i treasure this sweet gift. it was neatly positioned in a planter delivered during our grand opening. i remember the tears falling from my eyes when i opened the card and saw it was from marie bostwick, the author. i have a special connection to marie. it was a chance reading of one of her books, a thread of truth, that confirmed to me we were heading down the right path with this shop and our mission. every year when i see marie's bird among the new growth of springtime, i am reminded of the beauty of her words. and thankful.
