Do you have things that are so special to you because they remind you of a special friend?
I do and feel so lucky to have many dear, precious friends.
Over my fireplace is an absolutely gorgeous oil painting by one of my dearest friends, Dorothy. Dorothy is a fantastic painter, teacher and has published several books. I value her friendship and every time I look at this painting, I am so grateful to have her for a friend.
Another precious friend is Sabra. Sabra lives in Missouri and we don't get to see each other as much as I would like. We talk very regularly on the phone tho. She always gives me the most wonderful gifts - always something that I would love to buy myself but haven't.
She knows me so well and my likes. Several years ago, she gave me this beautiful windchime for my birthday. I love it so much and it hangs on my front porch. When I hear the lovely chimes, I always think of Sabra.
Sabra's husband is a genius when it comes to woodworking. One year for Christmas, he made this clock for me. Isn't it just the most beautiful piece. He has built homes and is so very talented.
Sabra and Evan are such precious friends.
And then there is my newest friend, Brenda. Brenda and I have been friends less than a year. We have become really good friends. She gave me this vintage Coca-Cola wooden crate which I used for my Fairy Garden. (You will notice quite a few Coke items in my post - it's one of my many collections).
I am so thankful at this time of the year for alot of things. One of my greatest blessings is the number of really, true friends that the Lord has blessed me with thru the years.
I am truly grateful and blessed.
Till next time, Judy
