    I would like to thank who ever sent it to me. There isn't a return address. I received a gift card in the mail to Joann's . Thank you very much for thinking of me. It's funny cause I read the storys about how the person is in tears then receives something that makes them feel better. Well it's my turn I was sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself because I don't know how much longer I am going to have a job. I was opening the bills and I had a card in the stack. I opened it up and there was the gift card.
    You guys really don't know me, just by what we all type back and forth to each other- but I feel so loved by my friends here on the board. I just can't say enough about the people that have touched my life.
    Thanks again my friend.

    How wonderful! You make sure you smile all the time you are shopping with your new card. It is a wonderful thing someone did for you. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

    WooHoooooooooo...Shopping always make you feel better, especially when you don't have to use your own money.

    One year my niece didn't have money to buy her 'traditional' gifts for birthdays etc., so she gave us gift cards from the Dollar Store. We actually had a great time in there and asked for the same thing the following year. This year I got JoAnn's. :thumbup:

    Go shopping and let us know what you purchased. :lol:
