Humbled (Part 3)

Welcome back!
In case you missed the previous two posts,
you can catch
Part One Here,
I made cookies and auctioned them off
for Collin's Special Service Class
Part Two Here,
Collin was bless with an iPad from the
wonderful people at
So..this is now part three
the rest of the story, if you will.
This part of the story...
it was HARD to write about!
Hard, because, well, I am just so blessed.
I have the most amazing network of
cookie friends.
Friends from all over the country
Friends from other countries
Friends that are so caring,
giving and supportive.
I am so blessed to have them in my life!
These are ladies that will help me with a cookie
that does not look right, by giving me suggestions.
These are ladies that will shop for me,
because I live in a baking goods desert.
These are friends who will send me a
retired cookie cutter, because I have looked forever
for it, and they have it, and don't use it.
These are friends who, find out I don't have a
cutter, that should be a staple for every cookier, and
have one shipped to me.
These are friends, who find puzzle patterned stuff,
and ship it to me, because they know
puzzle pieces make me happy!
These are friends who, find a puzzle cutter, find out it is only
available in the UK, and find a way to get it for me,
These are friends who will spend their day off
running to TJ Maxx and Home Goods, searching
for Pumpkin Emulsion for me.
These are friends, who, when I tell them a package is
lost in the mail, help me track it down so that a
customer can have cookies for their special event.
These are friends, who, when they find out my cookies are lost,
offer to bake new cookies, and drive them one hour, just
so there will be cookies for an Autism Walk.
These are friend, who, will help me with graphic
work, because I have not talent for that.
Get the point?
So...I tell you this, because what they did for
Collin and I, is simply mind blowing.
So, want all the details?
Here it goes.
When we last left off, it was Monday
Collin had just got his iPad.
Life was good!
I was so excited for him
He was excited
I was humbled at all the love and support
my friends were showering down on me.
Look what started showing up in my

I guess, my friends got the news about Collin's iPad
long before I did!
Well...I started asking...and asking...and
Finally...the story came out!
Melissa of Cookies for iPads, had told my friend
Heather of
SugarNoshTreats, Collin was getting an iPad.
Heather, just could not keep a secret, and told others, lots of others!
It would seem that all my friends KNEW Collin was getting and iPad, and they
kept it a secret from me...
the little boogers sent Collin
gift cards to use for his iPad apps. Gift Cards, for him to use for accessories for his
iPad, Gift Cards for him to use to buy stuff for his class.
AND they sent the sweetest cards, letters, emails, messages, and cookies.
They kept coming, and coming and coming!
Ya'll, I was in tears for a week!
Just when I thought I had my act together, I would get something else.
Good People
Kind People
Loving People
Generous People
I have met NONE of these ladies, but I email, message, text and chat with many
of them on a daily basis. They are my rocks, they lift me up, hold me up, encourage me,
motivate me, help me, make me laugh, make me cry, and listen to me.
And I am proud to call each and everyone of them
They are NOT my "cookie" friends.
They are NOT my "Internet" friends.
These ARE my friends!
I KNOW them, and they KNOW me!
And, even though I have never met them, if I need one of them
they are there, just a call, text, email, or message away.
From the very bottom of my heart
Thank you Ladies!
Thank you for your friendship!
Thank you for supporting me!
Thank you for caring for me!
Thank you for caring for Collin!
Thank you for your kind hearts!
Thank you, for being YOU!
You are amazing ladies...
I am so blessed
 to have each and everyone of you
in my life!
Until next time.......


  1. What a beautiful post Kim. It brings me to tears. You are blessed and what I'm not sure you realize is that as much as you are blessed by others we are blessed by you. You have been there for me when I need someone to talk to and you give great advice. You are a true friend. My "twinkie" :) May you continue to receive many more blessings in your life because you deserve them. Hugs :)

  2. Awwww you are so very very loved Kimmy!
