Lucky Kids

Katherine surprised me this week by sending the most darling stationery sets for my kids. Not only was Hudson delighted to see his name on the box, but his name on a stamp just about put him over the moon. He is so proud of his special stamp. Just the motivation he needed to write more notes to his grandparents.

Katherine's creativity and imagination are astounding. When I'm creatively stuck, the first person I turn to is Katherine. You can see why, right? It goes without saying that I feel beyond lucky to have her as a friend.

{Side note: last Sunday at church, I taught a lesson on service. I mentioned that I feel happy when people do nice things for my kids. I compared it to how our Heavenly Father must feel when we do kind things for His children. I will always remember the joy I felt watching the delight on Hudson's face when he opened that package}. Thank you, my dear friend.

P.S. I'm totally going to be using this idea in the future. Aren't you?

I love your sweet story and I also think it's such a great idea--I always get stuck when trying to come up for good presents for my friend's kids, especially the boys. Now I have one good idea! Hope all is good with you Christina!
