I had ordered some hand wipes from Amazon and so, when the package arrived today, I didn’t rush to open it as I knew what it was…or so I thought! I finally opened the package and to my great surprise, it was filled with gifts from dear Joy Hamilton in Canada. Joy and I have never met but have become virtual friends through this blog. I am so honored and thrilled that Joy has sent me such beautiful and thoughtful holiday gifts.
First I saw the lovely letter Joy had included – please note that it is folded in a beautiful origami design:
This letter that was included with all of the gifts really touched my heart – I am so touched by this line in Joy’s letter: “I consider you my new friend for 2014.” And I feel the same way about you, Joy!
Then I pulled out this beautiful silk bag.
And then out came a fantastic bamboo wind chime…Joy, did you make this yourself? I LOVE it!
What a gift of treasures…everything in that package is so very special to me. Joy, you are a true representative of your name…you have brought great joy to me during this holiday season! I really can’t get over your incredible thoughtfulness and generosity. Thank you so much for all of this…but most of all, for your friendship.
