The Start of a New Collection
If you remember, I lost a box of books that I loved. They were books mostly from when I taught, and the ones I read over and over to my students. Chris Van Allsburg, Auntie Clause books, Cranberry Thanksgiving...just to name a few. One book was from my elementary school librarian, The Second Witch, I loved that book. I read it so many times in grade school, the librarian gave it to me when I graduated from high school. I read it to my class every year. It was gone. And I cried (I know you are surprised).
Well, I got home and there was an envelope from my dear friend Suzanne. Inside was a copy of The Second Witch. I couldn't believe it. Of course I cried again. I don't know why I love this book so much, but I do and I am so thankful to have it back. I reread it and put it someplace safe in my office. I am considering a safety deposit box for it (really).
How blessed am I that I have such thoughtful friends that go out of their way to bring joy to my life. I can't imagine how or where Suzanne found this, I am so thankful to her that she did. Suzanne, herself is a gift.
Now, if that gave any of you ideas, there was this box of diamonds I lost...
