Wonderful Gift!

I received the most amazing gift in the mail today!  Amazing in so many ways, it was totally unexpected and for no occasion, this gorgeous card and necklace created by my very good friend, Donna, just because she was thinking of me!  Little did she know, I was thinking of her too.  On the inside of the beautiful easel card she said that she misses our play time together - I just said the same thing to my husband this morning! We only live about two hours away including a short ferry trip but we don't seem to get the chance to make the journey as often as we'd like.

A hummingbird is a very special symbol to me, it invokes the spirit of my amazing mother who we lost two years ago next week.  This gift fills me with love; love for my Mom and love for a very special friend - thank you Donna, you are an amazing artist and an inspiration, hope to see you soon.  Love you lots.


  1. Hi Rhonda! Thank you for coming by to visit my blog! What a sweet thing for your friend to do for you. Gifts always mean the world to us, but a surprise gift like that touches the heart even more. Just hearing you talk about the hummingbird and it's special meaning was so touching and to have a friend who knew what that meant to you, is really lucky I think!
