Gifts from Robin

 I've thought so many times of hitting the post button in the last few days but then didn't.I just have a cloud hanging over me this holiday and have been trying to get out of the funk and get some Holiday spirit.Alot of personal things and struggles going on but usually I'm a person who bounces back fast but for some reason this seems to be hanging with me.Hate to be in a Bah Humbug mood so trying to find the Joy.So many of you sweet girls have inspired me and shown the true meaning of the holidays and have really enjoyed seeing everyones postings.Today will be spent cleaning,baking and watching some christmas movies.Just trying to get my mind off of things especially things I can not change....Now a long over due Thank You to my sweet friend Robin The Primitive Hutch We recently did a swap you can click her blog to see what I sent her..Robin sent me some wonderful gifts and spoiled me....Black Prairie doll..Bird on old oiler..Stitched picture...
 Sweet Ginger Love...
 Had to giggle in the snowman tin I thought Robin had sent something Yummy like cookies..Nope inside was a bag of my favorite Dove caramels..She knows how to make me smile...
Such wonderful gifts from a dear friend! Well hoping all are enjoying your holiday activities and remembering the true meaning of the season.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Hope you are feeling better soon.

I sure hope it worked.

So many bloggers are feeling this way now... I am so sorry you are struggling! I will be praying for you, my dear! I love your treasures! How fun! Chocolate can soothe the soul too... Prayer and chocolate...

Hugs and love, dear Amy!

Oh....I love that woman's style. Lucky you to have swapped with her!! Lovin' every stinkin' thing.

I've been in that "funk" for two seasons now. Never, ever, thought it would happen to me....the one who starts wearing Christmas socks and listening to Christmas music on November 1st...pronto. Don't know. This season has been especially tough. Today I moved my mom to an assisted nursing facility (from a nursing home) - it was about a 45 minute drive and she just kept begging me to "take her home." :o( Hugs to you, friend....Robin

(((Amy)))) it saddens me to know that you are in a funk and that the joy is hiding on you! I hope you search it out and find it really soon. I am praying for you dear friend!
The swap items are so precious! Know you are in my thoughts and prayers!
Be blessed,

Wonderful gifts from Robin, Amy. Focus on what you have~ your dad, your nieces and your grandma~ Like I tell Julie, God always provides when we need it most. Hope you find Joy in them and what the true reason of Christmas is.
