Jayna's Angel Bag

Today I received a very special gift. It truly lifted my spirits and made me smile from ear to ear. My fabulously creative cyber friend Sherrie sent me one of her sweet Jayna's Angel Bags!


These whimsical, adorable tote bags are Sherrie's loving tribute to her dear friends sweet baby girl Jayna, who sadly passed away 1 year ago today, tragically at only 9 months old.
Along with my enchanting tote bag, Giggles also enclosed this heavenly hand painted note card!

Leave it to Giggles to place her art work in such a fanciful hand decorated Envelope!



When I started blogging two years ago, If anyone would have told me, that I, suspicious,mistrusting (paranoid!?) Lulu, would befriend a total stranger from Canada, I would have said you're &@#! crazy!! Now, I can't imagine my life without my cyber soul sister!
Today, my son was diagnosed with Psoriasis. According to the pamphlet, 4.5 million adults in the U.S. have it. Even though I Of course know this isn't a serious or right now too difficult problem, I was feeling very upset. I guess this week, it's just been one thing after another. You know how that happens? Three kids times AT LEAST 3 problems each, Husband times AT LEAST Double that, and my own stupid problems. So this Skin disease thing, and reading TOO much information in this freaking pamphlet had me really feeling down.
Then... I read Sherries blog, Realized that today Is the One year anniversary of her sweet little friends passing. Read about the everyday battle little Jayna's parents are going through with their disabled son. Perspective... It is amazing how it affects us. I am now weeping tears of relief..... I am so grateful for this Psoriasis.
My cyber soul sister has a way of always doing this. Sometimes it's with her direct words of wisdom for what's ailing me... Other times, Just like an angel... she is a messenger, through provoking words and whimsical brush strokes, who truly lifts my spirits and enlightens my heart. ♥
thanks Sher xox
