She Called to Me........

....................$2.00!..................................Diane! There she sat on a table with other treasures at a garage sale recently. Not shabby enough I told myself, the wrong colors, the wrong style. And still. I picked her up again. Set her down. Walked away. Came back and picked her up again. I loved the way she held the tiny bird in the softness of her hands, and she had angel wings. All of a sudden I knew she was mine. I'll put her in my cottage and whenever I look at her I can remember that the creatures, deer, birds, dogs and cats, horses, eagles, mountain lions, elephants - all of God's creatures are held dear and special to Him, too, and He loves them and me and you more than we can ever imagine. Diane

Oh My Goodness Diane.... That little precious was yours from the minute you saw her, wasn't it???? I'm so glad you have her... She will always be very special to you--and I'm glad you will keep her in your cottage.

Hugs,
Betsy

Diane, you must be such a special person, to think things through in such a feminine manner. I just grab stuff and run. You have shared your thoughts in such a lovely way, and your new treasure is very pretty.

She is a wonderful treasure to own. Very blissful and will certainly bring many smiles. I would not have left her behind either.
