When I come to this special place with the light, I will first check to see if I have e-mails needing my attention. I am always so happy to see one I recognize as I know a friend has something to share with me. But every now and again, there will be an e-mail address I don't recognize, there is at first hesitation to see what it will be unveiled.
"Dear Elizabeth, My name is Maddie, and I love your blog!"
And so begins a tentative relationship of questions asked and questions answered. "I hope this day finds you well. Maddie"
It is such an unusual experience to have someone know all about you from reading your blog, but you know not anything about them. Several e-mails will go by before I get up my courage to ask, "May I ask this about you?"
I have learned that Maddie owns her own pet grooming business. I imagine sweet puppy noses to kiss all day long. She has given me so much valuable information about the grooming of my Twirly Swirly Girl's Big White Puppy. I am so grateful for this.
Through e-mails exchanged, one by one, I have learned things about Maddie that have endeared her to me. In purchasing one of my stork Buttonkeepers and Nursery Toys set, it was discovered she has a collection of nursery planters doing double duty as supply holders in her craft room.
That was all I needed to hear! I will be sending her order, but I will also be sending her all of the characters contained within this photo. What an absolute pleasure to have a shared passion. I'm so excited, and hope these will bring joy to her day.
