Thankful for Precious Friendships at Christmas

How have I been so blessed to have 
develop wonderful friendships in blog land?

If I don't see someone post I worry about them.
We seem to share so much, happiness, troubles,
passing of loved ones.

It has been a rough year for Mr. and I.
Yesterday a beautiful package came...
from my friend Paulette
with a sweet note of friendship.
Her blog is 

She sure made my day cheerful!
It came just when I needed some cheering up.
Bless you Paulette and thank you for such
a cherished friendship
A beautiful hostess apron!
It is hanging on the Hoosier cabinet next to 
my and my Mom's aprons.
I am truly touched of her generosity and that
fact she thought about me!

I wish I could send all my blog friends a little something
to let them know how much I appreciate them.

The apron made me think of another friend
Duska who has a TV show on the local
PBS station.
The last show I saw, she had a small segment
about aprons.

she explains about
Hostess Aprons

Again, so blessed to have Paulette
as a true friend.
