The blessing of a best friend

...a real friend sticks closer than a brother."
Proverbs 18:24

Once again I have been overwhelmingly blessed
by my bestest and dearest friend in the whole
wide world.

Remember the post I did a couple days ago when
I went to that neat garage sale and found lots of
seam binding and other goodies?
Well... dear friend Peggy happened to go to the same sale
{before I did}
and she picked up a couple things for me.

We met for lunch Friday at
and she handed me a bag with tissue paper
sticking out of it.
I knew it was not my birthday...
and certainly not Christmas,
{ain't ready for that yet!}
but just a regular day.
I was so surprised and giddy at the same time.

The first thing I pulled out of the bag was this
gorgeous glass shaker with the silver top.
I was stunned to find out when I got home that it
matched perfectly with my salt and peppers that I
found earlier this summer.
Love it when that happens!

She also gave me a cream color vintage pottery planter that is wonderful too, but I didn't get a picture taken of it yet. Maybe I can add it to my white Wednesday post this week.

Do you have a best friend?? I truly pray that you do and if you don't that one will come across your pathway soon. I can't imagine what I would do without her in my life. She is my go to person, we talk...and talk...and talk some more and she makes me laugh so hard at times I almost pee my pants. {now that is quite a friend...or it could be my age too. lol.}

Her life has gotten much busier, {she is a grandma now to two little ones and a farmer's wife...busy, busy, busy} and it seems that we are off running in different directions most of the time , but I pray that we always make the time for each other. always...always...always!

Love you my BFF!!

Blessings and friendship to each of you~
