Between my birthday and Christmas I was blessed with gifts from friends...
 blog friends...
Friendship across the miles but ever so meaningful.



Sometimes you find that the miles between you are not that far and you take the leap of faith and put those miles away between you. 
Such is the case this week.





I am grateful, 
not so much for the gifts, 
although they are lovely and more than I could ever ask for.
But the love and caring that goes into each gift...





The friendship that has been gifted to me



From such dear ones that the Lord has hand picked to bless my life at this moment in time, to encourage, edify and bring pleasure


Donna, you are my gift.


Talented and beautiful with such a caring heart


To create such lovely gifts and be there to support and encourage
Thank you my sweet


But the Blessings do not end here




This week I was also blessed  with 
 Debra



Such a beautiful gift, made by her hand and put in mine.




One of her favorite creations taken from her neck and given to me. I was touched at Debra's giving heart. A heart that is fashioned from the heart of God.
Thank you, my sister.


And by mail...





And what a birthday surprise, from my friend Terri... such a gifted caring woman...





to make this journal and surprise me with it. Such a talented sweet friend.


Thank you, Terri



But it doesn't end there...



And so many miles away... what a wonder it is,
 that we can call each other friend...


This big world made small by our blogs


To see the talents of so many amazing woman and then to be able to call them friend... such it is with my friend
Carolyn



Thank you sweetheart.

- Mark Twain



I will be hooking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday to show the beautiful whites from my friends.
 Thank you Kathleen for WW #82

Blessings,
Rebecca

  13. Oh Rebecca,
    What beautiful, beautiful gifts and all made with love. As you say, the best part of each gift is the fact that they have all been made especially for you with such care and thoughtfulness. You will treasure those gifts forever and, each time you wear or look at them, you will think of the special person who made it. Lots of love. XXXX
