I have a great number of  friends living across the world, and I just want to say how grateful I am to have each of them in my life.  I have received some fabulous gifts from them over the years, and I hope they all know how thankful I am .  This post is about saying, ‘Thank you!’ in a public way.

This morning, the doorbell rang.  When I opened the door, there stood a delivery man with a long, tall package.  When I opened it, I could not believe my eyes!    I a big fan of Kim Larson’s art.  Kim and I  both worked together  at one time, and have remained friends through the years.

I brought the package in and opened it.  It contained a replica of one of Kim’s pieces that she sold a long time ago, but that I have always loved.  It is called, “Love” and portrays two lovers embracing.  Since my home is already filled with Kim’s art, I know already that this piece will fit in beautifully:


Isn’t it divine?!  The thought that she made this piece especially because she knew that I loved it, really touched my heart.  I am just flabbergasted by Kim’s generosity!

Thank you, Kim…..and thanks to all of my friends, for your kindness and generosity.  You are loved and appreciated!
