A few years ago I had the pleasure of meeting the most wonderful lady! She found me through an article published in Romantic Homes Magazine and contacted me about placing an order for a refurbished vintage Train Case (“Gathering Case” TM). The Magazine had done a photo shoot in my home and had included pictures of my artwork. I didn’t realize it then, but this "Pink-Rose-Lovin'" stranger was destined to become my forever friend.

I believe God sends people into our lives to make our journey on this planet easier. I also believe they come when least expected and quite possibly when least deserved. My fair-haired friend easily and quickly satisfied a void in me that only a true friend could fill. Never judgmental and forever kind, in three short years she’s taught me the bonds of sisterhood can often transcend the closest of bloodlines. She’s been a faithful servant to the Most High; a cheek turner and a confidant. When she forgives, she forgives! The transgression is buried in a sea of forgetfulness…never allowing the curtain of darkness to hide the very light that one day may be called upon to illuminate her own path.

So…to the one I affectionately call, ~Sweet Tea~…

“Thank you for always making me feel so special. Thank you for allowing me to cry on your shoulder when life gets too hectic, too tough. Thank you for sharing yourself and looking past my imperfections. Thank you for your concern and prayers and for your own special way. I pray that all of the blessings you bring to my life~ I can return to you. You are so loved….”

I think that is exciting meeting a new friend. I know the Lord sent me a wonderful friend when I least expected it. It's something you treasure for a life time.

I enjoy coming over, it is so refreshing especially coming from someone who loves the Lord. Of course your blog is beautiful as well with the gorgeous soft pinks. I know when I started my blog I couldn't find anything with the pink color such as this one.

Isn't it wonderful to have a friend who allows you to be you, no matter what you shows up at any given time. I miss my friend back in new england who was my Taz. Truly do.

CONGRATS LEE LAURIE on your win! I had soooo hoped to win. Not meant to be. ENJOY!!
