It's Friends week here at TFC so today I'm talking about great gifts friends have given me.
I have two best friends, one I've known for 32 years (BFF1) and one for 22 years (BFF2).
For my bridal shower, BFF2 arranged with a few other folks to give me a very expensive pool cue to replace the one that had been stolen from a bar one night when I was out shooting.
Then last week, I came home to find a message from UPS saying they had a package I needed to be home the next day to sign for. I grumbled, "Oh great. Probably some other writer-type person wants a favor and they're being anal, making me sign for it - I can't wait around all day!" With a knowing smile, my husband said, "I don't think it's what you think it is." Hmm...what did he know that I didn't? Only that BFF1 had sent me an entire case of Prosecco, my summer drink of choice which I'd shared with her during her visit from Colorado the week before. A whole case??? I don't live the kind of life where people send me things like that! Wait a second. I guess now I do. I get things like that and pool cues because I'm lucky to have friends who know me so well, they know exactly what I want and they like to give it to me.
So here's to friends! And here's to friends bearing gifts!
QUESTION OF THE DAY: WHAT UNUSUAL GIFTS HAVE FRIENDS GIVEN YOU THAT MADE YOUR DAY WHILE MAKING YOU FEEL KNOWN AND LOVED?
