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...

    1. Again, thank you my dear friend. You are a treasure.
