Good Afternoon! Today I opened the last of my 7 presents from the Joy Box that the wonderful ladies at my church gave me last Sunday. The first day I opened a candle (pictured) that looks like a jar of parmesan cheese, even has the holes in the top just like a regular cheese dispenser. The second day I opened a box, not just any box, but a "willow tree" wooden box with an engraving inside which says "An embrace of comfort and love". The lady on the front is cuddling a cat, of which I have two that I love. The third day I received a metal "springy lady". It is so cute and she hangs from a spring so that she moves all around when you hang her up. The fourth day I received an awesome organizer with a magnetic opening which is just what I needed. The Fifth day I received a pretty mug with the words "faith" inscribed on the front. The sixth day I received a great book on trusting God in difficult times. Today, was such a huge shock....I opened a very large box to find a beautiful, and very soft hand-made blanket. I was so touched. It will provide a lot of comfort on those painful days. What a blessing this week has been, opening up a gift everyday and a card everyday that said just the right thing for that particular day. Thank you ladies of the "Joy Box" ministry!! You are such a blessing!!! Have a great Sunday!
