Another Christmas Story

We all have special moments in our lives. Moments that reach deep within our hearts and touch us with a very special feeling.
A while back I was chatting with a friend and in conversation told her about a spicific kind of jewelry I collect. That collection is displayed on a quilted Christmas tree. I do not buy the pieces in my collection, it is made up of the love of friends who find the pieces at garage sales, family jewel boxes etc. I told her to keep a look out. I while later she sent me pictures of some pieces she had found, while they all fit the bill one just stood up and screamed at me. When I told her which one, she laughed and said her daughters had already looked it up and it was selling on EBAY for $125. Holy cow!! I'm not collecting for that reason and had no idea of the worth. I told her to keep looking..LOL
So yesterday I get a package in the mail. I assumed it was the "Artful Bag" I've been waiting for in a swap. It wasn't...It was a beautiful little stocking from my friend..adorned with an ornament and gift tag. Inside was a tiny package also adorned with small peppermint ornaments... You know where I'm going with this don't you?

It takes a special kind of person , especially in todays times, to look beyond the monitary value of something and think of a friend. To say to themselves that the friends happiness is worth far more...Yes indeed, it takes a special person and I'm so blessed to have her as a friend.
Ironically, I didn't display the quilted tree this year...too much stress and pressure for some reason...But thats okay because I plan to wear that pin all season anyway...I just LOVE it. It is truly a gift from the heart...Isn't that what it's all about? Merry Christmas to all!!!
