Although Thanksgiving was yesterday, I want to let someone special know that I am thankful for her friendship and thoughtfulness; she is Monica from Sweden. This precious gift arrived just in time for Christmas; it was promised as a PIF (pay it forward) gift a few months ago. The card looks like it's 3-D because of the background and the texture of the paper, but it isn't. I can imagine myself walking through the snow covered ground at Christmas time, can't you? You can check out more of Monica's artistic talent on her blog. I feel blessed knowing some wonderful new friends who live in Sweden; hopefully we can meet one day while Efraim and I are in Europe this summer. Thank you, Monica, for the bag that will come handy for keeping things organized and for the first Christmas card received this season! As soon as Efraim and I get settled into our new home, I'll get to work on a PIF gift for someone special.
