For the Queen of Happy Mail

I have a blog friend who is the Queen of Happy Mail.
You may be one of the fortunate ones who knows her too.

While I'm oh so grateful for the happy mail that she sends to me and to my girl C, the thing that touches my heart so deeply is the happy mail she sends to my mom.


My regular readers know that my mom is battling cancer, and I started Team Teal as a way to make sure she was getting little bits of happy mail here and there to lift her spirit on challenging days. All of Team Teal has been so lovely to her, but this particular friend shines bright in her consistency and never ending kindness.

{here's what the canvas looked like before all the layers went on}

Thank you, Ruth, from the bottom of my heart, for all the lovely happy mail you send around the planet - not just to the members of my family, but to all of our blog friends near and far who have been fortunate enough to be the recipient of one of your sweet parcels.

Some angels have wings, Ruth.
You have envelopes and stamps.

How very very lovely! Ruth is an absolute dear. I'm lucky enough to have met her in real life, and I can't wait for her to come back and visit soon. Maybe someday we'll see you too :)
