TOO OFTEN WE UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TOUCH, A SMILE, A KIND WORD, A LISTENING EAR, AN HONEST COMPLIMENT, OR THE SMALLEST ACT OF CARING, ALL OF WHICH HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO TURN A LIFE AROUND

The Joy of the Luck
I left a comment at Carol's Crafty Creations for her Schnibbles pattern giveaway and now, believe it or not, Carol is sending Mon Ami, A Little Bit Country, Joy Luck, Plan C, Sunday Best, Tagalong, Roundabout, Imagine and Daily Doodler.
