A Big Thank You to Catherine's Secret Pal!!!

This month my Secret Pal outdid herself once again! Included with Hannah's gifts was a beautiful card with roses on it. On it was written a note of encouragement about the wait. With the long wait ahead it was really appreciated!

Next was a fun wooden puppy puzzle. Hannah's first puzzle and oh so cute! A terry cloth pink piggy was extra special as I've been looking for a terry cloth toy. I've heard that children are often given terry clothes to hold so I had been looking for something for months!Thank you secret pal!

Mommy is never forgotten in the gifts either. This month included a fun magnet which reads, 'A Mother's Love Never Stops Growing.' Also, sticky notes in the shape of the letter 'C'.

Now, I've saved my favourite 2 gifts for last! My SP is so creative!!! Using our March DTC logo and flags from Canada and China in the shape of music notes (I told you she was wonderfully creative!), she made a beautiful CD with 21 beautiful songs on it! I took it to work with me today and every time a new
piece started I thought, 'I love this song.' Hmmm...not sure how much work was lost to my dreaming of Hannah. Oh well...that's nothing new! ;o)

Lastly there is an wonderful, cuddly, soft white bear sporting a red bow with white polka dots! Around his neck there is a blessing which reads:

May your life be filled with blessings,
Like the sun that lights the sky.
And may you always have the courage,
To spread your wings and fly!

*sniff! ~ anyone have a tissue?*

And as all of this isn't enough, dear Teddy is sporting a red ribbon bracelet with a ladybug charm just like the bracelet I wear every single day!!!

Secret Pal...THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to find out who you are
so that I can truly express how much your gifts mean each month. You put so
much love and care into each and every one of them!!!

PS - You don't know how hard it was not to remove Teddy's blessing and bracelet
last night and cuddle with him all night long! I used restraint and didn't take him to bed but each day he will sit on my bed, waiting for his rightful owner to wing her way over from China! Until then, I'll dream of my precious baby girl as I hold her Teddy close!
