3 Surprises!

I had such a wonderful Day today!
It did not start out that way!
I had no energy but I am used to that,
and I am not complaining,
but some days are just draining!
When I grabbed the mail,
look at the wonderful items that came to me,
I had entered a giveaway over at
Monica's from The White Bench 
These items are handmade,
3 beautiful cards,
and the lovely heart,
and the packaging. 
true bliss!
Thank you so much Monica,
they are truly treasures!
Please check out her blog, if you love romantic and beautiful, you would love to stop by and have a visit. I have been following her now for about a year, and every time I go, for a few moments I feel like a princess.She also has the most amazingly photogenic dog Kim, check her out on Monica's 
sidebar. I love Kim with the big Hat.
Monica is very talented and creative, often she shows what items looked like before she got her hands on them and then the after results. She is a true artist.!
And then my oldest sister phoned,
and she has bought a ticket for her and I
to go visit her daughter, son and future daughter in law.
I was so excited, It is not until the middle of March,
but it was a very special surprise!
I really have the best sisters in the whole world.
They know I can't really get out by myself!
So often they are very generous and kind!
And the third surprise,
my husband came home with
an Ice Cappucino from Tim Horton's!
My fave!
It all turned out to be one of my Very Best Days!
I hope you had a great day too!

  5. Once, I was dreading something.
    And I said, maybe it'll turn out ok.

    Every day is a gift!
