My dear friend Leah, gifted me with this beautiful friendship assemblage for my birthday. It still brings tears to my eyes each time I see each beautiful detail and know all the love that was put into creating this gift from the heart. Thank you dear friend for not only the beautiful gifts but especially for being my friend through all the ups and downs. Friendship is so many different and wonderful things. Friends are there to cheer you on, to listen, to laugh with you and to travel this road of life together. They bring such light to even the darkest times. They are truly a blessing from God.

I have been so blessed to have so many wonderful friends that bring such joy to my life. Friends that I have been friends with for years, to new friends waiting to be found, to my blogging friends, to friends near and far, thank you for sharing my life with me. Your little comments, your loving gestures, and just knowing that you are there is reassuring and comforting.

It is with much sadness that I have had to say goodbye to one of my friends Diane Kelly, who God unexpectedly called home this past weekend. She was a beautiful, Godly woman who gave such light to this world by just being in it. Her infectious smile will be missed. Please say a little prayer for her and her family. At this Christmas time, when reflecting on all my blessings, I am so thankful for each and every one of you. Thank you dear friends.

Our friendship is a gift I hold glad that you loved your birthday presents:) I am, however, saddened that your friend Diane has passed away. We all know losing a loved one is difficult, but, it seems especially tough when it happens close to the holidays. Keeping her family in my prayers and wishing you peace & comfort.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. That is so hard to deal with especially this time of year when all around people are celebrating. But then, life is a celebration and we must cherish each and everday. Your gift from Leah is absolutely wonderful and spectacular. So much involved, so many details. It is just beautiful! And all the little extras special as well. Wishing you a wonderful day, much happiness and peace this holiday season. Blessings :) Tammy
