Inspirational Monday: 'gift of jewels' received...














I received my gift of jewels in the post!!! I came home after an otherwise fabulous day. Didn't think it could get any better. But there it was. A handwritten envelope. I jumped up and down, anxiously waiting to get inside to rip it open.

A purple envelope that simply said Se'lah rested inside. It held the most beautious handmade card decorated with a matryoshka nesting doll theme...friends was the word that immediately came to mind as I noticed how they were leaning on each other so lovingly.

But that wasn't all. There was another envelope with a specially stamped moleskine for my bloggy thoughts when I'm out and about.

Aren't they beea-u-tiful? I treasure them both, from the very bottom of my heart.

Thanks a million, Julochka. You are a most precious jewel.

One Love.

julochka said...

ok, that's so weird, blogger ate my comment. i know i left one yesterday! oh well, i guess it was a sacrifice to the gods of google...

what i said then was i'm so glad it got there safely and that you liked it.

thank you so much for arranging this! it was a lovely thing to do. do it again soon (tho' i realize there's probably not more than one ethiopian new year per year). :-)
