Is there anything more special?
I don’t know who coined the phrase but there’s certainly a lot of truth to the saying, “You can pick your friends but you can’t pick your family”. Well I think I’m lucky on both counts because I’ve got a great family and some truly awesome friends.
Many of you have ‘met’ Darlene through blogging, as I did. From the first day I started reading Darlene’s blog, I felt a strong kinship. Later I found out that we have shared many similar life experiences…some good and some not so good.
Some time ago when I posted about my love affair with wool and the penny rugs I had made, Darlene indicated that she too loved things made from wool but that she couldn’t work with it because of an allergy to the lanoline. As a result of some clever sleuthing on my part, I was able to obtain Darlene’s snail mail address and I sent her one of my penny rugs as a surprise, and surprise her I did!
“Turn about is fair play” because yesterday, look what was waiting for me at the post office!
I knew a package was on it’s way because I had won a giveaway on Darlene’s blog a few weeks back…but I didn’t know what I had won.
Also in the package was a totally unexpected RAK gift that really touched my ♥.
I knew exactly where it was going to go. Yesterday morning, I did some reorganizing and rearranging in my studio and I moved a pine shaker table into the space where my desk used to be.
Blogging has certainly opened the doors to friendships in many different parts of the world and for this I am truly blessed. Thank you, Darlene for extending your hand in friendship because I most certainly have accepted it in that spirit. You too have touched my ♥.
