Mosaic Monday ~ Connecting Rings

A little while back, you may recall that I had a little Hiccup in my life. Well, for the past 3 months I have had to go to the Montana Cancer Center (don't worry, I do not have cancer) to receive Iron Infusions. Last Thursday marked my 14th infusion and my numbers have now climbed to 10.9 from 6.4. Yeah! But 12 is the norm, so I will have to continue on. But I am okay with that, since I have been feeling so much better and I still have my daughter by my side. She has been with me throughout this whole process and it has meant a lot to me. So, I wanted to get us both something that would "celebrate" the time we spent together and to show her how much I loved her and appreciated the support she gave me. But what?

In comes, Mary from the Little Red House and a wonderful give-away is posted. A $75 gift certificate to the CSN stores. I signed up and low and behold, I won! I was so thrilled and instantly shopped their jewelry section. I found two silver and garnet rings. I chose a garnet in a pear shape, thus reminding me of the drops of iron my body is receiving. Perfect. I wrapped them up in special little bags and took them with me for one of the treatments. We both unwrapped our gifts and she was so surprised and loved it. Even the nurse was excited and snapped a pic of us. We now wear them every Thursday and proclaim we are "Iron Buddies" till the end ...LOL
Thanks Mary! Your give-away made two ladies very happy. :)



Always, Kit

  16. Hi Kit,

    Thanks for stopping by! Heck, if you'd stopped by just a few days earlier you would've been included in my giveaway of a Gladys Taber book. Next time?

    I have a photograph of Sue arriving at a dinner party here. She was carrying that exact bee skep cake as she walked in the door. She looked like a little girl with a surprise.

    Have a great day and keep dreaming of the seaside. I sure do and I miss my little cottage, but love my garden here.

    All joys to you,
