An Amazing Christmas Story

Happy Holidays My Friends~ ~

I have an amazing story to share with you. The mirror above has one of my favorite sayings on it. Glitter letters were pasted across the top to remind me every day when I look in the mirror to "Delight In The Day". I also believe in Dreaming Big. If you are a regular friend visiting here you know how much I love glitter. So much for the stars. . .
. . .and the trees on with the story.


Do you see the santa picture on the wall behind the tree? It was embroidered by a dear friend years ago as a gift for me. Iwona was a lovely girl who came here from Poland with a friend of mine. She visited here many months and we spent time together and we enjoyed each others company so much. We talked and talked and laughed and cooked together. Then she went back home and the relationship ended between Iwona and my friend and we lost contact. That was 14 years ago.

While she was visiting here she asked my Mother to teach her how to do embroidery and she did this picture for me. She was an excellent student and learned very well. Her stitching is beautiful. Every year when I put this picture up on the wall I think of Iwona. I had tried to contact her a few times over the years with no luck. I come to find out that she has been trying to contact me also.



On Christmas morning I checked my emails and found a note from her asking politely if I was the person she was searching for. For many years she sent emails out looking for me and if I was not that person she was sorry for bothering me. She would continue to try to find me. What Joy when I saw it was from her and that she was well and happy and married with a family!



I decorated this basket for the holidays and it is sitting in a corner of the dining room.
It seems appropriate to close this post with Believe~ ~and all good things will come to you.
I am Joyously Happy and hope that each of you has a miracle come to you this season.
Love & Blessings~ ~Ahrisha~ ~

Hi Ahrisha,
Thanks for the visit to my blog. Sorry to sy, NO CAMERA....:( Pentax sent me a new one, which I received Dec. 16th, but it wouldn't work. :( I called them right away, they emiled me a lable to send it back to them, which we did the next day. I was told that another new one would be sent to me right away. Well....here it is Dec. 29th and still no camera. :(

So no Christmas pictures this year, of course nothing much to put on my blog either.

Your story was very touching. I'm happy for both of you, for finding one another again.

Hugs
