Special Delivery

This was on my front porch the other day.

BDW-1

It was from a very good friend of mine and I had no idea what it could be.

BDW-2

Inside was a note and lots of brown paper lunch bags with numbers written on them.

BDW-3

I send these types of things to my grandkids for Advent and a couple of years ago I sent some to her kids.  We call them Christmas Wishes. And even though I see Christmas stuff in the stores, it’s way too early for Christmas.

BDW-4

These must be…

…Birthday Wishes!

BDW-4.5

For me!!

My birthday is the 27th and here is a box of birthday wishes/treats.  One for each day.  That’s twenty-seven little reminders that someone is thinking of me.

BDW-5

My favorite flavor!

I have no idea how she found the time to do this.  She has five children: six-year-old twin girls, a four-year-old girl, and two-year-old twin boys.  That’s a lot of busy!

BDW-6

I LOVE pigs!!

And yet she took the time and got this wonderful box of goodies to celebrate me.

BDW-7

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
