JOY in a Gift

A package came in the mail a couple days ago.
It was from a dear friend of many years.
My husband stood wondering what our friend would send me.
I wondered too.
Upon opening it I found this tea towel gently tucked inside.
It was made by her mother years ago.
She thought, after reading my posts, that I
should have it.
Don't you just think it is perfect, trimmed
in my favorite color with kittens on it?
But the best part of all is the word JOY
written there.
Thanks dear friend!
It does bring a smile to my face and JOY
in my heart.

Marilyn, I couldn't get blogger to accept my comment when you first posted this. This JOY tea towel brought such a smile to my face. This towel is the same as one my mother had when I was a child. I have dried MANY dishes with a tea towel just like this one! In fact, mom had the entire set. Most wore out, but there are a few that she saved and stitched into pretty patches on a tablecloth. I will look for it and see if JOY is one that survived all those dishes!
