When I opened it ...I was so wonderfully surprised.
All prettily wrapped with lots of love and care.
In Robin Blue tissue paper all tied up with a lovely organza , same colored ribbon.
And then I saw a white envelope and found this glorious hand made card inside.
The sender knew me well as it incorporated everything that I love.
The package and it's beautiful contents where made and came from a dear, dear Friend.
Mary and I were the very BEST of Friends in our school days.
We were inseparable and sat by each other at lessons etc..
Unfortunately when we graduated school ...we simple didn't keep in touch.
Being that Guernsey is a tiny Island our paths did cross.
But always with family members etc...just exchanging pleasantries no in-depth chat.
We both married and bought up our families.
But my other dear Best School Friend Rosy and I have kept in touch and spent many wonderful times together as our Husbands worked together and Rosy got Mary to email me just a few short months ago
As if we have never been apart we have rekindled our friendship through long emails, photos and now as you see very cute gifts.
Thank You Rosy XX
Goodness ..I love everything about it.
Thanks Mary XX
How is it that people can talk so casually about a concept that we cannot even wrap our minds around?
Sometimes we have a friend and we sense that our souls are very closely connected.
We know that the connection is above time and space.
We know that wherever we are in our lives we will always remain friends.
Even if we do not see each other for years we are able to pick up right where we left off.
This is what people mean when they say friends forever.
When you find a friend keep them close.
For finding a really true friend is not that easy
Thanks for popping by
And letting me share this lovely gift and story of friendship with you
