Just For Me

This is why I blog.
Now don't get me wrong.  I don't blog for gifts.
But it is so much fun when you don't have a clue
that someone has thought enough of you
to send you something.............. just because.
I drove up and found a little box at my door
and thought to myself.....
For me????


I was so excited that I ran right in and
opened it and found all these goodies.
Just for me.


Jenn sent me this sweet card  and made
me some special gifts from her heart.
The note inside was so sweet and I will always keep this card.
Just for me.
  
Jenn made me this beautiful necklace out of precious black stones.
You need to see this in person.
It is beautiful.
Just for me.


These are wool felt coasters that Jenn made.
In her letter she says that they are seasonal.
She says I can use a different one each season or use them all at the same time.
I will have these out all year long.
Aren't they beautiful?
Just for me.

Jenn doesn't know this but these gifts
came on a perfect day.  You know those
days that you just need something, but
you don't know what you need.
The gifts are wonderful and I will treasure them forever
but the friendship we have means more to me
than she will ever know.
She was my Angel today and she came right on time.
Just for me.

Winter.
Just for me.

Fall.
Just for me.

Spring.
Just for me.

Summer.
Just for me.

And you have to see this.......
A watercolor painting done by Jenn.......
Just for ME!!!!!
Thank you is not enough.
Aren't bloggers the best??

The Miracle Of Friendship 

There is a miracle called Friendship
that dwells within the heart
and you don't know how it happens
or when it even starts.

But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift
and you realize that Friendship
is God's most precious gift.

Today I am thankful for......precious gifts.

Bloggers are an amazing gift! I have enjoyed some special friendships since I began blogging in 2008. I have had an angel or two that has sent me something that arrived on a day when it was needed. What a blessing!
