30 Days of Joy



I meant to do this earlier, but I've been behind. I mentioned previously that Stacy had sent me a "30 Days of Joy" kit. She filled 30 envelopes with Bible verses and inspirational quotes, candy, stickers, fun toys, a bracelet, a key chain, Sudoku puzzles and puzzle pieces. Each day I opened a new envelope to reveal the special trinkets inside. I stuck all the stickers in my devotional journal so that I could enjoy them for a long time to come. The last day Scamp and I were able to fit all the puzzle pieces together to show Winnie the Pooh and his friends.

It was such a thoughful gift. The next several days after I had opened all the envelopes I would go to open a new one and realize, "Oh, I've already opened them all," and would feel a little disappointed:( Thank you so much Stacy for being such an encouraging friend. I loved every thought, every trinket, and every mouth watering piece of chocolate. I'm still working through all the Sudoku games!

Very glad you liked it! I stole the idea from a friend who did them as get-well presents and added my own spin. It's fun to get gift "just because" sometimes too! :)

What a wonderfully sweet and thoughtful thing to do. You and Stacy are both blessings to all of us who "know" you in the blogging world. :)

I'm loving this idea! I have a friend who needs one of these! Thanks for sharing the idea Stacy and thanks Scamp's place for letting us know it was helpful to you! I'm going to start making one up this week!

How thoughtful! I'll have to tuck that idea back in my mind somewhere.

what an incredible gift!!!! LOVE that idea - I might steal it someday! :)

(Maybe I will make Jackson a set ahead of time, so that when the new baby comes, he has a new surprise everyday to make his life special! I am sure the baby crying will grow old pretty quick for a five year old!) hmmmm... i think I will write it in my calendar to remember to get it ready WAY ahead of time and then i will post about it and link back to you... WOW - if I remember to do all that five months from now - THAT will be a feat! Feel free to drop by my place and remind me! ;)
