Oh Miss. Debbie, Do You Need Any More Caterpillars?

 My neighbor next door Jennifer is growing parsley.
Her precious young children (I showed you their picture the other day)
 have found some caterpillars in her parsley...
and when they do, they bring them over here to me.
7 so far, and they seem to really enjoy bringing them over here to place in the cage.
They are the cutest kids, talkative, and they sure do ask a lot of questions.

Several days ago, they brought me a rotisserie chicken, 
(did I tell you that)
a huge caesar salad, and a large pasta dish that fed both of us for 2 nights.
How kind and thoughtful they are, the kind of neighbors people dream of having.

The younger one Celia and her cousin made me this adorable card...

The card on the right, was handmade by my friend Connie.
She is an artist with paper and makes the most amazing cards.
The yellow butterfly card and pretty shell came from a friend from high school, Louann.

These pretty flowers came from my sister Kathy, 
she knows how much I love the color purple.

Somehow, we went from caterpillars to kind people who have shown me so much love.
People I am so lucky to have in my life.

Debbie - what a heart-warming story - wouldn't it be wonderful if more of this neighborly love was all around us?

I do love the cards and flowers that your loving friends and sister gave to you. I especially like that you have good neighbors. I love that they brought you meals and wrote such cute things on their cards.
You are blessed!
