Friends always know when you need a lift even when they're many miles away. My dear friend Leenda (it's really Linda, but I just like to say Leenda) in Virginia sent me a sweet package filled with love today. It was just what I needed.

The first item was a little pewter pocket cross to carry in my pocket, which I did and will. It has a meditative swirl on the back which feels "right" when I rub it between my fingers. She also sent me an ankle bracelet made of hemp with purple beads woven into it. (We're just a bunch of hippies, afterall!) The purple beads represent peace. I've already tied it to my ankle (but will spare you another picture of my ugly feet). I made a wish when I tied it; and I was told that when the bracelet breaks or falls off, it means your "wish" will come true. I made a wonderful wish so I may just need to break it off -- kidding! Isn't that lovely though? Linda somehow knew I needed a pick-me-up; and just out of the blue, she sent me these wonderful presents.

Aren't friends wonderful? Indeed they are.

Ah, yes - that's what friends are for - to cheer you up when you need it and support you along the way. Lovely gifts from a thoughtful friend.

What a lovely gift Rosa. You are such a sweetheart, and put so much good energy out into the world, it's no wonder so much good comes back to you.
