I drove past my front door, and saw a package!
A quick mental inventory and I knew I hadn't ordered anything?
I picked it up and put it inside to open later when I got home.
Restraint is not my strong-point, but I was late.
I was on my way to Grandhunk #3 graduation, so it had to wait.
Graduation was wonderful & family photo time after.
Amazingly I only teared up, no blubbering this time.
The graduates boarded a bus to their party ...
and I came home to open the mystery package.
What a treat! Beautifully wrapped & packaged ...
a real Iona handmade journal!
I sometimes send students cool or inspiring videos.
A wonderful video showing the story and process of the
exquisite Iona journals was one, and can be seen here.
But honestly, I wasn't hinting. Honest!
I really considered it too good for me,
so imagine my thrill of being gifted!
I asked if I could mention this in my blog,
and she said of course, but just say it's from a student.
I have honored her wishes, but ...
there's going to be a lot of people who recognize
this fine artist with the big, kind heart and talent!
Thank you dear one!
A smile for Sunday ...
