Inspiration of Friendship

Sometimes in life we simply connect, with someone and instantly you feel it

in your soul, effortless,  and simply beautiful...


enter this sweet soul that leaped into my heart Polly of Sassafras Stuff

I love how she inspires me week after week, oh how I long to meet her one day

She checks in on me through emails and comments on my blog, she lifts my

spirits when I am suffering from my Lupus and sad about mama's cancer...


She's my friend miles away yet I feel her presence when I hurt. Awhile back she

did this POST on her August booth sale. I fell in love with these white artichokes

that she had and I left her a comment saying how I wish I were there

I would scoop them up in a heart beat.

The last few weeks have been so very rough on me and yet I kept getting little

notes from her reminding me that she was there.  So this morning while I was still

in my pj's the postman leaves this big box on my doorstep...


Look what she sent me...



I burst into tears so hubs grabbed the camera

 as he was crying too





she also sent these beautiful juice glasses with "K' etched on them







a mark on my heart that I will never forget







POLLY you inspire me daily and bless my heart

thank you endless for your love & friendship




I am linking up with another sweetheart of a gal


Debra I adore you

Happy Friday ladies and may the hearts you touch on the blog

always inspire your lives

Oh my, I love this post, because I love thoughtful people. When you are hurting, a little surprise in the mail, is just the ticket. Thanks, Polly, for reminding us what a good friend looks like.

Fondly,
