Amy Love

A day or so after we returned from Florida I received an email from
asking for my mailing address as she had something to send me.

A few days later a package from Oregon arrived with a beautiful and compassionate note...as Amy knows I am grieving the loss of my Mom.

 Amy's words of support and encouragement and her joyful assurance of our faith touched my heart and did, indeed remind me that He is my strength.

And just look at what she sent!
A wonderful number 52 brass laundry tag,
 an antique French music card,
really fabulous old French documents,
 four tiny clay feves (love these!) 
and an old French needle packet.

If you don't know about Amy...
she travels to France to hunt the brocantes for special treasures that she brings back to sell in her Charlotte's Brocante.

And now you know the kind of person Miss Amy is.
 I  really am overwhelmed with her kindness and generosity.

And the thoughtfulness and loving support that Amy offered is indicative of why I love our blogging community.

Thank you Amy from the bottom of my heart.

And thanks to all of YOU
 for all the thoughtful and kind words...
...for all the things that you do to make our blogging world
 the sweet place that it is.

Linking up to White Wednesday over at Faded Charm....

Such a thoughtful and lovely gift. I only live about 20 minutes from where Amy holds her sale, yet I've never been to one. I didin't know about the one she just had a couple weeks ago and could kick myself. I'll be keeping a lookout for the next one for sure:)

Take care,

Laura, what a beautiful and touching gift from Amy. I will tell you when I lost my Mom it was little things like a card that meant so much. It said to me that someone cares. So Amy if you're reading this, you did a wonderful thing.

Such a dear heart! Blessings and Good wishes to you and your family, Laura. By the way, I too embrace the number 52...could we have some little thing in common? A big B.D. in 2012?

How sweet!

Suz said...

What beautiful gifts. I am glad she was so thoughtful to you and am reminded again about your grief...it is difficult and long. Mothers are so important to us, at any and every age.

I have never heard of those feves but assume they are those darling little figures. The scrip on those papers...oh my! And for her to find and send you a "52"...how very special!

I am very sorry to read about your sweet Mom, It is a special bond we share with them... I just read your "Mother's day 2009" and the heartfelt words you shared about her. I know you miss her but remember the way she made you feel. That is what is engraved in our hearts. It will never fade. I promise you!
Blessings to you and your family,

Laura, I believe that what you put out into the world comes back to you, so of course you have wonderful people sending you special treasures because you are such a special, wonderful person yourself!
