I received a box of gifts today from my beautiful niece. This was the first thing I pulled out:

The box also contained receiving blankets, a sleep sack, more bibs, jammies and a copy of "The Poky Little Puppy." So sweet.

I am touched by the attention my family is giving me. We may be separated by many -- too many -- miles, but I know they hold me close to their hearts. And I hold them close to my heart. I hope they know that.

*Apropos - fitting


  1. Ha! Very apropos! Sweet gift. I'll have to look for one that says "Star of GRANDMA'S blog". But I'll have to get two ... and they'll really have to say "Co-star" since there will be two soon.

  2. I saw this at the store and thought 'i need this' it was perfect and they only had one left. And 'the pokey little puppy' I read it to the girl I babysit right before bed and she falls asleep right before the ending every time. I love that book. I'll have to get another one of my all time favorite books for my little cousin. It got me through some hard times, it's called 'the kissing hand'

  3. I know he would love to have his cousin read to him.
