Unexpected Gifts Fill The Heart

I have a friend who is a distant cousin who I have only met once in my life when I was 17. Many years passed and through the years we have corresponded every once in awhile with occasional Christmas cards. I have many fond memories of her and two other cousins I met on that trip long ago and have kept the memories tucked away inside of the special time spent and a connection cemented in my mind.

I had not heard from her in several years and looked every day in the December mail to see if I would hear from her. On her end she was fine and just busy as we all get. One day in December I received an email from her with a precious picture she had drawn of my goat, Mr. Brown. She is an accomplished illustrator and Mr. Brown was such a pleasant surprise! Last week I received a memorial drawing of Fisher who passed away right before Christmas leaving us all a little sad right before the holidays. Happy tears happened upon seeing our sweet Fisher.

Reconnecting has been such a blessing and has filled my heart and made it full. The paintings/drawings of Mr. Brown and Fisher have been the greatest gifts of love from a sweet friend who has only met me once, but “knows” me and that our animals are gifts that we are blessed to take care of on this earth and we love them with all our hearts.

Thank you special cousin and friend. You really DO know me! My life is forever enriched by our life connection.

Are these not the most precious drawings ever? They are my “pride and joys.”
