Thanks to my APJ sisters

I wanted to thank some of my APJ sisters who made our Christmas even more special. This fall the bear who frequents our home decided to tear through things behind our home. I had our fall and Christmas decorations stored in large "durable" plastic totes alongside our back deck. For the life of me I can't figure out why on earth the bear tore threw everything. The things in the totes were smashed, chewed, stomped into the wet snow and mud alongside our hillside. I've never experienced anything like it before with the wildlife. Obviously there was no food in it so I can't explain it's behavior.
One of the APJ sisters, Libby... began to gather some other sisters and they in turn sent me some very precious fall decorations and Christmas decorations. It was such a wonderful gesture and I don't have the words to say how special that was. As I was putting up the tree this year and trying to get other decorations up... I would cry when I realized my gingerbread man collection was gone, nutcrackers gone, kids special ornaments.... on and on. I still get sentimental and sad about the losses but when I look over and see the sweetest gifts ... I realize how wonderful people are and how not ever having met me ... they really gave me the best gift of all- love for another person!
I just wish I could hug each of them and for a moment let them feel what I felt when I received their gifts!!! Merry Christmas!!


  1. Wow! Prim friends are the best! I'm sorry you lost your collections. I am always amazed when I hear stories of kindness and giving between prim friends who have never met.

  2. I'm sorry that you lost your special decorations, Dawn. Hopefully you have some pictures of them. In the meantime, it was wonderful of some of the APJ ladies to do that for you! You are a very special and loving person, your enthusiasm and appreciation would have made it all worthwhile! Ü I have to admit that I have never met in person some of my best friends, and I just love 'em! I'm so pleased that you are among them :)
    Hugs, Nancy

  3. OMG Dawn! I'm so sorry to hear about this! I haven't been on the forum in a couple of day! Maybe that bear liked your stuff and wanted to decorate his home? Geezz....I'm so sorry, but happy that some of the APJ gals have surprised you with goodies! that is wonderful!

  4. Dawn I don't have to see/meet you to know you're a true sweetheart of a person. I read your heart through all your post as you put your full heart in everything you say and do. I'm so happy to hear all the girls have given you precious new memories to cherish in the years to come! Sad for your loss of past treasures, yet excited for you for all the new ones. You're very special to us and just wouldn't be the same without you! We love ya prim sis!

    Hugs, Libby
