Some people might say it’s just plain luck and some people say it’s more, but my daughter and I have been so fortunate to have had people step into our lives and lend a hand, or an ear, or a meal, at the most pertinent of times.
One of these everyday angels walked into our home the first afternoon we moved in, with a mini loaf of warm banana bread. And, every Christmas since, she has dropped by with a mini loaf of warm banana bread – just enough for my daughter and I to share.
She is our neighbor from a few doors down – she is without a doubt one of the spiffiest retirees on this street!
From her immaculate self-maintained yard to the tips she emails me on ways to pinch a penny or two, she has been such an inspiration to me. Sadly, recently, she informed me that she has been thinking about selling her home and moving. I hate to see her go.
At first, I thought that I should hide in the bushes and charge the people who came to look at her house, thus frightening them out of buying – but that wouldn’t be right – or would it?
Instead, I figured we could do something special for her. Most Christmas, we give her a box of cookies.
But this year, to show her how much her kind gestures over the years have meant to us, I figured I would include a small Hallmark Ornament along with these Candied Ginger Oatmeal Cookies.
At first, since we speak the language of food, I figured I would give her a Mini Mouse Cupcake Hallmark Ornament, but then when I came across this Hallmark Ornament at my local Walmart store – why – it had her name all over it!
