The language of friendship is not words, but meanings.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Yesterday a delightful package appeared in my post office box. A sweet little Mary Engelbreit card with the sweetest little hearts on the envelope. Mary's designs always make me smile and inside was this beautiful kitchen towel in my favorite colors of honey embroidered with my favorite sister bees.
Such a delightful gift to lift my spirits during this dreary and very cold winter. :) I mentioned in my last Ten on Tuesday post that I am basically a shy person and it is super hard for me to put myself out there, outside of my comfort zone, but I do it because I love the people I have met when I do step out of that comfort zone. My blog has really helped me forge some of my dearest friendships. I have no trouble with the words once I get to meet someone, as my friends will tell you, it's just the putting myself out there that I am always challenged with, but I challenge myself all the time and because of this, I am so fortunate to have the people I get to call friend in my life.
In the past 2 weeks, I have had a delightful visit with Claudia, received this lovely towel from Margene and we will have a fun time playing in the snow this weekend with Carole and Dale. I am very blessed!
I will end with this lovely poem.
~ Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
