Straight from The Heart

I've just celebrated another birthday. I celebrated with my family and it was a very nice birthday. I received several nice birthday gifts. I wanted to share with you the gift from my sweet six year old granddaughter, Vanessa. I could see the excitment in her eyes even before she handed me the pink birthday bag. She was just beaming with delight!



Vanessa's mommy told me that she picked out the gifts herself, I could plainly see she was hoping I would love the gifts that she picked for me.



Inside the gift bag this is what I found:



A tin can bank that mommy had bought at a garage sale. It is dated 1988.



A catalog about horses. From this catalog you could order all kinds of toys such as farm animals and barns etc!



Next I found a string of plastic beads that Vanessa had made herself. A brand new pencil that had never even been sharpened yet. Also a used ink pen that was just missing the lid but was a real cool zebra print.

Also, one of the sweetest things was this.....



Vanessa had picked out several cards and asked her mommy to help her choose which one she should give me. Mommy said one was a get well card, one was a baby card......

How cute is that? In Vanessa's own handwriting she wrote that she hoped I got good cards. I even got some stickers!! Yes, Vanessa, I got good cards, and yours was one of the best!
