Amazing You

When you're down... feeling blue... missing some pep in your step, it's wonderful to have friends.  This month at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out, the monthly topic is Friendship. It has me thinking a lot about the people in my life who I call "friend".

A short while back, I was talking with Cheri about how dejected I was feeling about a few things going on in my world.  She sent me an email or two in an attempt to boot me out of those blue clouds.  I have to admit, I didn't want to see them, so I read them half-heartedly (which goes against all the wholeheartedness Cheri gives out) and continued on my woe-is-me path.

My wonderful friend Cheri took things a step further.  I opened my mail on Tuesday to find the wonderful bookmark pictured above.  It's absolutely beautiful and Cheri included a lovely message in the back.  It stopped my pity-party cold.

I have not yet used the bookmark for its intended purpose - to mark a page in a book.  Instead, I've been carrying it with me everywhere. 

I'm not quite out of my funk 100% but Cheri, this blog post is dedicated to Amazing YOU.  I am so appreciative that you took time out of your busy world to send me a little piece of love and friendship in the mail.  Words cannot express how much this gesture meant to me.  So I will just say...

Thank You!
