What a delightful surprise I received in the mail today from a wonderful and very generous Farm Girl, Karla!!
You made my day!! I am walking on clouds. hehe!

I love everything you sent me. The apron is my favorite next to the teapot and teacup. I can't wait to use the bee tea strainer and taste the delicious teas. I am going to send out Thank you cards using the personalized cards to all who send me something in the mail this month. I will save the journal to write secrets of the heart of all the things I am grateful for each day. The little bee magnet is going on my fridge to hold all my inspirational quotes. I put the sachet bag in my husband's room to freshen it up a bit. He will love it. He loves that kind of thing too. Giggle!

Thank You! Karla from the bottom of my heart. You are a true blue farm girl to me.

Love ya,
Marsha

Thank you Grace and Judith.

Yesterday, Winnie surprised me with a gift in the mail. I also had the pleasure of meeting her at the farm girl tea party meet-up a few years ago. She is such a gracious farm girl. Thanks so much Winnie!
There is a lovely soap with it's own little bag. A vintage crochet trim hankie. (one of my favorite things) a coaster and tea.(another one of my favorite things) the ribbon will be added to my stash.

Marsha, I am so happy that you enjoyed your little surprise!! It was fun making the soap scrubby for you too. I love those things and use one every time I shower with my favorite soap. When I was little, my Mom made me a crocheted scrubby is the shape of a turtle, and all the little soap scraps ( Mom wasted nothing) were placed in the turtle body. I absolutely loved that thing and I still have it after all these years somewhere in this house!! LOL!! It was perfect for little hands and scrubbing those dirty feet from going barefoot!! LOL!! The coaster has one of MaryJane's milk top graphics. When she had her store in Moscow, Idaho, she sold her milk and the tops were these adorable labels. This is one of several graphics that she used. They make fun coasters for Farmgirl gifts and I love sharing them with others in swaps and gifts.

That is such a fun story Winnie. I wish I could have saved something my Mother made me when I was young. She sewed our clothes when we were in Elementary school and handed them on to other families with lots of girls.

I love the cow coaster. Thanks for sharing your stash with me.

@Bonnie you are so kind to give me your Congrats! Thank you so much! I am working on making something fun with all of my goodies my sweet farm girls are sending me. Maybe an album or something, something. The creative juices are still brewing in my mind.

I just love surprises. In with my order off the MJF website was a gift from Mary Jane. A nice certificate for being picked for the May FGOM and a beautiful towel that I am hanging in my bathroom. Thanks Mary Jane for your extreme kindness!

Thanks Darlene and Winnie. I just wish I could have gotten together with all of you in person to celebrate.

I got back to completing more merit badges in honor of my celebration. As a gift to myself.

Thanks so much! Sherone for those wonderful words of kindness. I value all of my long time farm girl friends and hearing from each one of you that I have known on MJF for years is a special treat that I will hold dear and near to my heart.

As the Month of May is drawing to a close, I wanted to jump up and "crow" from the roof tops. . . .

Congratulations Marsha!!!!!!

Nothing has made me happier than seeing you picked as FGOM. Since we first became farmgirls, you have always led the way. You tried different things and encouraged all of us to do the same. You shared recipes, tips and tricks too. Took part in countless swaps, which have been so much fun. You worked hard on your merit badges and continue to do so. You jumped in to help any farmgirl in need and always have a kind word to lift someone up on a tough day.

I think more than anything else, you truly sum up what it is be be a farmgirl. . . You are generous in spirit and always giving of yourself selflessly. You are there when you are needed and even when your not. A true blue farmgirl who can plow on through even the most challenging of situations and still come out on top with a smile and a kind word. You truly deserved this honor and I hope you have enjoyed your moment in the sun!!

I know you have forever changed my life in such a positive way. It is an honor and a privilege not only to be a part of the farmgirl sisterhood with you, it is also an honor and privilege to call you my friend.

Once more, Congratulations Marsha on being chosen FGOM for May 2018!!!

What a treat to come on today and see so many of my long time farm girl friends "crowing" as Joanna put it about how they feel about me. You all have made my heart swell with joy and eyes fill with tears of gratitude. There is a long time saying:
"Actions speak louder than words"!
The actions of heartfelt love and appreciation from the farm girls that I have had the pleasure to get to know over the years shows that my random acts of kindness where rewarded just as Jesus said they would be. There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.
I never tire of being a listening ear to a friend in need. I never tire of sending a gift in the mail to lift the spirits of a friend I have not heard from in a while. That's always a clue that something is off track in their lives.

But, I have to admit. I love it when I am surprised by a little RAOK in my mailbox. I don't celebrate the holidays and when a farm girl that knows that thinks of me at other times of the year that just warms my heart.

Every action I make is from my heart and out of love for my fellow farm girl. If you ever receive something in the mail from me know that it comes from a very loving and giving heart.

I am truly thankful for being picked FGOM May 2018.

Yes, Denise I have already come up with my little way of giving back to my dear farmgirl friends who took the time to make my month Special.
