I am very blessed! I have made some dear friends here in Virginia. Not only are they fun to be with, but they are caring and giving people with big hearts and kind souls. Last evening, my friend Ibby, who has already given me some lovely gifts, surprised me once again with this adorable print of a little dachshund. She said it reminded her of Jake. It is a work of art by Gretchen St. Lawrence of Floyd, Virginia.
I am delighted to have this print which now graces my fireplace mantel. But, I treasure the gift of Ibby's friendship most of all. Thank you, my friend. You have put a burst of sunshine into my life.
