A Sister So Sweet and Thoughtful ~

The doorbell rang, I went to answer and this is what was there.....
A Priority Mail box from the North country, Wisconsin that is!
My sister sent a gift of labor and thoughtfulness. We have a way of answering the phone...
and we always laugh! I called her right away and opened it, 2,500 miles away! If you met our family you might think, well, we are just a jolly,
 nutty bunch who loves to laugh,
get together and have alot of fun! We have a brother who is a comic, he should have been another Larry, the cable guy!  I've mentioned her name, Annette. Here is what she sent:

Everything just popped out that beautiful robin's egg blue when I opened the pretty aqua window box!
She sent a few of her gorgeous handmade cards, made just for me in the aqua (Robin's Egg Blue). She made the gorgeous little nest with a boa and glittered some eggs, it is a tree ornament. Everything matched! Return labels made from my blog background! Check out those glittered trees on the cards! Annette always has some of the neatest ideas for gifts. And a Michaels gift card! What a beautiful gift. Thank you, Annette, for the box of gifts. Thank you even more for being my sister! For listening, praying, and just for being there...
God broke the mold when He made a sister like you!

I love you, Annette!
