Is This The Nicest Thing Or What??!!!

This afternoon my friend SUSAN brought over this candy bar poster. Only it wasn't on normal sized poster board . . .

It was on DISPLAY BOARD!! I should have taken a picture of it next to something so you can see how huge this thing is!

And it was covered in pink paper, given a border and says the nicest, sweetest things



She knew I was sad about leaving seminary so she gave me this as a "thank you" and to cheer me up!

Truthfully I was overwhelmed. I could hardly think of anything to say. I just couldn't believe she would put so much work into this. She even used her Cricut to cut out little words and had flowers covering the words on the candy bar wrappers that she didn't want to show. And I have no idea how she was able to even think about how to use all that candy the way she did. She is so clever!! And so very sweet!!

It really is one of the nicest things I think anyone has ever done for me.

So to my dear friend Susan---thank you so very, very much!

How sweet -- I had to laugh at some of the clever lines, like "what is true and what is poppycock." I'm glad you have good friends.

That is the fanciest candy-gram I have ever seen! Enjoy!

Hi Lori,

I remember a while back you posted about some fun party games you all played for a gathering (I think at your home). Does that sound familiar? I've tried to find it but can't locate it . . .

Are you leaving seminary forever or just for the summer? Either way, a very sweet tribute and I am sure it is well deserved. : )

ok, that is so great!!! Love it. I have been wanting to sit and write you an email... maybe now I can. Last day was today.
a few tears, but I did good.
I love those kids.
It is nice when you realize that you were there as their lies were touched.
Anyway, love this poster. i clicked on it to make it big and read it. So cool. Good stuff.
