In June I took a novel writing class. It was sooooooo much fun as I love to write. While taking this class, I made a new friend. Her name is Donna French. I can't tell you why, but I knew just from the start that she was a really good person and I knew we would be friends. Not only is Donna a great writer, but she is also an incredible artist.
After months of us trying to get together for a visit, we finally got together last week. That's when Donna presented me with this.
Then, in the mail, came a gift from my dear blogging friend, Di. Di is one of the sweetest blogging friends I have. She has had a really hard year with the loss of some of her close friends, health and family issues and yet, she still sent me presents.
My childhood was pretty crappy and there were many Christmases that I didn't get anything. Yet, I always enjoyed the giving, even if it was only something I could afford from my leaf raking job. I always believe that gifts from the heart are best as they are the true gifts.
All of you that follow me, leave me comments, send me emails and brighten my day with your blogs, are gifts from the heart. I treasure each and every one of you!
But, like I said, I enjoy giving so don't forget to register for my giveaway. I'll pick the winner tomorrow. Until then, thanks so much Donna and Di for your thoughtful, heartfelt gifts. I am spoiled indeed!
Happy Christmas everyone!
