Gift of Jewels Gift of Friendship
When things seem to be looking down and happy is hard to find, the Universe or for me, God steps in and sends the right people at the right time. People that enjoy your company (just the way you are) and do not expect anything from you just good conversation and laughter. God knows I needed the postive support and love. My darling husband has been remarkable (as usual). The only downside would be the fabulous meals that I have been forced to eat! I amazed by the outpouring of love and friendship, both in real life and in cyberspace. I have been astounded to realize just how many lovely people I have come to know. Making new friends is fabulous...my friends from Nia class...my cyber buddies...my husband's friends from grade school and high school. Nuturing older friendships from my neighborhood (we laughed until we had tears in our eyes) Book clubs friends reading Eat, Pray, Love and watching the movie...having an intense craving for Italian food after. "Floozie friends" that love you fiercely enough to allow sadness and step in to offer support and comfort. So thanks to all my beautiful friends!
My dear friend, Se'Lah of Necessary Room is hosting another round of "The Gift of Jewels" This will mark the third time I have participated in this wonderful outpouring of love and friendship around the globe. I am so excited to plan something to mail to my "newest" friend. I have met a very funny Mamma of four grown sons and a beautiful, creative spirit in Denmark both of whom share parts of their lives with me as a result of Se'Lah's love, generosity and giving spirit.
I am filled with gratitude and humility and IT IS ALL GOOD!!!
