A Special Gift And A Friendship Swap.




Good morning friends...Today I thought I would share with you a very special gift I received and some swap goodies that I received in the mail from Michelle over at Rocking Chair Stitches http://rockingchairstitches-michelle.blogspot.com/. Michelle and I were partner up in a Garden, Friendship Swap that Tricia over at HillCrest Home Prims http://triciamcn.blogspot.com/ was hosting. The swap was put together by Tricia in hopes that we would make or find that one "SPECIAL FRIEND" that is so hard to find. We were suppose to get to know our partners and learn all about them, through writing back and forth. With that being done....Tricia was hoping that once we learned about each other we might form a bond and that it would grow and blossom into a long and wonderful "SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP". But, sadly to say we all know for other various reasons sometimes, things have a habit of not work out as we have hoped they would.... Not being compatible, things coming up in our busy lives, different chain of events happening...etc. and to find that one "TRUE SPECIAL FRIEND" is rarity and very hard to find. Some may go through there whole lives searching for that "ONE TRUE SPECIAL FRIEND" and never find them and theres others who are blessed and have one already. I am sure that we have all made some wonderful friends in our life time and one can never have to many friends in there life, as we all need them. But, that one "TRUE SPECIAL FRIEND" .......is a special gift, a blessing from above and only our hearts will tell us when we do find them. I have a special saying that I love which is......"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor touched, but they are felt in our heart".
Ok, by now you must be thinking....where in the world is she going with all of this??? Is she a little off her rocker or what?? LOL Just bear with me for a few.....it's all most over..trust me here....LOL
First off I would like to thank Michelle for "ALL" the goodies she sent me....I love them all! Especially the Penny Rug Kit and that wonderful little crow on the wood block. I also want to say I am sorry for the loss of your dad and I am sorry that it prevented us from really getting to know one another. I think we could have been friends if we had more of a chance to get to know one another! I also want to thank you......for giving me the chance in finding that one 'SPECIAL FRIEND" that I have been searching for, for a very long time! With out all the chain of events that happened through this swap I would have never found her.... Believe it or not I have been blessed with Tricia over at Hill Crest Prims! Her and I have hit off! With emailing and chatting back in forth we have found we have so much in common, we are like to pea's in the same pod(sorta speak) it's almost scary that we are so much alike. We have talked non stop over the last couple days on the phone, it's like we have known each other for our whole lives. Just unbelievable and I know that we already have the makings for a friendship that will blossom and grow into something so wonderful! So see friends....when we least expect it, what can happen. They say everything happens for a reason, and I truly believe it! I have to say I did go into the swap with hopes of finding that special someone....but when things didn't work out as planned, I was just happy with what God had dealt me, never dreaming in million years that my "SPECIAL FRIEND" was just right around the Conner waiting...(it just proves he does work in mysterious ways and everything happens for a reason) Thank You Lord, Thank You Michelle, and a Special Thank You to my new "SPECIAL FRIEND'" Trica ( I have been so blessed)....I also want to Thank all my "SPECIAL" blogging "FRIENDS" that I have met through blogging and along the way, your wonderful comments and friendship also means the world to me........Until next time friends....... Big Hugsssss Mary
