Joyful Mail

Do you ever have one of those days where you just need a little something to lift your spirits and brighten your outlook? I was having one of those days last week when I found this lovely PIF from Mel in my mailbox.


I like the way this gorgeous frame is so elegantly embellished with sheer ribbon and flowers, and the scripture art that Mel found to include is perfect. I now have this displayed on my desk top where I can see it each day. It was accompanied by the happy bird on this sweet note from Mel.


And then I checked my inbox this morning to discover that I am the next recipient of last August's Pass the Book from Sian. So, I'll be watching my mailbox for another package from Mel containing the Where Women Create Book of Inspiration. Oh, lucky me!

I didn't realize when I started blogging and making friendships in blogland that it would add so much enjoyment to checking for the mail each day. I hope you find something in your mailbox or inbox today that will add a smile to your day!
