but he speaks through angels like you and me. I started this week below empty, and yet through the love of friends and family I am topping out at full!!
Work has always been real good to me. I love the company I work for and I love the people I work with. They came through again for me this week. We received a lovely package from them just now, one for me and one for Olivia (an early birthday present - Hannah Montana board game which was a HIT!). One of our customers, Marilyn K., quilts and she was the one who orchestrated this beautiful masterpiece! What I love is that even though everyone is either a Crescent employee, customer or vendor, their love and support is universal and they are all considered friends. I'm all out of tissue this week, but it's due to the good kind of tears. Happy tears, joyful tears, thankful tears.
My camera doesn't do any justice, so you'll have to believe me when I say this is beautiful! My kids seem to think so as well!
Liz, Lara, Rosemary, Ali, Mary, Warren, Robert, Gay, Kelly, Monica, Emily, Rhonda, Claudia, Michelle, Jim, Jose, Olivia, Kim, Mike M., Mike F., Becky, Phyllis, Lester, Barbara, Sam Juana, Candice, Neftali, Antoinnette, Debbie, Kathy, Dorothy, Brenda, Herman, Robin, Skip, Donald, Tom and especially Marilyn (the talented quilt maker!) - Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Words can't begin to describe how touched I am at your genersosity and caring, and I must say I am impressed at some of ya'lls art work! :) The words on the quilt will provide me the strength to get through this last hurdle.
May God bless each of you as much as he has blessed me.
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
