It's the Little Things- A Gift

I got a package in the mail from Dory the other day.

I love getting "good" mail and this package was definitely GOOD.

It was the best kind of package.....a-just-because kind of package. While she was on a recent trip to Las Vegas she picked up a few goodies just for me- just because.

How sweet is that?

Inside were some Las Vegas dice, some teeny tiny little mints in a cute little tin with Shannon on it, some absolutely beautiful earrings she made, and some mint type thingies that are good for your teeth (because she knows how much I love mints and she is trying to keep me from ruining my teeth with them:).

Also inside the package was this beautiful Brighton bracelet. Isn't it gorgeous?

I absolutely love it.
For lots of reasons.

Because it's beautiful.

Because it matches my ring perfectly.

Because it was a just because kind of gift.

But mostly because it was given to me by my beautiful friend who is truly a gift from God.
I honestly don't think I've ever done anything to deserve an amazing friend like her- but I thank God daily for her.

Nobody knows me like she does.
Nobody makes me laugh like she does.
Nobody is as much fun as she is.
Nobody makes me be real like she does.
Nobody is as funny as she is.
Nobody is a best friend like she is.


  1. Awww. Sweet words, my dear.

    I came home tonight after helping Mr. Lucky hang a whopping 46 in. tv at the clinic in preparation for the open house.... and because we are dummies, it took us HOURS to do something that should have been simple for smart folk. I am tired and cranky and wasn't even going to check email or blogs tonight but... decided to just see if I had any more photos of shoes and of course, if I'm online... I'm gonna check Sweet Blessings. :o)

    I can't tell you how big the tears are that welled up in my eyes. Thank you for the kind words.

    I love you and feel exactly the same way. You are precious to me and one of the greatest gifts from God EVER.

  2. How sweet! Beautiful bracelet!

  3. And indeed you are both blessed.
