kindness surrounds me!

all my life i have been surrounded by kind and generous people. i am sure that these people have shaped me as a person and i continue to be inspired by people who shower me and my girls with unexpected gifts. a few weeks ago one of my husbands friends mother made each of my girls a poncho and scarf for the winter months. i haven't got a photo of each of them but here is the knitted beauty that lili has claimed for herself. she looks so nice in it.
the photos don't do the colours justice. it really is brilliant and she just loves its functionality.
a few days ago my gorgeous across the road neighbour called out to me and gave me a bag of 'something' for the girls. when we got inside the bag contained a pair of winter pyjamas for the girls! so very generous, she has two young children of her own and is studying while working 3 jobs to keep her family afloat. in no way could she really afford to do this but she is just so nice. here is a photo of Mia and Claudia with their pj's.
here is clauds in her new pj's. they didn't come off all day!
and Mia in her pair. she chose the cutest designs and the colours really suited the girls. lilis pair were too small but the pair i exchanged them for are the cutest purple owls you have ever seen.
they are so lucky to have such generous people in their lives. i think that because of all of this generosity my girls will grow up to be givers :)

You are blessed...
I know as things are given I often then want to give too though.
A case of one good deed deserves another...
Great ponchos too...
