true blue ~ posted by Melissa

new friendship

unexpected treasures

a theme to brighten my day

so much thought

and care went into this box

these gifts I can share with you

the sentiments and the words that were enclosed

are just for me ~ they are heartfelt and meaningful and I will treasure them always
thank you, Mimi ~ you make the world a brighter place
and mine that much better just by being you
edited to add: my friend Will (our blog readers know him as WillyG) just posted a beautiful harp piece that he recorded for his mom ~ he's multitalented and a gem as well ~

    1. I feel so lucky today, Tracey ~ I've met some wonderful people through knitting and ravelry and I'm constantly surprised and amazed by them

      this completely blew me away :)

    1. oh wow! that gave me goosebumps! what a beautiful melody for your mom! xo benzngems

  3. What a great surprise and what beautiful gifts... those are the best kind.

    1. you don't know the half of it, Trudy ~ there was thought (a lot) put into each and every item in the box

      I'm floored ~ I don't know what I ever did to deserve all the nice things that I've been surprised with over the last few months ~ I'm not worthy...but consider myself so very lucky

    2. You are more than worthy, you do a lot of nice things too. It is wonderful.

    3. ah, but you're just a little partial since you're my mother-in-law :)
      it is wonderful, though, isn't it?!

  4. I do love me some Lady Grey tea and Hugh Laurie!

    1. I'm looking forward to trying both for the first time :)
      thanks for stopping by, willowgreen!

    2. MORGEN?????? I logged off but 'willowgreen' was chewing on the back of my brain...where do I know that name from.....????

      HOW ARE YOU?!?!?!?! I've been thinking about you and your absence everywhere and now here you are! I hope you're well, old friend :)

  5. what a lovely sweet package and color themed!!! You are one lucky girl, Mel :)
