Yesterday I received a parcel in the post all the way from the USA.
My dearest buddy Ellen (ellen35) sent me a gift

When I opened the cover there was a card

Here is the beautiful hand made card by Ellen

Ellen kindly sent this to me because I am going for a little surgery next week Wednesday (24th)
nothing major or serious, I wont be doing my usual activities for at least 3 weeks.

Ellen, thank you so much for your love, kindness and moral support, it is people like you that make this
world a better place.

It was my pleasure to do this. If anyone is interested, it is Tracy Kidder’s book called House… a wonderful read on the building of a house. Written in 1985!

Good luck with the surgery, we’ll be “with you” all the way.

We will all be with you in our thoughts during your surgery and recovery. I hope all goes well!
Enjoy the book. I understand it is a very good read. I have it on my reading list if it ever gets released on Kindle. Ellen is a great buddy to have in your corner!!
