I will be celebrating a birthday soon. I don't like birthdays. Never have. I do not enjoy being the center of attention that having a birthday brings.
I do however have wonderful friends and family who take the time to wish me the best, send and give gifts or spend some time visiting with me. I appreciate it all ..... every little bit.
I have a dear friend whom I never met in person. We met on a frugal website forum and there the friendship began. We swap stories, dreams and sorrows. I have 'watched' her oldest grandson grow through the years and 'witnessed' another one being born. Now she has a third grandchild on the way and I am so excited for her!
She enjoys so many of the same things I do ..... crafting, gardening and living simply. Although for now our friendship consists of emails, messages and phone calls. One day I am sure, we will meet in person and it will be as if we had never met. We call each other our 'kindred sister'.
Deannie was ever so thoughtful and sent me a lovely birthday present. Amazingly Deannie does not know what outfits I like to wear or my style BUT she could not have picked a better present. Actually she had the present MADE especially for me by one of her co-workers.
Isn't it gorgeous?! I just LOVE it!!! When I chose something to wear for work, I like to incorporate scarves into my outfit. I can wear the same outfit a whole week (I don't, but I could! LOL) and it wouldn't look the same just by changing the scarf, accessories and footwear. So this present was a PERFECT thoughtful gift!
Thanks Deannie and please give those grandbabies Liam and Rio a huge hug and kiss for me!! Talk to you soon my friend.
Have a wonderful day and remember to give your loved ones a hug!
