Beside My Door

I've been waiting! It arrived! Today when I came home for awhile between my two care center ministries - there it was. The package I've been waiting for.I hurried to carry it inside. I couldn't wait to open it! Oh - oh - oh! What a sweet friend. She carefully wrapped each gift and tied it with a pretty bow. Four lovely gifts. For me. Recently my friend, BJ at Sweet Nothings, had a give-away - and I won! She said she added something extra. I couldn't wait to see what she sent. First, the gorgeous plate I won. It's more beautiful than the pictures show!Then the cutest little honey 'flavoring spoons' to sweeten coffee or tea.And a wonderful little book I'm delighted to have. I can't wait to sit quietly with a cup of tea and start reading it. (I'm sorry my flash messed up the picture!)And simply delicious-looking Spring towels for my kitchen! Or for anywhere I want to use them. Put them all together and they just make me smile.The sweet little note of friendship that BJ included made my heart sing. Thank you, dear friend. I'm so glad we met. I will always treasure the special gifts you gave to me. It won't be long before I show you where I put them. Until then I'll just enjoy each part of this special gift from a special lady who I am proud to call my friend.
