Wonderful friends

Pin It

I have made some wonderful friends over the internet. Friends that I have never met in person but we keep in touch through sites and blogs that we all visit regularly. These ''cyber'' friends have touched my heart many times with their thoughtfulness.

Yesterday I received a large parcel in the mail. It was from one of my ''cyber'' friends that I have never met but have spoken to on the phone many times.

Darlene aka 'dean' send me these lovely items as a Christmas present! I carefully unwrapped each item that she sent, amazed at her thoughtfulness.

The pinecone ornament she made herself and it is just wonderful. So creative (I just have to steal her idea!). There was also another little ornament of a little child angel. Both now adorn my Christmas tree. The Christmas book I have already begun to fill in the blanks but the best part was she signed the inside front cover. Now each year when I pull out this book, I will remember her kindness. The picture of the mittens now hangs on my wall and the little unwrapped present sits on my china had a special message attached that read...

This is a very special gift
That you can never see
The reason it's so special is
It's just for you from me
You never can unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied
Just hold the box close to your heart
It's filled with love inside
Thanks Darlene, I will treasure them always. :)


  1. How very, very sweet! There's nothing better than a good friend, even if you've never met! :)
