Gift From Dianne

Today is my deceased daughter's 39th birthday, and I was overwhelmed when a beautiful floral bouquet came to my door this morning. My husband's Bday is Nov. 14, Tiffany's is today, and mine is the 22nd.

I cannot tell you how much this precious friend's thoughtfulness means to me. Her birthday is tomorrow, and I think many of you know her for her giving nature and unending talents. She's known as Dianne Collins from PA. We both had the maiden name of Knowles and have so many similarities that we have always thought we are related somewhere along the line. I wish I were half the person she is. She does so much for others and is so full of energy, she puts me to shame.

Dianne, how can I thank you for the bright spot in my day? Tiffany is smiling down upon us today. Thank you, my dearest one, Dianne.

Oh, and you can't really tell in the picture, but my inspirational calender is set to November 18, and the basket beside my sewing machine has some "smalls" I stitched, then finished. There is a little tin heart with fancy letters tied to a bouquet of fake flowers, just to be pretty, and a scissor holder and pincushion with spools of thread XS'ed on each tuft.

I can't think of a better place to put the lovely gift from Dianne than in my sewing room. Thank you for saving my day, Dianne!

Oh they are so pretty! It was so hard to chose the bouquet. I know you like 'blue' at least. After going through lots of pages of bouquets, I kept coming back to this one.
Thanks for your sweet comments. It's something I really wanted to do for you coz.

Hi Nancy,
I have just read your post and I want to send you all my sympathy. Losing a child is probably the worst thing that can happen, there is no word that can help.
I am happy to see that you have Diann's friendship to comfort you and brighten this day, anyhow.
