I have been missing in action for a L'iL bit , but I surface now as I want to say a well deserved Thank you to friend , A friend who I have come to love from across the miles , this computer Internet generation we have become , we can open up our worlds and heart to those otherwise unobtainable,I love computers ;-)
Now I have meet many people online and have developed many new friendships , and some of those friendships have withered and some have bloomed into what will be a long life lasting bond that I thank GOD for and am tickled pink about , the friend I am talking about in this post is Diane of Diane J. place ..........I am thanking her for a gift she had sent me via snail mail , now as beautiful as it is and as much as we all love presents which I Thank her very much for , I am not shallow and just happy to get something in the mail ! I am really Thanking her two fold , for the gift ,the physical gift and also the gift of her Love , as she made this gift an Afghan , by hand and with many prayers and love to surround me and my loved ones ,To say the least I was deeply moved by the whole thing and I believe even if you sound mushy /soft hearted ,weird or different ,I believe you should tell people how they make you feel or what you think about them if it is nice or a compliment etc . SO I usually do !
It was not just her thought fullness and hard work that went into the gift, it was her heart , her words , I was deeply touched when she said she prayed as she knit and I/my family would be surrounded in love and prayer when cuddled up in the Afghan , well ,it melted my heart ,I still get all mushy when I think of it !!!!
I will use this Afghan throughout my life and it shall be a constant reminder of friendship and love as my friend Diane means to me ((((((((BSHUGS)))))))))
the very first time I blogged I had been looking indirectly for pen pals , being a scardy KAT , I was hesitant over everything and all I could really find was prisons who wanted pen pals etc ,I was looking in the wrong area , I believe in fate and fate guided me to Blogging and so on . I am some glad I didn't answer BUBBAS letters HAHAHAHAHAHAHA kidding .
