Oh. My. Gosh.
I got the sweetest card from my friend Jerry wishing me a lovely holiday and hoping that Santa brought me everything that my heart could desire. I smiled and thought to myself that Santa might have his work cut out for him this year. Next I opened a card from Lauren. She had prepared me for it by calling and saying that she had made me something that made her giggle with delight and she couldn’t wait for me to get it. So, I should have been ready….but I wasn’t. I actually hopped up and down with glee when I saw the front of the card.
This little owl is so adorable that I can’t decide what part of him I love the best. If it comes right down to it I’d probably go with the boots, but the tail, the hat, his FINGERS and his smile are all up there in the top ten.
After I laughed and laughed, I called her and left her a voicemail telling her how much I loved her little wintery gift of owlish love.
I hung up the phone and reread Jerry’s card. I’ll have to ask him if he put in an express order or something cuz it seems like Santa might have come a couple of days early for me this year.
