Learning about friendship.....

Friendship is an amazing thing..... 

I'm going to take this opportunity, while I know Jenny is on her way back from a camping trip with the family, to let you all in on a little secret: I am a lucky, lucky girl.

Last week I went out to the mailbox and found a package from Seattle. I thought it was something Ben had sent Ian, so imagine my surprise when I opened it and found something addressed to me! (Ian was bummed out, I should have read the label before I blurted out that it was for him. OOPS.)

Inside was this hoop, lovingly embroidered and finished, with a sweet card from Jenny that said she'd known I had been going through a rough patch, so even though she started making this for herself she'd decided to send it to me once it was done.

Did I mention she managed to get it in the mail while planning and packing for her trip? 

Somehow that "rough patch" doesn't seem so rough anymore, knowing I have a friend like this.......


  1. Aw you're so sweet to post this! I'm glad it arrived in one piece. Love you!

    1. PS: Ben is still working on a letter and/or project for Ian. It keeps changing and I need him to focus... I'll keep you posted.

  2. Just like Family good Friends are priceless. I hope this cheers you up each and every time you look at it. I was a little blue once and a good Friend sent her husband around with a cheer up bag - a quilting mag, chocky, herbal tea bag and a lovely card. Still makes me smile to think about it. Cheers, Karen
