When the mailman came today, Jacob happened to be looking out the window, and said, "MOM! We have a package!" MY mom was here too, and she asked me if I wanted her to go get it for me. Of course I said yes, because there was NO way on earth I could wait 5 hours for my husband to get home and get it, and I can't go get it...I'd end up passed out on the hill to the mailbox.
SO. I ask Jacob to go open the door for Grandma because she's going to have a box in her hands. So I look out the window, and here's my poor mother, carrying TWO boxes, and a huge padded envelope. I mean huge. Plus your everyday junk mail, bills, etc.
A dear blogger friend, Patty Ann, had said she sent me something. So I knew one was from her. I open the box, and here is this GORGEOUS, big, soft, fluffy, handmade fleece blanket with all these little angels on it. It is so beautiful. I will have to find my camera and get a picture.
Then, in the huge puffy envelope there was a gorgeous, hand-made prayer shawl. It is made of the softest yarn. My friend Pam (who is also my sister's sister-in-law) who, even though she has her own plate VERY full with health issues, took the time to make this for me. It is amazing!
I am so blessed to have such amazing friends. Today made me feel extra special!
Tomorrow we go to Ann Arbor for plasmapheresis. Hopefully it will be our last trip that way for a while!! I have an appointment with my "new" (local) neurologist April 15, and then it will be however long it takes him to write the orders for pheresis up here. We shall see!
So thank you to all of my friends and family for praying me through some rough times. And extra-special thanks to Pam and Patty for really making my day!
(Oh, and the 2nd box was just medical supplies!)
