" A garden of friends is always in bloom."
For the last few months, we've had little time to stop and smell the roses...
And while I try hard to always say the things that are in my heart, there comes a time when there is an outpouring of love and thoughtfulness that just takes your breath away.
For everyone who said a prayer, sent a card, brought food, sent flowers or simply came and sat a while, a heartfelt thank you. For every call to check on us, for every offer of help we are truly, deeply grateful. For considerations of work missed and absence from school and church engagements, for folks who picked up our portion of the task and took care of it, we are thankful. For our church family and faithful friends, who encircled us with loving prayers and who offered us your shoulders when our own were not strong enough, we feel truly, truly blessed.
