someone who didn't know me be so kind?

Here is the stitchery Tammy made me.

I absolutely love it. The table matches perfect with my place mats and curtains. I love the stitchery one because of what it says and two because my friend made it. I had no idea when I wrote my on my blog Thursday night to be posted on Friday that I would wake-up to this. Thank-you Tammy for my wonderful gifts but most of all for your friendship. 

I still have some tweaking to do but a lot of my things are already packed so I had to use what I had. Janae's candle mat looks great on here. I have to mention that Tammy's husband did a wonderful job on this. It's gorgeous and I already sent word when I do get back on my feet financially he better look out.

There are so many people in the world that are kind and thoughtful. Your friend Tammi sounds like one of them.

Donna, Tammy is the sweetest,kindest,& most thoughtful person that I know, and her heart has always been, without fail, in the right place. Tammy and her daughter Joy were Godsend's to my son Daniel & me, when Daniel was stationed over in Iraq for 6 months. Both Tammy & Joy would write to Daniel, and Joy had her friends write to him also. Daniel said that whenever he heard his name called for *mail call, and he received a package from Tammy, which had some goodies & a letter from Tammy & lots of cards & letters from Joy & her family and sunday school friends, that it always put a really BIG SMILE on his face,and touched his heart in so many ways. He says he will never forget how very thoughtful and kind they were to him when he was in Iraq. Tammy and Joy kept my spirits up too in emails and on the Country Sampler forums. I don't know what I would have done without them! I've thanked our Dear Lord many times for letting our lives be touched by their kindness & friendship. Tammy's whole family, including her Mom, Dad, brother Richie & his loving family are all so wonderful! I love them all so very much and my family & I have been so richly blessed to have had them touch our lives as they have. They are so very special to all of us!

You & your family have a great weekend!
