"...and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue." Proverbs 31:26
This was my surprise this morning before Eric left for work. However, it was not from Eric. It was from my sweet neighbor, Petunia's Gardener and her DH. She brought it over yesterday before I got home and Eric was ever so kind as to hide it until today. (Today's my birthday.) What fun to open this goody bag!
- recipe book for making smoothies of every concoction
- lovely printed napkins
- two envelopes of traditional European bath therapy
- candle with the most amazing scent
- gentle green candle plate
- card with a sunflower recalling memories of our KS roots
Petunia's Gardener and her DH have been incredibly hospitable since the day we moved in. God certainly knew what He was doing when He allowed us to find this house. The two of them both graduated from Wichita State University - we had just moved from our farm 30 miles south of Wichita, KS! Coincidence? Hardly not (no such thing). Unmistakably the hand of God. It has been such a comfort to talk of familiar things with our new neighbors. They even put up with me during my 6-month funk! She introduced me to the fabulous world of blogging, they share veggies from their garden, and she likes to check out thrift stores!!
Thank you, Petunia's Gardener and DH, for such a lovely surprise this morning!
