Today was a day of gifts. First of all a friend of mine visiting Paris said she prayed for me at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Montmarte. It is the Feast of the Sacred Heart so this was a wonderful thing. It touched my heart.
It was a gorgeous day here. This afternoon I went for my acupuncture appointment, which is so helpful in managing chemotherapy side effects and other things. While I was there someone came to the house and left this statue and rosary on the front porch. My son answered the door as a gentleman was walking away.
There was a card that read:
Best wishes for a quick recovery. Hope this beautiful image of Our Lady gives you a measure of comfort.
I made this rosary with beads from the Philippines given to me by a friar.
The card was unsigned, and the gentleman zoomed off in a red car. That is all I know.
Thank you so much for the beautiful statue of Our Lady. It is made from narra or a Philippines hardwood in the Filipino style. I love it. I consider it a gift from Jesus and on this great feast of His, it is like he is pointing to His Mother. I hope one day to find out who you are, because I think someone drove far to bring this to me. God Bless you abundantly!
What can I say? Life is grand. Now for a big walk around the park in the golden hour. God Bless us all.
