With so much ugliness in todays world, coming to blogland is a real escape. In the short time I have been blogging I have met so many kind and talented people. I have to say it feels like family!
I have a story I would like to share with my blogging family. A story of kindness which for me gives hope that these ugly times just might fade away.
I received an email a few weeks ago from a very special lady who I have known for a couple of years. Her strength and courage while dealing with possible blindness is completely amazing. Yet with this adversity she is always thinking of others. Her name is Jody and I am very proud to call her a friend!
Jody shared a blog with me, one I know many of you are familiar with, Circling My Head. Renee has Inflammatory Breast Cancer and shares her physical and emotional roller coaster ride with the world. So many of us proudly display The Renee Award on our blogs.
Renee, as with all of us, has a love for life and seeing this through her eyes can only be described by visiting her blog. One of her loves is art! That is where Jody and I come in.
Jody purchased one of my gourds, a tiny gourd gnome and asked me to mail it to Renee. I was so honored that Jody picked a piece of my art to share with Renee.
Along with my gnome Jody asked that I attach a poem she wrote just for Renee.
Each time you enter your precious home,
May you be blessed by this little gnome.
Good tidings to you he wishes to bring,
Sweet songs of love to you he will sing.
From him to you all things he will share,
Letting you know he really does care.
Now if you aren't smiling with a tear in your eye, this mean ole world has gotten to you!
Jody and Renee your love and strength is an inspiration to us all!
