He must have thought I had a screw loose.
The most wonderful, thoughtful gift, from my friend, Crystal at Be the change you want to see !! I have been so spoilt! A lovely set of cards, a Worship CD which is playing as I speak, Hawaiian Colada Rooibos tea, Ginger Bounce Rooibos tea, Icewine chocolate and best of all, a beautiful handmade card, with a handwritten note from Crystal.
Sigh. You cannot guess at how broad my grin is at the moment. And has been ever since it arrived. Thank you SO much, my friend. What a beautiful gesture of friendship.
I googled her address, and came up with a possible phone number, and called her. Of course I did. Thank heavens the number was right. And that she answered. And we talked for nearly an hour and believe me, the conversation never faltered for a second. It was such fun! Once I had explained who I was, that is!
What a lovely day it has been. I can't wait to meet her in person one day, and if you don't already know her, pop over now and visit. She and I are very alike. We laugh about how similar we are, and oh my did we laugh on the phone too. Conversation is so easy when you know someone so well.
If ever there was a good reason to blog, this is it. Chatting to friends on the phone, and meeting them in person too. I have been so blessed here. Both in the wonderful friends I have met and got to know in person, and those I have talked to on the phone. It just keeps getting better! We really are a community!
Thanks again, Crystal!
