Claire's Wedding Gift

You didn't know Claire was getting married???

Well...she's not. At least not any time in the near future!

But our neighbor lady, who I've written about often, has already given Tyler and Lara a wedding gift so wants to make sure that Claire gets a gift from her too (Caleb got his at Christmas this year!), so has been working on it for the past month.

This was waiting for Claire when we got back from Croatia late last night.

Another one of her beautiful needlepoint "Jesus Pictures", as we call them!

She came over to chat this afternoon (as she does most every day). Of course she wanted to know what we thought of the picture, and wanted to see Claire's reaction to it.

We were both happy to praise her skills and let her know that these pictures she's made for us (I think this is the 6th one altogether) will remind us of her for years to come.

She lives on a limited income, but insists on even framing each picture so that it's a completed gift. What a precious gift.

She left with a happy smile, and a little spring in her step, satisfied that she'd made our day.

I don't think I've mentioned it in a while, but her last name is "Angel".

Sometimes, you just have to wonder.

  1. That's so sweet of her. At least you knew who it was for this time and didn't have to get Dave to interpret who was the gift's recipient!

    I'm looking forward to meeting this man of mystery! Any hints yet on who he is?
