Angels and friends Part 2 - I'll try for the third or fourth time to try to complete this post. There are frequent interruptions and people looking for attention, one of them being my true love. He says he's trying to remind me to drop my shoulders. Maybe I'd best do that so he doesn't come running back.

The collage, which was very quickly tossed together shows only some of the items I received for my birthday. Nearly two weeks later and I'm still receiving gifts.

Last Sunday I received two wonderful gifts of money, one from Sig and one from my folks. I'm planning to buy a book about making cards. I'll try to remember to show you when I get it. I forgot to bring the name of it. I received a very beautiful card from my brother on the same day.

But angels keep stopping by and tapping me on the shoulder reminding me how many friends I have. Suze is one of those angels. She's brought me so many good wishes. Part of knowing these angels is that they feel comfortable about sharing their inmost thoughts with me. That makes me feel so blessed. I love being trusted. But I digress. More about those angels another time.

The collage:
The fabric on top left corner is part of a wonderful wall hanging I received from Laurentia. Beautiful Laurentia is from South Africa originally. She is so torn, so homesick. She wants to return to her home, even while she shares the horrific stories of what life was like, of what she hears life is still like, even after this many years. Laurentia, I think we will never understand, but thank you for sharing these bits and pieces. Thank you for shaing your heart with us. Thank you for the very beautiful painted wall hanging. I will cherish your art forever.

Nance, thanks for all the little treasures. This picture does not show all the collage bits and pieces she sent. I am saving the two most precious for another time. I will hope to use them soon. Thank you for recognizing how important words are to me.

The bookmark was not necessarily for my birthday but I see it as a very special gift also. It is from MaryAnn whose heart is so full of love. And it was chosen by Suze.

The book, Desiderata, is from my other writng friends - Hazel, Carol, and Jennie. They know me well. They are always so tender when I share some of my very personal writing.

Friends abound. Angels abound.
My love to all the angels in my life.

Hey sweetheart! Greg sounds like an Angel, too! Don't forget to drop those shoulders - great advice!

This is such a wonderful post, Wendy. I'm so glad that you have such a caring group of people in your life. Thank you so much for making me feel so loved, and for being such a wonderful friend to me.

Love you so...
Tickles & Hugs,
Suze xXx
