The Kindness of Strangers..


Another story of the kindness of strangers in blogland.  Just because, and for no other reason other than to be generous, Amber Whitehouse of Wisconson, sent me jar of her homemade granola.  The packaging, container, the note cards, the suggestion sheet...it was all stunning.

 

We were very thrilled!


we ate...


and ate..


and ate.


Thank you Amber.

Oh what a nice treat and surprise! Your little girl is just darling in the picture of her on the floor too!

I believe you get what you give...you must have given somewhere along the line, and it was your turn to get.

So sweet... The jar and its packing are lovely. It is nice to read about love and kindness...and your little girl is so veyr pretty.

I love country side living, and I am from India. I have been reading your blog for quite a while now, though this is my first comment. I love your blog. It shows me country side living in a world different than mine.

Aren't people amazing! I've received the most special things too from online friends - for no reason. Love this!

I'm sure the granola was scrumptious, but not as scrumptious and lovely as your little girl!! I love how she just "hams it up" for the camera... so full of fun, life and joy!
