If you are like me, you answered "it depends".

Yesterday my UPS man delivered a box to me...not highly unusual because I'm always ordering something online, right?

But not recently though, hmmmmmm. Maybe it's a mistake and meant for another address. No... it has my name on it. CURIOUS?? I was too!

I opened the box to find a card from a friend and these luscious treats! Let me tell you they are as good as they look! Strawberries + chocolate = YUM.
In all the people we come in contact with over years and years of our complicated lives, I still marvel at the wonderful friends we make - those that stand out and above - who love us in spite of our "uniqueness" - who seem to know just when we need a hand, or a shoulder to lean on - they send special packages wrapped in love - they make us laugh til we cry - they teach us lessons - and allow us to love them back making us both better for having been friends.

I am so blessed to have this person in my life - and no surprise, her name?'s "Joy" of course. Thank you my dear friend, you never cease to AMAZE me in so many wonderful ways.

Hug a friend today, surprise her, make her laugh - it makes you both feel good.


  1. This is a gooood surprise anyone would like to receive. I loved reading your post Linda. And of course your kind words on my blog keep me inspired to continue in this beautiful journey in art. It is a blessing to have friends like you...Joy is blessed! Thank you so much for taking the time... Hugs

  2. Hi, I happened to run across you on twitter and thought to check out your blog. I am so very thankful! It is such a blessing to have good friends in ones life. I am lucky enough to have more than one. Thanks for reminding me not to take it for granted and to be a blessing back to my friends! Love your blogs and once again, so glad I found you today!

    WIth your interest in art, I'm wondering if you would consider joining a community art piece (I'm extending the deadline until the end of april). I would be honored to have you. If you have time and interest, please check it out here:
