This little gift wrapped day









Quaint and sweet......this simple day, today. Beginning with a quick look at what beauty I could find....yes, even in the cold and forcast for more snow. Had to find it, I tell you! It showed itself to me early, thankfully. In the ice and the trees, no doubt. Of course, I found it there in my yard!
Then in some HeartArt journaling of course..........
And then best of all, a dear and precious friend. With a gift for me......oh this friend! A red pinky ring with a pink bow! This is the friend who's house burned.......totally gone, just beofre Thanksgiving. She is still giving and giving and giving. I can honestly tell you that I think she left me with some wings today, to go with that ring. I can only hope to fly as beautifully as this one! And you, and you and you.....You know who you are! What a gift we give each other in this friendship thing......and I want to encourage you to Love, and fly and look for the authenitc beauty all around you and to share and give. Me too. Happy Weekend my friends and feel the hug of encouragment to fly! And my gratitude! XXOO

What a touching story on the ring...sniff, sniff. Your friend's heart is toooooooooooooooooo precious...and oh so admirable. Those kinds of stories make me want to be a better human being. What an inspiring example of having an other-centered focus despite the circumstances of life. Give her a hug from me.
