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.......
