A Box of Sunshine from Kathy

Yesterday was my first day back at school and after a long day I came home to the most pleasant surprise!  There was a box by my front door.


OH MY GOODNESS!!! Talk about a box of sunshine!!!! I had the biggest smile on my face as I checked out all the fun surprises inside.  What a sweet and clever idea!!!  I also love how Kathy recycled the Paper Pumpkin box by turning it inside out. She decorated it too. Look at all the yellow goodies that was inside!!

Enclosed was this beautiful card!!!!

Kathy wrote that this was to cheer me up after dropping my daughter off at college.  I’m sure many of you can relate to that experience.  If so, I hope you had a “Kathy” in your life to drop a box of sunshine on your doorstop! I’m reminded of this quote, “A mother’s job is to teach her children not to need her anymore. The hardest part of that job is accepting success.” #audreylovesparis

Words cannot express how absolutely touched I am to be the recipient of these gifts! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect! Kathy, thanks for making my day!!  

I had just finished opening box # 2 (Do you believe there was more?!!!) when my daughter called to see how my first day back at work went. (I know I am biased but she is just so sweet and thoughtful!!!) So, I shared with her all about my box of sunshine. Here’s what was in box #2.

These goodies are not only fun they are useful too! You can bet I will put a lot of these items to use in my home and classroom (and smile as I use each of them)! There was another card enclosed too!

I am blessed to have the best blog readers ever!!!  I love to create and enjoy sharing my projects with others.  I never dreamed I would have a blog and it has just been so much fun getting to know so many of you through cyberspace. You inspire me and fill my joy tank with your comments and kindness!! Kathy, I plan to “pay it forward” and promise to do an act of kindness in your honor. I hope I can bring as much joy to someone else as you delivered today!

I hope you will leave a comment for Kathy today for her amazing talent, creativity, and thoughtfulness! I love this idea of sending a little sunshine to others!

Have a wonderful day (filled with sunshine I hope)!
