What do you do when you want to send a parcel to a blog friend, but do not know the address ? I did know that “A” and “B” were close friends, in distance and in heartfelt friendship, they shared some very special times together, although A had moved a good distance away some time ago.
Contact friend ‘A” and ask if you could please send me the address for friend “ B”. Yes, but I will contact B first and ask if that is OK. It was OK , after some probably funny emails between A and B. The first parcel was sent some time ago.
“B” had no idea that the parcel would come from NZ!!!
The email of thanks, told me a gift that is hand made with love is special, and I had tears as I read those words, in December 2015.
A few weeks ago I wanted to send a parcel to Friend A. Now I contacted friend B and asked the same.Again, emails sent and received, I truly thought that A would realise who was sending it.NO. I am so happy it was a real surprise.
Sue Beedoo lost her dearest horse Star after a very short illness. Sue is friend “A”. I had a wall hanging that seemed to fit in with my thoughts , and after emailing B, and attaching a photo of this, B thought the name “ Memory Tree of Love” might be suitable.
The extra leaf outlines were added, they do look more like hearts, but I thought that names could be written in there, and I know Star and others will have their place on the tree.
And, again, I had tears as I read Sue’s email to say this had arrived, and how it was so special .Her thanks had words from her heart.
One of the huge pleasures in life is creating something, being happy with the result, and knowing that someone a long,long way away will realise that blog friendship is so real, no matter the distance, the fact we will probably never meet, maybe a phone call or FaceTime talk if very lucky.
Some of the bags that have flown to all places North,South,East and West.
