~FRIENDSHIP~

Friendship~
On a sunny day in August Travis and I returned home from running an errand to a package waiting on the back porch...this particular day was a difficult one...our spirit's were low as my niece Darlene had just passed away...I picked up the package and quickly recognized the return address... Bakersfield CA....I instantly knew the package was from Kim...her  blog is My Field Of Dreams...I consider Kim to be a dear friend and  although we have never met in person, he is a kindred spirit...Enclosed in the package was a heartfelt note,  which brought me to tears... a beautiful primitive rug with its hand dyed wool, hooked by Kim. I believe the rug to be a Cathy Greschner  design...also enclosed was a very sweet hand crafted wooden chicken also made by Kim...Now, when I think of Kim I think of her beautiful fields of sunflowers and her many lovely chickens...As Mr. Henry David Thoreau wrote  "The language of friendship is not words but meaning."

As Travis said "granny isn't it nice to get surprises in the mail...they make us happy."  I smiled and thought to myself yes Travis... more than you know...Thank you Kim- not only did this kind gesture put a smile on my face but also in my heart...
"The best kind of friend is one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had...~Unknown~

Those are wonderful gifts to bring a smile.
I find I am enjoying making things that are more calming and happy, lately.
But I still love prim too and have lots of plans for future projects in the coming year.

Oh Julie,
What I really wished, was that I could just be there to sit with you on the porch.
This was the best I could do. You are still such an inspiration to me.I would have never had the courage to begin blogging if not for you. You have always blessed my heart, my dear friend in Maine.
