How Lucky I Am!

My good friend, Sharon, surprised me this week with this little tin filled with a heart-shaped album. It had been a Brighton Jewelry tin, and she thought it would be just perfect for a little album, and I agree. What is amazing is how she traced and cut all the hearts to make the pages: There is one for each letter of the alphabet! She included an alphabet poem about friendship, with one decorated verse on each page. Each page is different, with ribbon, buttons, flowers, or brads embellishing the verse.
Sharon is a very special person I met through scrapbooking. If it weren't for this hobby, our paths would never have crossed. I feel incredibly blessed to have her in my life. It isn't easy for me to open up to people, but Sharon's kindness and willingness to accept me as I am have helped me do that. I'm very touched and honored that she would take the time to make this delightful little book for me, and every time I see it I will remember our friendship. How lucky I am!
